    Re: pipe threading

    collinds 44a or a ridgid 141 geared head threarer. Both a pretty penny! the 4" is the expensive part. the 2" you can trehad with a ridgid 65a. It may be cheaper and faster to weld the 4"

      Re: pipe threading

      Just how much do you plan to be threading? If large amounts are going to be done. I'd recommend a 1224 machine. This machine will allow you to do 1/2 all the way to 4 inch. This would be a quicker thread time than a 141 geared threader. The 141 and 65r Mentioned are great tools as well, it really boild down to a) speed and b) do you already have a 300 powerdrive or other machine to power these two?

      If you've got alot, go the 1224 route. With that being said. Once you start pricing the 300pd, stand, 141, 65r oiler, and pipe supports your gonna be real close to the cost of a 1224 with stand and supports.

        He is talking 2" and 4" conduit here, welding is not an option normally. In fact I can't remember seeing it done ever.

            Yeah and if you had not screwed up on the reaming you could have done it in under 60 seconds.
