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.
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"
He is talking 2" and 4" conduit here, welding is not an option normally. In fact I can't remember seeing it done ever.
"When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)
