What a day, I get my drawings in the morning. Go out to the yard to get my pipe, 4 sticks, 2 countries, plus the fittings, China, Russia and the fittings are good old USA. I go to cut what I need the Russian pipe has this black tar like coating and won't cut(burning mind you) worth a crap even with most of it ground off. The Chineese pipe cuts ok . I go to fit an American elbow to 2 lengths of Russian pipe, ID ok, OD a little large, welds fine. Next victim, American tee to Chineese pipe, HMMMMM ID and OD a good 1/16 off. Last but not least, Chineese to Russian pipe, the Chineese pipe is a Good 3/32" smaller and almost lays in with a 30 degree bevel to the ID of the Russian pipe. Just goes to show the global economy in action. All I want is Usa(or Canada) pipe and fittings
