      they accomplished 2 of the 3 plumbers rules and actually improved on them.

      since we were always told not to chew our fingernails, they designed a nail scraper built into the pressed fitting

      and the old rule of paydays on friday, has been drastically improved.

      every time i use my propress or any other ridgid tool, it's payday

      now if they could only make pooh go uphill

      charlie, i'll try doing some test with different jaws and fitting brands.

      is 1/2'' the worse. what machine are you using? the 210 or 330 using the jaws or swivel rings?

      just for you charlie

      Are you poking fun at Ridgid pumps?

        I have a few questions for you.
        What brand of fittings are you using?
        Is the fin that bad on every size or is the 1/2" the worst?
        You are using an RP-210B correct?
        For up to 2" which tool are you using?
