ID:	15243 a customer gave me this a couple weeks ago toledo pipe threader from a mine that was opperational at the beggining of the 1900's put my ridgid number 15 next to it to give you an idea of its size it must weigh 60lbs easy.. im guessing it was an off of some sort of pto? or something any ideas?

    Looks like an early version of a Hogs Head conduit threader,used for 2in to 4in ridgid conduit. The rings are bushings for different size conduit [2in to 4 in] to be threaded. The square drive gear is for either a ratchet or porta pony to drive the head for threading. Nice gift.

      That thing is huge! My first thought when I seen that was "boy, it would be great to have a tool like that at work back in them old days. What would really suck is when you went home and wanted to do something like that, and not have the tool to do it..."

Probally fifteen with the toledo. The gears seem to be made of brass thou the extra dies are in real good shape id like to try and use it. i was thinking four inch pvc shedule eighty?
