  • Hey man, how olds that threader ?

    Seriously, it's a 400. I was wondering about manufacture dates. It looks pretty old. Anybody know ?

          Yea, it's way old, but where can you find a museum piece for under $200.00 ? My buddy told me about it I thought for sure he was talking about a 300.

              Those machines are built like tanks. Up until the early mid 80's my dad/grandpa used to have one on each of the trucks along with 12R and 65R dies, cutters and reamers. Back in the day, you couldn't be a plumber without one of those 400 machines........I think the ones they used were from the 50's/60's. They made them for a long time I know
