      Post a photo of the machine or model # and there should already be a detailed owners manual that exist.

      Is it a ridgid machine, rems, rothenberger/ collins?

              Always use spell check when writing your manual, and have it proof read by someone else.
              You are more likely to not see your own mistakes than a fresh set of eyes.

              Using spell check on the forum never hurts either.

                  I think NHMaster has a video of himself demonstrating threading technique.

                    Re: pipe threading

                    Actually, I don't understand why an apprentice needs a manual to learnt his most basic of pipe trades skills.
                    Isn't an apprentice by definition a person who works under the guidance for an expert in the field in order to
                    learn their trade?

                    How to use a rule, how to call out measurements, how to name a fitting, how to cut threads, these are all basic
                    skills necessary to cutting and threading pipe as we all know, and you learn them best not from a book but from
                    doing with someone coaching you.

                    So if a journeyman or master plumber is the best person to teach an apprentice, who should write a book about
                    the subject if one is needed?

                    You probably need a little of both worlds, the journeyman and the engineer. I think you need a co-author.

                          Yup.
                          I say, you listen and learn.
                          I do, you watch and learn some more.
                          You do, and I coach/correct where needed.
                          You're on your own, take it slow and build skill, speed comes later.
                          A few hundred times later you're a pro.
