  • Need help on I.D. of Ridgid Hand Ratchet Die Set

    Found used 1/2"-2" Ridgid pipe threader hand ratchet set on craigslist. Don't want to end up with "plastic dies". Need for steel. There is no case.
    Is there numbers on the dies or any way to tell if the set is for steel ?

    The plastic dies are so rare, if you found them by luck, I would buy them from you if the price is right.

    not sure if there are exposed I D marks on the dies. Should be some id on the flat side if you remove them.

    I have a 1" plastic die at the shop and would have to take a closer look.

    I dont believe the plastic even came in the smaller sizes 1/8". And 1/4".

    phoebe it is

      Called Ridgid very helpful. Plastic dies marked stenciled "pvc" on dies . Also said if they looked burned do not use. Also no way to tell if they are any good visually unless you see chip. Paid $400 for a 1/2" thru 2" ratchet set, a 4 wheel cutter. New condition. He has another set for $325
      Detroit craigslist "ridgid pipe" in search. Thanks Rick
