What is the secret to cutting pipe threads in black iron pipe? I am doing it manually and using lots of cutting thread oil. I am having quite a few of the threads being damaged or being broken off as I reverse the cutter. This is being used for propane so I want the threads to be correct. I can borrow an electric Model 600 Rigid to do the job. Are they better for the job or am I better off doing them by hand. I have a feeling the cutter I used was dull to cut the threads. How does one tell? I have enough pipe to do, that the Model 600 would make it a lot easier. Is there something that I should know using it sucessfully?
No announcement yet.
