  • "How it's made"

    I was just watching the show and saw how they make copper fittings. A quick search on youtube and I found the same episode....

    Interesting. I once got a 3/4 ell that one end had not been cut off as
    they show in the video. Now I can see what happened, somehow it
    got past that step in the process without the closed end being cut off
    and swaged by the machine.

          Always been in awe of the men who have the creativity to design the production machinery.

          That video was great!

            I sometimes wonder - if there was some kind of catastrophic event, would we know how to rebuild the machinery that actually makes all the stuff we use everyday?

              Hasn't that already happened, no one seems to agree on how they built the pyramids.

                interesting that they also had press fittings on display. but never showed them being made. if it's the same process and same equipment, then they must have realized that the longer sweep and thicker wall is what's needed and has been lacking for decades in normal sweet fittings.

                  If that was true, they would change the sweep on all fittings. right?

                    wrong. they do make longer sweep fittings, but the price of them is much greater than the standard sweep / no sweep 90's we see today.

                    go into a supply house and see if they stock the longer sweep 90's for water. not dwv. then compare the prices.

                    just put a propress 90 up against a regular 90. put them on a scale too and there is no comparison.
