  • Threading with Ridgid F series vise

    Anyone here know if the pipe jaws on the Ridgid F series bench vises are suitable for manyal pipe threading (up to 1 1/2") ?

    Thanks.

    dan, an f series # f-45 can grip 3/8'' - 3'' pipe.
    f-50 can grip 1/2'' - 3.5'' pipe.
    and an f-60 can do 1/2''- 4'' pipe.
    good luck.

      Sure they "can" grip pipe -- but the question is "do they grip pipe tight enough for threading?"

      I've seen more than one vise along the way that had "pipe jaws" that didn't grip pipe worth a hoot.
