      T-drills, haven't used one of those for a while. I guess pro-press killed that tool for the most part.

          T drills are a money and labor saver. Especially when you price out the cost of a 6" x 2" tee and the labor to solder all 3 joints compared to brazing just the 2" pulled tee. Back in the 80s and early 90s, when I was doing large new construction the t drill paid for itself the very first day. we had ours converted to accept 6" pipe from the standard 4" capacity.But you're right, I haven't seen too many new jobs with pulled tee's. Still sitting on 3 T drills.

            The labor to solder a big tee (and the cost) or the cost of a Press tee, both options are much more expensive than a t drill. It's been awhile for me as well.

              I pulled out he oxy/acetylene yesterday as well. One of my guys needed to cut in some roof drains in a pan deck. His idea was a mini grinder. I said, "Lets burn them in".
