T-drills, haven't used one of those for a while. I guess pro-press killed that tool for the most part.
"When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)
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.
