    Ridgid 535 threader problem

    I am having a problem making good LH threads on my threader. I am able to get good RH threads though. The problem with doing LH is the thread pitch changes after about 1" into the cut. Can anyone give some help here. I have already tried a brand new set of dies, but had same results.
    Tahnks.

    Thanks Rick.
    I'll take a look at the die head.
    If that doesn't check out I'll post it in the plumbing forum.

    to cut left hand threads require a special die head.
    a #842 or mj-1 are designed for left hand threads. check your die head for this.

    one more note. if you post this in the plumbing forum, you will get much more input.
