Anyone installing or replacing lengths of small diameter (1/4 to 1- inch) pipe knows the need to thread the pipe so various couplings, caps, elbows, flanges and other fittings can be added as well. Unless, of course, you want to pay someone else to do all this for you (expensive and unprofitable, if you’re doing this professionally). But, threading pipes is simple if you have the right tool.
The right tool, in this case, is the pipe threader, pictured below. This pipe threader lets you thread pipes from 1/4-inch to 1-inch diameter, leaving perfect threads every time, so you can add all your needed fittings. Add a pipe threader now to your shop’s tool inventory and be prepared for your next piping job.
