  • THREADED IRON PIPE


  • #2
    Why the 12" minimum length on what can be cut and threaded in the field?

    I have frequently done smaller than that length.
    I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night.
    Now I can Plumb!

    Did you know some Redwood Pipe is still in service today.

      rigid machines make a nipple chuck for less than 12 inch nipples.

        Yes that is correct and what I would use for short length work.
        I haven't checked how short I can thread before I have to use the nipple chuck on my machine but I do know it is quite a bit smaller than 12"

        I was just wondering why Lazypup would say the minimum length that could be threaded in the field is 12"

          all rigid machines have a nipple chuck which will thread close nipples so your thread isn't anything new. thanks anyway.

            The rigid machines do not come with a nipple chuck. You order each piece
            you want to make up the machine you want. The popular Rigid 300 like i have
            will thread nipples down to 5-1/2" long. Paul
