Teflon Taping Method
Posted by Jeff Decker on May 30, 2001 at 10:15:28:
When using teflon tape on a taper thread, in what direction should the tape be applied to create the best lubrication and seal? And please don't just say clockwise or counterclock wise as this can mean 2 different directions depending on which way you are looking at the thread.

ie. does it go with the thread, against the thread, do you start from the small end of the thread or the large end?

Thanks for the help.
