In response to Re: Teflon Taping Method

: 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? Jeff

Jeff,
I start with the small end of the thread and wind it back toward the main section of the pipe.
Don't allow any tape to hange over the end of the pipe.
Terry
