|In response to Re: threading galvanized pipe|
Three possibilities. First it caught once and "stripped" so you already have a beveled end that needs more pressure to get the die to catch. Second, it was cut with something that left a burr and you also have to push harder to get the die to mill it off. Third, you just have to push harder to make it catch.
: We have rented a hand held ratchet type pipe threader and want to put a thread on the cut end of a 1/2 inch galvanized pipe that is still part of the supply system (still attached) why can't we get the threader to "catch" and start to thread the pipe? Thanks!
