In response to Re: Thanks!!!
: I just wanted to thank Bud and hj for their help with my natural gas line problem. I called basically everyone in the yellow pages and nobody could help me. With the info I got from this board I was able to track down the correct tools to do the job safely.
: My original post was

: For those that are interested I was to do this by removing the valve and inserting the Jet-Sweat and then I cut the pipe behind the stopper for the Jet-Sweat. I made several cuts (moving the Jet-Sweat forward)in order to remove the length of pipe that I needed. When I was done cutting, I put the end of the Jet-Sweat through the center of the ratcheting pipe threader and threaded the end of the pipe. I put a new valve on and I was done. I praticed this process several time on a spare piece of pipe before I did it "live". I ended up purchasing the following tools to do this job:
: - Ridgid 42A 4 wheel pipe cutter
: - Ridgid 12-R ratching pipe threader (w/ 3/4" die)
: - Jet-Sweat 3/4"
: total ~$300

: Since I was working with live line I was extremely careful about sparks and proper ventillation.

: Thanks Again,
: Michael
