No you have to buy the die... I would use a plastic hose and a tightened hoseclamp instead of threading the torch head...

you should read your threads before you post them, and make sure they are as understandable as possible, because you don't want to confuse the people trying to answer your questions.

I'm going to revise your question to so that the word usage makes more sense;
"can I get a propane blowtorch threaded at home depot?"
the obvious answer is no, home depot is a store which sells products, they don't provide machining services.
I honestly hope that is not what you intended to ask, because honestly that's a stupid question. So please put more effort in phrasing your questions, especially since your post was only one sentence long

What I think what you meant to ask is "Can I buy a threaded propane tank adapter from a local hardware store"
my answer would be: you'd probably only find adapters for larger propane tanks rather than smaller ones that spudders typically use

THERE'S A TUTORIAL!!








The threads on the adapter are called compression threads. 1/4" to be exact. If you don't want to find the tutorial and do that, you can always just get a compression x npt adapter and use it.

MrCrowley, you should help the new member find what your talking about because you know how the search is here...his head will explode once he see's all that the search will bring up.

After all, we don't want to lose a new member due to exploding head :P :roll:

According to others, that would be one heck of an explosion.

Okay, I'm done.

And just so I don't "feel the wraith"...

With double accounts and probably close to 6 combined new topics this member has created for both accounts, I feel no sympathy or need to help him out. In all his topics he has failed to do any research whatsoever, none. He expects members to spoonfeed him and I'm not in the mood to do that.

Oh and here's another topic where he asks the same question. You'll notice that when someone doesn't answer his question, he makes a new topic and asks it again or he makes a new accont:
http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/viewtop ... tml#278819

bighead,
Go here:
http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/search.html

Type in "torch adapter"
Select "Search for all terms"
Select "How-To Database" as the forum to search in

Click "Search".

I believe you will find the topic Hubb just linked.
