Well let me give a few more details since the capabilities of my only camera (phone) are pretty limited. The side that looks threaded is, in fact threaded. But not to NPT standards. I screwed a 1.5" pipe cap on until the pipe hit the inside of the cap. It was screwed in all it could go, and I could still "wobble" the cap. Also the threads look like he took it out back and kicked it around in the parking lot a few times.

Now for the real treat. The other side looks like it doesn't have any threads on it. But it does. Threads like no man has seen before. I dug around at work for a tap with a thread pitch close to that, just to see what it might be. Its almost 32 threads per inch. Incredible. A machine designed to thread only standard pipe fittings had produced a magical fine thread/crap thread nipple. Revolutionary, some might say.

What I think happened is he cut it twice with the same die and just got lucky that the second pass fell in between his first. I actually have this jewel on display in my room.

Man, this thread is depressing. I just don't understand how someone could try to pass that off as an acceptable threading job.

Did the guy (kid?) look "special"?

People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.

I think the employee should be held responsiable for the job he or she has done. Just in case the costomer was hurt do to the $hity job they did.
If I were you, I would take back the pipe and show the supervisor and get a refund or somthing. It cant hurt to try.

Stupid quote of the now:
joestue "The chamber is rated to 100 psi, it don't say that on the side, but the 2 inch stuff is rated to 300, so by analogy..."
"only the last two feet hear the end is black cellular core"
"I'm taking it to 300 psi"

Haha he seemed almost normal to tell you the truth. But from now on, I look at all their employees with new eyes...
