Threading question

Unread postAuthor: Demon » Fri Nov 06, 2009 4:01 pm

I just have little question here;

Can i get a 3 inches long, 1/2 plumbing pipe threaded female at one end and male at the other one?

My rona has a threading machine but i dont know if they can do this.

Thanks for answers.

If it is to be done in this manner, you will have to flare the female end so that it will mate with a male end. As c11man said, just get a female adapter. It would probably be cheaper than paying someone to thread the interior of the pipe anyway.

Use a close nipple and a female to female coupler. The close nipple is the shortest available. It is threaded to where the threads are right up against each other back to back.

You said it needed to be 3" long. That should be PLENTY of space to do the ol' "pipe nipple into pipe coupler" stunt.

I have a little new question here;

Can i thread a metal rod(that is the exact size of the real plumbing pipe) to like 3/4" but all the way on 3 inches ?

Without that cone shaped thread that makes fitings stuck together?

With a threading machine.

Please tell me if you know.

Huh?

I've read that 3 times now and I still have no idea what you're trying to do.

It would be making a threaded tit of 3/4 inch, but with a steal rod(i mean a plumbing pipe but not hollow), so i would be getting a tit, like a plumbing pipe one would, but not hollow, it would be full of steel.

Little paint here;


(i need that to then, after drill holes of right size in it)



Can it be made(with a threading machine) ?

if you're asking if it's possible to thread a rod then the answer is yes

'cone shaped' threads are called tappered threads

NPT is tapered (also notice the spelling I made a typo in my last post)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_pipe_thread

so it's best if you use BSPP
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_st ... ipe_thread

but you might as well use NPT... you might experience some problems with sealing it if you thread it all the way but it should mate

Here is a good explanation and charts to show the thread differences for:
NPT, NPS, BSPT BSPP
