...but more annoying to machine, and slightly less durable.

To be honest the wall thickness is excessive, even if you're looking to use this at 1000 psi 21-25mm diameter would be more than enough.

The loom is inside a silk mill so I consider everything I do there to be milling, whether sitting at the loom or using the ladies' room ;)

*knock knock*

"Are you still milling in there Gladys?"

*strain*

"Yeeeeesssss"

:roll: :D

This isn't actually a part, but I do have a question about machining.

wikipedia says that for a 1/4" pipe size, the OD of the pipe needs to be 0.54". If my pipe is 0.59" OD, will I still be able to externally thread it or will I need to sand it down?

I could also do pipe size 1/8" (I'd rather do 1/4"), for that it's supposed to be 0.405" and I can get 0.39". Would that work better?

.05" of a difference, you should be ok. Use a good cutting lube. What kind of thread cutter are you using? A die would be the most trouble with the size difference.

I'm actually hoping not to thread it myself, there's a place Fastenal right near my dance studio that I'm hoping will be able to thread it for me (though it would be nice to do it myself, I don't have the equipment to do it i think...)

If a die would be the most trouble, what other ways are there? Is there a way I can thread it with the tools I have at home? (Standard stuff)

Google pipe threaders, manual and power. A metal lathe can also be used, but takes set up time to do it right.

You never mentioned your budget...did you? Hardware stores and or a plumber, any place that works with or installs pipe should have a threader to do the job. Can't say what they charge you but shouldn't be much. What kind of shop is Fastenal?

Very true :P

The signs on the outside say it's a machine shop, so I assumed it would be able to thread pipe. If they can't, there's a Home Depot close by too.

Home Chepot's have pipe threaders around my way, your local store should have it as well. The machine shop will charge you set up time...
