I'd like to buy a pipe threader for 1/2" galv pipe. I see many
pipe-threaders on-line from $25 to $50 from retailers such as
Harbor-Freight, Grizzly and lesser know shops. Most appear similar or

about these retailers. The name brand threaders are considerably more
$. Does anyone have experience with these inexpensive devices?
I have the harbor freight ones. I used it do my gas installation, 1" was the
Blades are soft and go away pretty fast, buy extras depending on the amount
your planning on doing. Use a good quality oil and keep it clean. Lots of

This is the best argument anyone could make for not wasting your money on junk.
Get the Ridgid tools you need. They really aren't that pricey considering the

out easily and you never know what result you will get. I have a couple
Rigid threaders that I bought at least 15 years ago that still cut properly
and they still have the original cutting dies.
