Beaver Pipe threader

Options

I was looking at buying a threader to do larger piping and found a Beaver 41E. I was wondering if it has adjustable dies or if it requires different dies for different sizes and if dies are still avalable? I was looking for a ridgid 141 but no luck. I bought a ridgid 4pj but realized that i needed to buy several dies and was a poor purchase. I cant find any info on the beaver but figured somebody here could give me some info. Thanks Dan

    several dies needed

    they use a separate head for each size. Parts no longer made for them except custom made. Try craigslist or ebay. Northern hydraulics has a Chinese made threader for cheap that will go to 4". You get what you pay for though. I vote for the rigid.
    Cost is what you spend , value is what you get.

    Ridgid 141

    If you're in the SF Bay Area, I'll rent you mine. I bought it at an auction 20 years ago and have used it only a handful of times.  A life saver when you need it.

    Two btu per sq ft for degree difference for a slab
