Threading Machine Opinions
Hi, I am looking for a new threaded.
We never had the need for one as we don't do a crazy amount of gas work. There was always a machine available at one of my friends companies which was nice because each job I got to test a different model out.
I am considering the Ridgid or Rothenberger machines. Generally we don't do over two inch pipe work however on occasion we do three or four inch for steam headers.
What's important is that the head is self oiling and that the jaw releases when the threading is complete.
Another not that important feature is the ability to tighten a fitting onto the pipe. I recall that this can only be done on the Ridgid line up.
Looking forward to opinions and recommendations.
