They actually sent me a flyer about that tool. But I do'nt think its actually made by Rem. I am pumped about this tool.

I remember talking fondly about the tool.

    Bought a new tool

    Have been thinking about buying this tool for about two years. I check it out at the trade show every year, and decided now is the time. I asked about Rem and remembered that HR gave them a good revue !!

    This baby is 14.7 lbs, and will do from 1/2" to 2" threads. They sent us a free can of their water soluble threading oil. If its works it could be very neat.

    Just got it, so hav'nt had a chance to try it yet, but its looks like its going to be fun.

    Yes

    It was right next to a WM boiler. :)

    It was $1205.00, Mike.

    This baby has some torque, it jumps in your hand when you start it. The boys and I can't wait to try it. I was going for the smaller version, only 7 lbs, dos 1/2" TO 1 1/4", but the rep said it did'nt do 1" and 1 1/4" that well. So we got the big ( relitive term, ask my wife ) bad boy.

    I thought you Mainers did everything by hand?

    At 14lbs., you can pass it around at your party!

    I have used the Rigid 700 hand threader, with the Rigid you have to be careful when threading 1-1/2 - 2" on a tri-pod vice it can flip very easily.Chris

    New Tool

    I bought one of those at my first national trade show 17 years ago. the spray lubricant works well and a can lasts quite a while. Now you need the cutoff saw to go with it JJ

    You will love it

    Two inch threads are a bit tough on it. The oil works fine. Unusual smell, designed to be safe for potable water line threads, I've heard.

    Rems has a bunch of unique tools. I hope to obtain some more soon. The simple, light weight all thread shear was interesting. A miniture rebar cutter looking tool with protection for the threads.

    Will...

    ...the threaded rod cutter do stainless steel? We do work in a couple of places that require SS rod. It's a pain to cut in a chop saw or with mini-grinder, then grind the burrs off. If we could cut 3/8" and 1/2" rod in their unit, that would save a LOT of time.
