I hope you have a vise with pipe jaws, or a tri-stand. 1-1/2" is a big thread to be cutting my hand. Have refreshments on standby

Yeah, id imagine its a bastard to get them started. Think about the downward pressure u need to start a 1/2-13 die, this one is 3 times the size. I think holding the pipe while cutting it woudl also be a challenge if you dont havea vidse around. Maybe just measure ur lengths and have home desperate cut and thread them... they do it for free here.

Yeah, its jsut getting it to actually dig in that is the difficult part. Can you chamfer the pipe though? wont it get a little thin considering the size and depth of the threads?

Rent a powered one. You won't be sorry. No reason to own something like that unless you do it day in, day out. I did all new gas lines in my house over a weekend. Use plenty of cutting oil.

For your airline HD will thread for free.

please be careful if you rent an electric threader!!

i know a bunch of plumbers and pipefitters i used to work that lost fingers and portions of fingers with those things. just takes a second to get your glove caught up, and when you turn the machine off it takes a little time for the cutting head to stop turning.
