If I remember correctly an old electrician once told me that rigid conduit uses straight pipe thread for it's fittings.

Yep electrical conduit does use straight pipe thread. The conduit ends must but against each other.

Also, British pipe thread comes in straight and tapered varieties. Unfortunately, I work on a lot of European equipment that uses the straight pipe thread.

Hello old coot,

I am happy to hear you got the plug out and thanks fer the Irwin model number, (another new tool for the truck tool box). I wanted to add another thought for anyone perusing this topic...I have found if you have to heat something that is stuck, immediately take a candle and put it to the area after pulling the flame away. The wax will wick into the threads and lubricate them. I have used this method numerous times with great success.
