I was going through 1/2" pipe fittings this morning and found 4 of these. Can you spot the issue?

LOL Me neither! And to find 4 together is odd! Now to find the fittings for them! :wallbanging:

I have monkeyed around with power threaders a little. I dont think they will do that if you put the dies in backwards, it just makes them harder to start.

Me too! Has to be a program error on a CNC machine. Wait til I take the nipple into Lowes or Ace and ask for a matching fitting! That ought to be fun!

May just be the picture, but it also appears to be a "wavy" thread.

Those are " turnbuckle nipples". Any good hardware store should have them.  :D

Have you ever made a railing with pipe? How do you put it together?

The left hand side also appears to be cut at a shallower angle.

I just know I've never seen anything like this and to have 4 of the critters (2 different lengths) is odd!

I googled  them up and they are still made , used in natural gas fittings as a union when code forbids a regular union also used on cast iron radiators as unions.

Now all you need is a left hand pipe tap :D
