« on: June 14, 2022, 12:37:41 PM »
This one fits pipe thread made by Jaw m.f.g. co. Reading. Pa. #2 it does 8 different threads 8 10 12 16 20 27 28 32 just wondering if anyone else in here has used them I know mine is ancient but still works ok I had to do a 2 inch sewer pipe thread  today where the pipe 6 inch nipple went in wall couldn't get out to put in new plugs scared of threads breaking off in side of wall lol so re-did threads with this tool I had not sure if the right tool to use but it worked.

Still sold as a thread file.   A tool that pays for itself over and over.

Jawco is good people to deal with, too.   bought a set of thread files from them a long time ago and they were priced fair and made well.

I use mine (from my uncle) nowandagain; there are times when it's the only right tool.

Thread files were used during WW2. Here is one I’ve found.
