Robert Elliot is here to share a quick tip on how to create a nipple to finish a job!

  • Step 1: Create an extra-long thread.
  • Step 2: Take the same size coupling and put it on more than halfway.
  • Step 3: Thread your pre-cut size with the factory end (cut flat with a band saw to keep it from jamming) into your coupling
  • Step 4: Tighten everything down.
  • Step 5: Thread the other end.

Quick and easy. We hope this job tip helps you in the field!
