When you don?t have the right pipe fittings for the job, it means a trip back to the store and a delay in getting the work done. You can spare yourself that headache by stocking up on pipe fittings from Sears. We have steel, copper and brass fittings to fit every diameter of pipe. Straight and angled fittings give you the right one for each connection. If you?re working with standard PVC or black pipe, we have connectors in all diameters and shapes plus the glue to hold everything together. When you have a good supply of short lengths of pipe, fittings and bushings, you?ll save yourself the time and hassle of chasing parts.
Another common hassle is not having the right flared end for a pipe connection. Pipe flaring tools do the job in a hurry. Superior makes affordable pipe flaring tools for DIY property owners. They produce 45-degree flares in copper, brass and aluminum pipe from 3/16 in. to 5/8 in. Commercial-quality Ridgid flaring tools are built for contractors who flare pipe on a daily basis. They handle all common pipe materials including mild steel tubing. Both single and double laps can be produced in pipe sizes to 5/8 in. The single clamp screw holds the tubing securely in place while the flare is being made. A durable handle gives you needed leverage for forcing the tube over the flaring cone.
If you use threaded pipe, then pipe threading machines will prove useful. Steel Dragon makes several models that come with four die heads for threading pipe from 1/2 in. to 1 1/4 in. The tough ratchet handle and head allows you to thread pipe in just a few minutes. You might also find good use for the Steel Dragon hand-held pipe thread oiler that speeds up the threading process while keeping your threading heads sharp. Sexton universal thread gauges quickly tell you what size pipe you?re working with and which threading head you need. We carry other quality pipe threading machines from Bovidix and Rothenberger.
You won?t get much plumbing done without good pipe wrenches. We carry contractor-grade wrenches from Ivy Classic, Armstrong and Empire Tool. Steel pipe wrenches are affordable, and the added weight can help loosen tough connections. Aluminum pipe wrenches combine lighter weight with outstanding strength. Pipe wrenches are produced in various sizes to fit pipe up to two inches, so having a selection of them in your tool box will ensure you always have the right wrench for the job.
