This is a nice antique set of pipe thread cutting dies, including the threader head, interchangeable and adjustable die holder, and it includes 9 sets of adjustable dies (one set in the head) including 1/8"-27NPT, 1/4"-18 R.N.P.T, 3/8"-16 R.N.P.T, 3/8”R, 1/2&quot-14 R.N.P.T, 1/2”L, 3/4”-14 R.N.P.T, 1”-11-1/2 NPT, & 1” R.N.P.T dies, and more. All the inserts are marked “ARMSTRONG” except one of the 1” size is made by Reed, a company that continued manufacturing these dies for REED and ARMSTRONG threading die sets. This set also includes the adjustment wrench marked "ARMSTRONG NO.2". Also included is two pipe handles for the threader (each are 18" long). These die inserts are in good condition, but show some minor wear, useable for cutting threads or re-threading. The threader head is marked "ARMSTRONG BRIDGEPORT CT. MADE IN U.S.A. 160A" and is in very good condition, no rust, clean, a very nice quality casting, but has no paint intact. The dies have good thread leads and cutting areas, but they show there age and show signs of being a bit brital as there are small chips off most of them, still useable, the chips are mostly on the back end or on the opposite side of the lead threads. These are the adjustable size type dies, that will allow the user to vary the size by about 1/32" to fit pipe to close tolerances. The threading head is of the improved type with an adjustable shutter like diameter guide on the other side of the thread inserts. The older design had non-adjustable inserts that had to be attached based on the size of the inserts used in the head. The adjustable guide is much quicker and easy to use, work great. The threader casting alone is 10" long overall without the handles, they are 18" long overall each, all in very good shape, good threads. A nice old, set F. Armstrong Mfg. Co. was in business from 1875-1922 according to research. A rarely seen example of their quality small size pipe threading set!
