    NPT is National Pipe Thread, NSPT is National Straight Pipe Thread.

    I sent a carpenter down to the shop to get some 2-inch pipe threaded on the machine. I forgot that we own some straight thread dies in 1-1/2 and 2-inch NSPT. We use straight thread on lookout handrails, built from 1957 to 1961, when industrial railing was first specified.

    Any way, the Carpenter thought NSPT would mean National Standard Pipe Thread. And, made up a bunch of runs with that thread. Project took an extra day.

    Ken, why does your listing show you from USA, but your IP address confirms you are from Punjab, Pakistan. You wouldn't be trying to toss in some spam onto us, would you?

    Everyone is welcome, but spam or redirects are not. Your choice. Welcome aboard.

    I think VPN's are becoming more common.
    I use one occasionally but have it set for NY.
