Topic tags/keywords: pipe clamps clamp

Hi You All,

I have bougt some Bessey pipeclamps type H 3/4. So I can use 3/4 galvanized pipe (inner diameter). How do I connect the pipe to the clamp (the one with the crankshaft). Do I need to thread the pipe and what measure threading is needed? Or do I force the pipe in by hand and turn it as far as possible? Or is there a better way to do this? Furhter, can you change the pipelenghts ( sometimes I need a length of 1,20 meter, the other times only 60 cm). Please helpe me, you experienced lumberjocks.

It is best to have the pipe threaded on BOTH ends. One end has to be threaded to allow the
“crank end” of the clamp to mount to the pipe. By threading the other end, you can use collars or junctions to add pieces of pipe together. Take the pipe you bought to a plumber and have them thread it for you.

Black pipe is better .Over time the galvanisation scraps off and the Clamps slip. It’s best to thread both ends so you can join more than one clamp together to extend the length with couplers.
