i live in washington, dc where tradesmen apparently make more money than lawyers and doctors, at least according to their estimates.
i need to reposition some radiator 2" pipes and am looking into doing it myself as i refuse to be robbed (one guy asked me for $1,800 for one day of work !!!).
was wondering what i should know about using a pipe threader that i can rent from a plumbing supply store ? is it within the DIY domain ?
HD can also do the threading for me but i absolutely hate the idea of having to bring them accurate measurements (i HATE precise measuring - rough is okay) and having to buy and carry a new pipe if i made a mistake. i like having the tool/control and the flexibility of trial/error.
