So we have this old galvanized piping that will be replaced but we need to put the on off valve back on in the mean time to allow the rest of the house to have water. It just won鈥檛 turn and catch the threads 馃槨! We even cut the uneven end and it still won鈥檛 go. Pictures of the one we can鈥檛 get the piece on and the other that has the valve on.

How much was cut off? Pipe threads are tapered. If you cut too much off, the diameter will be too large to accept the valve. In that case, the pipe end will need to be recut with the proper size die.

Maybe one thread length, so not much. It had a small spot that was broken on it so we just used the pipe cutter to cut the very end.
