I should be preparing for my demo on Saturday but I wasn't in the mood tonight so I decided to practice thread chasing some more. I read somewhere long ago and reread again recently that PVC pipe is excellent for practicing threading. I didn't have any PVC but I had some ABS and figured I'd give that a try.
The 2 halves threaded together. They go together well until they're almost fully seated, then I think that the total surface area in contact gets quite large and it gets harder to turn. Wax may help this some but on a practice piece like this I'm not concerned.
