I picked this up to make a industrial looking shelf like in a home improvement show I watched. The piece is great quality and the threads came well protected. The project got postponed due to some emergency repairs that came up. The outside diameter Is 13/16. I like that they are light weight but feel very strong. I look forward to getting back to making the shelves.

I don't see this pipe as pipe , I see it as a part for a pony pipe clamp. I'm a carpenter and clamping wood component together always is a challenge. Different jobs require different sizes when clamping parts together. I use pony clamps, they use threaded pipe with fittings attached to each end. Photos will explain. The persistent problem is today I only need a clamp That's 5 inches long. But tomorrow I need a clamp 4 foot long. The clamp fittings will close all the way down to 0 inches and open to the full length of the pipe. So if I have a 6 foot length of pipe but I am clamping a 6inch part I have 5 feet plus of pipe too much. My solution, shorter pieces of pipes flitted together.

The Plumbers Choice, 2 in. x 72 in. black steel pipe is a convenient and cost effective way to get an exact dimensional pipe for any plumbing or home project. They are available in standard sizes from 1/4 inch up to 2 inches in diameter and in lengths 18, 24, 30, 36, 48, 60 and 72 inches long. This is a heavy and thick schedule 40 pipe. The pipes are shipped with plastic end caps to protect the threads from damage. These different sizes and lengths make it easier to do an instillation without having to pay for a plumber to cut and thread the pipes. I do not like to use black pipe for water but I have used it to make household projects, gas hookups and an air feed line from my compressor to the shop. This pipe will be used to finish a new fuel oil tank install in my garage and with a few couplers and elbows the job should be fairly easy. There is a one year warranty on the pipe.

This The Plumber's Choice 2 in. x 72 in. Black Steel Pipe is a serious hunk of pipe! I suppose the most common use for it would be in commercial gas applications. For that, I would imagine it would be perfect. However, I needed it to use as a breaker-bar and pry-bar, and for those purposes, it is also great! It is very heavy duty steel, so its not going to bend or break for almost anything you can imagine. I cannot begin to tell you how many times I wished that I had a breaker bar like this! At 6 feet long, it will give you some serious leverage. Because of what it is, it doesn't ship boxed, just wrapped in clear plastic wrapping, as you can see in my photos. So, if you are going to use it for gas pipe, I would suggest having it shipped to your nearest Home Depot store, where you can inspect the threaded ends before taking it home, because I could see the threads getting damaged in shipping. Mine arrived just fine, so its just a suggestion. Thanks The Plumber's Choice, and Home Depot!

Just wanted to write a review on how i use the 3/4" black pipe. Its a little different than normal. I use them as clamps. By adding clamp heads i can have a very strong clamp of different sizes for the project i am working on. And by adding a union the sizes can be as big as i need. The quality os very good and strong. They stay straight even under clamping pressure. I added a short video to show how i add the clamp heads. You can use the galvanized pipe too.

I'm a real estate investor and I live in a very rural area of upstate New York. Finding competent companies to complete the assorted tasks that arise is difficult so we end up doing most of the work ourselves. I ordered an assortment of sizes of these black pipes to supplement the stock that I keep on hand. These schedule 40 pipes, (the schedule number denotes the wall thickness which will vary with the outside diameter of the pipe), work well for all residential and commercial gas and air applications. They're also useful for DIY projects like building industrial furniture, shelving etc. These arrived well package with nicely cut threads, thread protector caps and a light oil coating. The Plumber’s Choice honors all warranties for one year on all of their products and as with most products Home Depot sells there is a 90 day return policy.

Good product – straight – good threads. Good value, black pipe is generally the least expensive. The diameter of the pipe is 0.846 which is .006 over the spec for schedule 40 half inch steel pipe. 0.840 is the spec for the schedule 40 pipe. The length is 60 1/16 for this pipe The plastic end caps are nice in that they keep the pipe threads nice and clean before you use them. Black steel pipe generally is used to carry gas, where Galvanized pipe is generally used to carry water. Alternative uses of Steel pipe include clamps, furniture, and as tools. Here we see an alternative use for the pipe as a pipe clamp.
