How to: Roll a Groove in a Pipe Using RIDGID

Fire sprinkler engineers, among others, need to create a lot of mechanical joints in metal pipe. This allows them to connect the pipe work together than feeds high pressure water into a sprinkler system.

In order to fit themechanicaljoints, the engineers need to roll groove the pipes, so we asked Mike from RIDGID to demonstrate how to make roll groove a pipe using two tools from RIDGID:

  • RIDGID 300 compact threading machine, capable of handling 1/8" - 2" pipe (that's 3mm - 50mm in new money), driven by a 38rpm spindle attached to a 1/2 HP motor
  • RIDGID 916 roll groover

A couple of points worth remember from the video;

- pull the pipe back towards you and run the motor of the 300 compact threader in reverse

- use a foot switch!
