Reconditioning Pipe Threaders – The Process Part 1

The process starts when Steel Dragon Tools buys a used pipe threading machine. Steel Dragon Tools will buy a variety of models as well as the accessories. For more information on selling a used pipe threading machine, please click here.


Steel Dragon Tools actively seeks out used or broken machines for repair. Shop manager David Krell searches Craigslist, eBay, and other internet forums and classifieds to find these used machines. Steel Dragon Tools can arrange for shipping. After working out a deal with the seller, these machines are brought into the shop to be refurbished.

The used machines are brought into the shop and disassembled. All pieces are examined to determine condition. Parts in poor condition will be replaced to ensure safety and effective operation. All wear items, including motor field, brushes, and armatures, as well as gears, bearings, and power cord will be inspected and replaced as needed.
