Steel Dragon Tools Rebar Cutters

Rebar

Rebar is one of the hidden materials of the construction world. It gets buried in concrete and quickly forgotten. But any concrete or masonry structure requires rebar and as a result, construction workers need to be able to cut the rebar to spec. There are several ways to cut rebar, including reciprocating saw, circular cutter and hand saw. Rebar cutters, both hydraulic and manual, will cut the rebar much quicker and more efficiently, saving construction companies valuable time on the work site.

 

Steel Dragon Tools manufacturers three types of rebar cutters; electric hydraulic, manual hydraulic, and manual. All three types are designed to quickly cut rebar and all three are portable and easy to use.

 

Electric Hydraulic Rebar Cutters

Steel Dragon Tools electric rebar cutters use an electric motor to drive a hydraulic pump. These machines come in three different cutting capacities. The RBC05 will cut 5/8-inch, #5 rebar. The RBC06 will cut 3/4-inch, #6 rebar. The RBC08 will cut 1-inch, #8 rebar. Each cutter will cut the specified size of rebar and below. All three offer a cutting speed of six seconds or less. These machines will cut construction rebar, deformed steel bar, round steel bar, and rebar rod. Each machine comes with a heavy-duty carrying case and tool kit. The tool kit includes wrenches, Allen wrenches, screw driver, and a one-time use hydraulic oil bottle.

 

Manual Hydraulic Rebar Cutter

The Steel Dragon Tools 22A manual hydraulic rebar cutter will cut up to 3/4-inch, #6 rebar. This cutter features a sturdy steel construction and comfortable rubber grips for ease of use. This cutter is ideal for smaller jobs that does not require a massive volume of cuts. The blades are made of forged steel and will cut construction rebar, deformed steel bar, round steel bar, and rebar rod.

 

Manual Rebar Cutter

The Steel Dragon Tools RBC625 is a manual rebar cutter and bender that will cut and bend 5/8-inch, #5 rebar. A 50-inch handles give the operator the leverage necessary to cut and bend the rebar. This cutter does not have a hydraulic pump. The RBC625 features mounting holes in the frame so that is may be secured to floor, allowing for easy, one-hand operation.

Reconditioned RIDGID® 535

RD-RF-535-V1_01

The Steel Dragon Tools Reconditioned RIDGID® 535 pipe threading machine will thread, ream, and cut 1/8-inch to 2-inch pipe. This machine will also thread 1/4-inch to 2-inch bolts.

 

Steel Dragon Tools is a leader in refurbishing used or broken pipe threading machines. Steel Dragon Tools knows that no matter how beaten a RIDGID machine may look, there is always some life left in them. The 535 hasn’t been the industry standard for 40-plus years based solely on looks alone. The 535 debuted in 1957 and has since gone through several design upgrades.

 

The 535 Version 1 pipe threading machine boasts the well-known, elongated design while the 535 Version 3 is a bit more compact with a stocky look. Both machines feature a powerful 1/2-horsepower, single phase motor capable of 36 RPM and both machines feature a foot pedal for hands-free operation.
RD-RF-535-V3-CRT_01

 

Steel Dragon Tools® Reconditioned RIDGID® 535 Pipe Threaders have been cleaned, repaired, and prepared for professional use. Each Steel Dragon Tools® Reconditioned RIDGID® machine is disassembled, degreased, cleaned, painted, and reassembled with new parts as needed to meet OEM specifications. All Steel Dragon Tools® Reconditioned RIDGID® machines run like new and feature a one (1) year warranty against manufacturer defects.

 

Packages are available with either the Version 1 or Version 3 design. All packages come with a new RIDGID® 811A die head and new RIDGID® alloy dies. The Version 1 machine is available with or without a compatible cart. Version 3 machine packages are available with an extra die head, extra dies, or a gallon of RIDGID® threading oil.

Comparing 4″ Pipe Threaders

SDT-1224-CRT_01

Steel Dragon Tools offers two models  of pipe threading machines that thread, cut and ream up to 4-inch pipe, rod, and bolts. The Steel Dragon Tools 1224 and the Steel Dragon Tools 6790 pipe threading machines both thread, cut, and ream a wide range of  black, galvanized, and plastic-coated pipe, as well as stainless steel, IMC, and heavy-wall conduit.  Both machines are equipped with a foot switch, reversible motor, and come with die heads and dies, and an optional stand.  The Steel Dragon Tools 6790 has a threading range of 1/2 in. to  4 in. The Steel Dragon Tools 1224 has a threading range of 1/4 in. to 4 in.

There are four major difference between the 1224 and the 6790:

 

1: The Steel Dragon Tools 1224 is compatible with universal RIDGID® brand dies, die heads, and jaw inserts.  RIDGID® or Steel Dragon Tools 711 and 714 die heads are interchangeable between the Steel Dragon Tools 1224 and the RIDGID® 1224 pipe threading machines. All universal dies will fit both die heads and machines. The Steel Dragon Tools 1224 comes with a Steel Dragon Tools 711 and Steel Dragon Tools 714 die head. The Steel Dragon Tools 6790 pipe threading machine also includes two die heads but the dies and die heads for the 6790 will only fit other compatible Steel Dragon Tools pipe threaders.

 
SDT-6790-CRT_01

2: The Steel Dragon Tools 1224 pipe threading machine is adjustable to thread both NPT (National Pipe Thread Tape) and  NPSM (National Pipe Straight Mechanical) threads.  The 6790 only threads NPT. The ability of the 1224 to thread both NPT and NPSM makes it an easy choice for electrical contractors who may have to do both.

 

3: The Steel Dragon Tools 6790 pipe threading machine has a two-speed transmission and 750-watt induction motor. The Steel Dragon Tools 1224 has a three-speed transmission and a 1,500-watt motor. The 1224 will handle 4-inch pipe threading much easier than the 6790 due to a larger motor motor and more-powerful transmission.

 

4: Price. The Steel Dragon Tools 1224 is considerably more expensive than the Steel Dragon Tools 6790. Both machines, however, cost significantly less than other machines built but name-brand competitors.

Steel Dragon Tools 819 Nipple Chuck

SDT-819_01The Steel Dragon Tools 819 is a nipple chuck adapter used to create pipe nipples on 1/2-inch to 2-inch pipe. The Steel Dragon Tools 819 can be used with both RIDGID® and Steel Dragon Tools pipe threading machines, including model numbers 300, both power drive and compact, as well as 535, 1882, and 1224.

 

The Steel Dragon Tools 819 package includes a nipple chuck wrench, adapter hanger for storage, standard insert and five adapters: 1/2 in., 3/4 in., 1 in., 1-1/4 in., and 1-1/2 in. The base itself serves as the 2-inch adapter.

 

To create a pipe nipple, install pipe into the threading machine and thread pipe as normal. Cut the pipe to the desired length. Install the Steel Dragon Tools 819 nipple adapter into the pipe threading machine and screw the threaded end of pipe into the adapter. Do not over-tighten the pipe into the nipple adapter. Hand tight will be sufficient. Once the pipe is secure in the adapter, thread it as normal.

 

It is important to make sure the initial thread is the correct dimensions. If the threads are over-sized or under-sized, the pipe may become lodged in the adapter. Removing a lodged pipe will require a pipe wrench and considerable force. Test the threads with a thread gauge or corresponding fitting to ensure the threads are dimensionally correct. A fitting should turn 1-1/2 to 2 turns on a properly threaded pipe.
SDT-819_05

 

Insert the plug end of the nipple chuck wrench into the holes in the adapter to release the tension spring inside the adapter. Unscrew the pipe from the adapter while relieving the tension. A pipe wrench may be required to unscrew the pipe from the adapter. The pipe can become lodged in the adapter if the threads are not dimensionally correct. The pipe will tighten by itself in the adapter during the threading process.

Dies from Steel Dragon Tools

Steel Dragon Tools manufactures high speed steel and alloy dies to meet or exceed industry specifications. These dies are compatible with Steel Dragon Tools pipe threading machines and can be used in compatible dies heads with other machine brands.

sdt-48250_02.5

 

Dies are an essential part of the pipe threading process. Sharp, well-made dies will ensure consistent, useable threads. Dies with dull or chipped teeth will result in poorly threaded pipe that will not seal properly. Replacing dies as they wear or chip is a necessity but it doesn’t have to break the bank.

 

Steel Dragon Tools dies are compatible with the specified Steel Dragon Tools pipe threaders and will fit certain other brands. Steel Dragon Tools dies will match the quality of comparable dies but for a fraction of the price. Steel Dragon Tools can offer dies for far less since there is no middle man. Steel Dragon Tools manufacturers the dies and then sells them directly to the customer. Buy an extra set of dies and never worry about chipping a tooth while on the job site.

 

Steel Dragon Tools manufactures dies for powered and manual pipe threading machines. Many of these dies can be used in compatible die heads from Wheeler Rex® and RIDGID® machines.
