#1 rule of thumb pipe threads... When threading pipe a good way to test your threads is to put a fitting on hand tight. Then back if off ,and count the turns. You want about 3 1/2 turns + or - a 1/2 turn.for std black sch 40. for harder pipe like stainless pipe go 4, for softer pipe like galvanize pipe go closer to 3. this is a good rule of thumb for 1'' to 2'' pipe.
