  • Pipe Requirements - bit'o humor

    Making parts for somebody. Been after the person for three weeks to come up with the specs for one of the parts in the assembly so I can finish design and programming.

    Finally got the specs for the missing part - a 1" diameter pipe with 1/2" thick walls.

    What's the tolerance on the OD and wall thickness?

      Generally speaking

      The inside diameter of the pipe should not exceed the outside diameter, otherwise the hole will be on the outside !

        I've got 10 foot length of that pipe if you need it. You can have it for scrap price and shipping. So there are no surprises, the hole is plugged up and you'll have to clean it out!

        Thank you to our families of soldiers, many of whom have given so much more then the rest of us for the Freedom we enjoy.

        It is true, there is nothing free about freedom, don't be so quick to give it away.

          i don't get it - i know pipe and tube sizes are historically based, but in general reference don't peeps usually mean the id when they talk pipe and od when they talk tube?

              I think Mcgyver's right on that one - I've always heard that tube sizes refer to the OD and pipe sizes generally refer to something close to the stated ID - so this would have about a 1" hole and be about 2" OD.

                to clarify, he was talking 1"OD. Come to find out, he was looking for 1/4 inch wall, but the "two little marks" on my 1/8 scales cornfused him - no, he is NOT a student of mine.....

                    I think most engineers would benifit from reading the complete specification for pipes here.
