Default Garden Hose End Re-thread Die

The male ends of many of my garden hoses have become somewhat chewed
up and I want to re-thread them properly. I have looked in my Mc
Master-Carr catalog under Die and GHT (Garden Hose Thread) but there
is no listing for the proper die .. either re-threading or primary. I
am sure that it is there under the proper size & pitch but I do not
know what that might be. Any and all help would be appreciated.

Save yourself the trouble. At some hardware stores & garden centers, I've
found plastic replacement ends that are very rugged. I don't recall the
brand name, but it's one of the makers of sprayers & other hose accessories.
Green plastic - easy to spot on peg hangers. You cut off the metal end, and
insert the replacement into the hose, which is a bitch unless you spit on it
or apply just a little silicone spray or something similar. Then, you attach
the supplied clamps around the outside of the hose. I've got 20 year old
hoses I've fixed this way and the threads are still in good shape.

Buy extras when you find them.

Yep, replace the ends. Before heading to the store be sure to know the
inside diameter of the hose - cut off the old end about an inch back and
take your measurement. For an easy and safe-for-hose- material lubricant
use some PAM (petroleum grease may breakdown the hose). Spit doesn't
stretch very far and you may find yourself with the new end halfway on and
stuc right there. Not fun.

Thanks for the two replies. I have quite a few of those replacement
ends .. both plastic and brass. HOWEVER !!! The internal surface of
my hoses are hexagonal in shape .. not circular. Regardless of what
type of repair product I use and regardless of how tight I clamp down
... they LEAK. I am 70 years of age and have been playing "repair the
hose" most of my life with great success. These hoses just do not
accept the repair "kits".

So, once again .. any idea of where I can get a re-threading die?

Hi,
Tried wrapping the repair fitting with some tapes and tighten with hose

The threads do not seal the hose, only the gasket inside.

If screwing them together is what is rough and difficult, wire brush the
male and female ends, them polish them with a little automobile wax.

If fresh gaskets do not seal the connections, you need new ends or a new
hose.

Here is a fairly accurate (but not completely) rundown of threads for
fuild connections

http://www.plumbingsupply.com/pipethreadsizing.html

this link has better (IMO) / overlapping descriptions

http://www.dent-mfg.com/threadsizes.htm

the problem lies in that not all pipe thread is tapered, some is
straight

garden hose thread is a slightly different animal (straight thread)
larger OD than 3/4 pipe AND coarser thread!

http://www.acehose.com/threadinfo.htm

even more thread info..............

http://www.gates.com/downloads/files...0die%20hose%22

To answer Norm's orignal question........

I struck out finding an "off the shelf" soultion

even at MSC.com (lot of special threads) I couldn't find it

you could give these guys a call, they might have it

www.victornet.com
1-800-723-5359

If you've just gotta have one.........you could have it custom made
http://www.tapcousa.com/default.asp

or
http://www.widell.com/ these guys had the GHT tap stock, but not the
die

Why do we always get the "HOWEVER" after the fact? For the cost of a new
die, you can buy a new 125 foot hose at WalMart with a 10 year gaurantee.

I believe you will find it far easier to install a new hose end. The
one shown at
http://www.125west.com/Claber_Lawn_Garden_Watering_Systems_Solid_Brass_wa ter_connector.html
is probably your best option as it does not require an external clamp to
hold it on the hose.

Your regional forest fire depot has a set and if you ask them really
nicely when there is nothing burning they will "chase" the threads for
you. Garden hose threads are used in mop up kits.

Garden hose threads are ANSI/ASME standard B1.20.7.

The designation is:

.75-11.5NH (cut, formed, or rolled), or
.75-11.5NHR (thin wall formed).

See _Machinery's Handbook_ 26th edition, pp 1841-2.

I can't seem to find any sources for taps or dies, either.

Even better yet, go to Sears and buy one of their 'Craftsman' logo life
time guarantee hoses. They're black, possibly real rubber, available in
if I recall correctly, 50 and 75 foot lengths, and have beefy for real
machined brass couplings... not the flimsy stamped sheet metal ones like
most hoses today.

Check the packaging and make sure it has the 'Craftsman' logo and
lifetime guarantee info on the packaging, as not all Sears hoses are
lifetime.

They initially cost a few of bucks more, but unless lost or stolen, will
be the last hose you buy. Sears is great about replacing worn
out/damaged hoses without question, no receipt required! Through the
years I've probably taken back 5 or 6 for various reasons... including
one the gardner damaged with his mower. (I outright told them the reason
for the damage to this one, and they still replaced it on the spot!)

The downside is they tend to rub what appears to be black oxidized
rubber material off into your hands once they get to be a a few years
old, but for the most part said material seems to flush off easy with
just a little water.

Hose tip... if you coil your hose up on the ground, and space
permitting, try laying it out in a figure '8' pattern. So stored, you
can pick up the end, and pull the out hose full length kink free! Just
keep the end from dropping through any of the figure eight end loops...

As noted, you're probably not going to find a die or tap for a garden
hose thread. The problem is, the male ends aren't cut threads anyway
on anything except perhaps the brass NPT/hose adapters--they're formed.
The female ends are so shallow that you would need a bottom tap and
probably couldn't reach but a portion of the first thread, anyway, even
if you had one.

The suggestion to simply clean up the surfaces seems best suggestion.
If there is some real roughness perhaps the wire brush on the grinder
might make it go a little quicker.

Actually, after I finished, I realized probably the easiest and best
solution for the male threads would be some fine emory cloth. Since
the male hose ends are formed, not cut anyway, they don't have sharp
bottoms and it's more than likely just some rough edges on the end and
the outer diameter from dragging exposed ends over concrete sidewalks,
etc., that is the culprit. (Of course, that brings up the "don't do
that!" mantra... )

The garden hose thread is considered a separate thread from pipe
thread, however, 1/2 inch pipe (or is it 3/4? can't remember for sure
right now and don't have one with me to look at) has the same thread
count and diameter is close enough. OTOH, the thread itself is
coarse enough that it isn't hard to do with a 3 corner file.

THANKS to all for your replies. I did locate a die at
www.tapcousa.com by using their 800 number and giving them the above
specs. They have two in stock which I left there since they wanted
$136.00 plus shipping to be relieved of one of them.

As someone mentioned, I can replace all my hoses for that amount.

I do have a standard pipe re-threading set and used its file with the
#12 grooves and it worked quite well but left a rough finish. I
smoothed it out a bit with the wire brush I use on my BBQ and it ended
up looking good. The problem I had before all this was that it would
not screw into my plastic quick-disconnects without serious binding.
All is well now helped a bit by silicone grease.

For those interested I did find an external threader (11.5) in the Mc
Master catalog but it was $89.00. A bit better than $136 but still a
bit expensive.

Again .. thanks to all.

No, those nominal NPT diameters are 14 tpi, not 11.5 tpi like the garden
hose.

1, 1-1/4, 1-1/2, and 2 inches NPT are 11.5 tpi, but much larger diameter.

And they're all tapered.

Norm-

Pretty cool / useful tool at McMaster

Replaceable Die External Thread Restorer 2630A12
Tool comes with dies for thread sizes 4, 5, 6, 7, 7 1/2, 8, 9, 10, 11,
11 1/2, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, and 24 threads per inch.
OD range is 1 1/4" to 5".

but even a tool junkie such as I wouldn't buy one but I could see the
need for such a tool where LOTS of hose were in use. One could chase /
clean up the ends faster & cheaper than replacing

cheers

Save yourself the trouble. At some hardware stores & garden centers, I've
found plastic replacement ends that are very rugged. I don't recall the
brand name, but it's one of the makers of sprayers & other hose accessories.
Green plastic - easy to spot on peg hangers. You cut off the metal end, and
insert the replacement into the hose, which is a bitch unless you spit on it
or apply just a little silicone spray or something similar. Then, you attach
the supplied clamps around the outside of the hose. I've got 20 year old
hoses I've fixed this way and the threads are still in good shape.

Buy extras when you find them.


Brand name is usually Gilmore. AND THEY ARE MADE N HE USA TOO not
China. Come from Pennsylvania, I thin.

I use a pour of cooking oil, (corn, canola, olive, whatever) to lube the
inside of he hose. Dip finger in il, liberally coat inside of ose, put
more oil n plastic barbed insert and isert.

Great product.

.75-11.5NHR (thin wall formed).

....

Pretty cool / useful tool at McMaster

Replaceable Die External Thread Restorer 2630A12
Tool comes with dies for thread sizes 4, 5, 6, 7, 7 1/2, 8, 9, 10, 11,
11 1/2, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, and 24 threads per inch.
OD range is 1 1/4" to 5".

but even a tool junkie such as I wouldn't buy one but I could see the
need for such a tool where LOTS of hose were in use. One could chase /
clean up the ends faster & cheaper than replacing


It would require a heck of a garden hose w/ 1-1/4" OD minimum!!!

But even if it went to the 3/4" OD, garden hose ends are still thin
wall formed, not cut and not as deep as pipe thread. An NPT die of the
same diameter would cut through or nearly through the root diameter of
a formed NH thread.

Several of my hoses ( the good ones) have heavy brass ends which are
cut and look just like pipe threads ... but the are not tapered.
These are the ones I wanted to re-thread.

Default Garden Hose End Re-thread Die

A few minutes with a handsaw file and you should be able to clean up
the threads pretty well. Most of these threads are rolled so finding a
die is gonna be hell.

I've never seen a garden hose w/ that style an end--have a bunch of the
NPT to NH brass adapters which are, but not on the hose itself. Wasn't
considering that possibility and didn't get that from the original post
(obviously )...

In that case, however, I can see the point and can understand them
getting munged up more than a regular garden hose. Guess there's no
free lunch, is there?

I do have a standard pipe re-threading set and used its file with the
#12 grooves and it worked quite well but left a rough finish. I
smoothed it out a bit with the wire brush I use on my BBQ and it ended
up looking good. The problem I had before all this was that it would
not screw into my plastic quick-disconnects without serious binding.
All is well now helped a bit by silicone grease.

HD & others make a brass cutoff valve for the hose end. If you use one
of them, it will not have to come off the hose - the adapter will take
all future punishment rather than the hose end itself.

Save yourself the trouble. At some hardware stores & garden centers, I've
found plastic replacement ends that are very rugged. I don't recall the
brand name, but it's one of the makers of sprayers & other hose
accessories. Green plastic - easy to spot on peg hangers. You cut off the
metal end, and insert the replacement into the hose, which is a bitch
unless you spit on it or apply just a little silicone spray or something
similar. Then, you attach the supplied clamps around the outside of the
hose. I've got 20 year old hoses I've fixed this way and the threads are
still in good shape.

Buy extras when you find them.


Yep, replace the ends. Before heading to the store be sure to know the
inside diameter of the hose - cut off the old end about an inch back and
take your measurement. For an easy and safe-for-hose- material lubricant
use some PAM (petroleum grease may breakdown the hose). Spit doesn't
stretch very far and you may find yourself with the new end halfway on and
stuc right there. Not fun.


I just dip the end in boiling water for about 30 seconds. They push
right on that way.

This is an old thread, but we may have found the real answer, finally:

http://www.chasertool.com/ for $12

Since I got here by googling for just this sort of thing, maybe this will help someone else.

If you get an odd number, add one and divide by two.

You're message wont open either. Next time, use a computer instead of

Thanks for the reply, but the original poster no longer needs a garden
hose. In the nursing home he has an unlimited supply of catheters.

Wouldn't be surprised if the die costs more that a new hose section...
