        If I threaded a piece of pipe all the way without turning it end for end and backed the die off and cut the end off the rest of the unthreaded portion with a hacksaw ,would either end thread into a fitting properly?Sounds crazy ,but I need an all thread nipple so I can run a jam nut onit to hold a lab fixture down soild on a counter top

          Bozo. In Australia we call a pipe with a thread the entire lenght on the outside a “Long thread” or “Allthread” & we use a “back nut”.
          These items can be procured from any Plumbing supplier.
