Making a Threaded Fitting

After looking for a threaded flange for the Thetford dump valve I ended up talking with one of Andy's Technicians. He said they build them when needed. It was a relatively easy chore.

Get a flat flange (weld in type)
A 3 inch ABS threaded nipple
Some ABS cement

Cut the nipple with saw, square it up, glue it...that is it.

You neglected to mention the all-important can of Labatt's in your materials list. Good thing you caught it in the photo!

Good eye!, I am surprised John did not mention my failing to list barley pop as a necessary ingredient.
