I ordered about 2 dozen of these Boshart black nipples for a domestic boiler installation. most were fine but 2 or 3 were machined incorrectly...the threads were not perpendicular to the center line of the pipe, thus throwing off the piping run.
I would suggest ordering a few spares, just in case.

Comments about 1/4" x 8" Black Nipple:

I make industrial iron pipe lamps, bookcases, bathroom fixtures, etc. out of 1/4 & 1/2 inch black steel pipe. It had been difficult to fide 1/4" black steel pipes and fittings until found your web site. The products and prices are good and the service was great. You HAVE my business and Thanks. I will be ordering again soon.

Comments about 3/4" x 10" Black Nipple:

I used these pipes to make brackets for wooden shelves. I loved that they were already black. However, a few of the pipes were not perfected straight so they kind of stick out of the wall at an angle. But great price!

Comments about 3/4" x 12" Black Nipple:

I use these for black pipe furniture projects and they have worked great for me. They are straight and true and the threads have all been burr free and with no problems screwing them into other fittings. The only drawback is the coating used for shipping purposes, it is a blackish coating of some type of greasy substance. I use a de-greaser to remove it. Your hands will be black.

I used these pipes and fittings when I made myself a bookshelf. I am not a plumber, had no idea about pipes and fittings before I got in to my project. I am so happy I found this website because I got everything I needed for a super low price compared to other retail stores and online. and I received it all within a week of ordering. super super happy :)

Comments about 1" x 10" Black Nipple:

Price, quality and shipping always the best. I use these pipes and fittings to build industrial home furnishings (shelves, tables, etc.) and I have yet to find a better source for the price. I buy in large quantity and never is there a nipple or fitting that is unuseable. Shipping is fast and reliable.

      A:

      Black pipe/nipple is not galvanized. Black pipe is used for hydronic heating systems and for gas supply. The pipe is made from steel. The "black" refers to the color of paint on the pipe.

      The BLACK appearance is the result of treatment applied (like guns) to

    Q:

    Is this piece a 2" pipe that is 4 inches long. Forgive the ignorance, but some of this can be confusing. Is the first measurement always the diameter of the pipe itself and the 2nd measurement the length? Thanks for any information. :)

      A:

      All black nipples had a residue on them when they are new, mostly oil from manufacture making product. It will also create discolored water when running water through it, that's why it is not used in water supply, except boiler app. Where water is treated.

      A:

      The reviews and Q&A are the same for all sizes of a single product. You
      might be looking at 1/2" x 3" black nipple, but a review or Q&A might apply
      to a 1/8" close nipple. The threaded length is standard in each case. For
      any 1/2" NPT, the standard visible external threaded length is about 3/4".

      A:

      The picture is misleading - it looks like it is for a 1/2" close nipple,
      not for a 12". The threaded portion of a 1/2" nipple will be about 5/8"
      on each end. The rest will be unthreaded.

      A:

      Hi,
      The nipple in question is not continually threaded and has an unthreaded area of roughly 1/2". A fully threaded nipple is called a "close" nipple. Keep in mind the threads are opposite directions on both ends (each end is a right handed thread). I hope this helps answer your question.

      A:

      It is not. The picture is generic. You've selected a 1/2" x 12" nipple,
      which is 12 inches long. The threading is pipe thread (NPT) which has a
      taper to it so it is not possible for the threading to be continuous. Only
      the end 1 inch or so is threaded.

      A:

      You should have about 3/4"thread on each end with approx. 10 1/2"of smooth or unthreaded pipe in between .
      That would be for a 1/2"x 12" nipp.

      Answered on 6/14/2012 by Anonymous
    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      Pipe sides are approximately ID. The standard says that tubing sizes are OD
      and pipe sizes are ID. But the exact inside diameter of all pipe varies
      with the strength of the pipe, that is, the thickness of the wall (called
      the "schedule" of the pipe). So schedule 40 pipe, for example, the lighter
      wall pipe, will have a slightly larger ID than Schedule 80, the thicker wall
      of which occludes some of the ID.
      The exception to this rule is hard drawn copper water tube, sometimes
      incorrectly called copper pipe. Copper water tube sizes are again
      approximately ID. Soft copper tubing, which comes in rolls is available in
      either pipe diameters (ID) or tubing diameters (OD).
      Confused? No wonder.
