    Watching them run those taps in its easier to understand why the fittings we get here are so poor.

    Agreed, straight through unions with a parallel thread made "cheap as chips", Lord alone knows what the steels quality is like, probably the worst mixed remelt going if it's anything like most of the Chinesium steels used in such fittings. "it's as good as Swagelok" according to one supplier, it's not even close to HamLet or even Hoke...

    They didn't show the QC guy with his fabric tape measure checking the parts for accuracy.

    If you can't make it precise make it adjustable.
