I turned schedule 80 black pipe years ago to make new driver tires for a
model locomotive.

I used a home-made form tool of HS steel and managed to get a very good
finish. The tool cut slowly, probably because of the geometry of the
tool, but this was good as it was easier to make six of all equal diameter.

I think it is welded pipe but the weld was never apparent when turning
the pipe and is not visible in the finished parts.

BTW are you descended from the Rev. John L?
