Yep, use teflon tape......... I would use the galvanized pipe if its for a air line because it does not rust. If its for a gas line you will have to use the black pipe.

Pipe answer

Knowing what you want to do with the pipe might affect the validity and safety of the answer?

I am an avid believer in copper pipe for air lines and until now I would always suggest it first, BUT with the prices of copper today I too recommend galvanized.

Pipe Question

Yes Red I wanted Copper.That is untill I priced it . But now the question is when using teflon tape dont you have to lay it on the way you twist the pipe so you dont tear it off once again thanks for the answers guys.....Randy

Wrap the teflon tape on in a clockwise direction with the end of the fitting facing you.

I used all galvanized pipe and it wasn't that bad since I could borrow a pipe threader. I would use a pipe thread sealant available at Home Depot called Rector Seal, good stuff! I had zero leaks and am running a two stage compressor with 175 psi shut off.
