You are a manly man! I've done my share, then one day at the junk yard we saw a Rigid electric. It needed a new cord. We bought it for the price of the aluminum. Heeheeee! I don't have it now...it stayed with the company I was working for.
Lowes & Home Depot will thread pipe for you. Ol' rule of thumb: Figure the distance between the two fitting, add 9/16" on each end for the threads.
