I used your threads in two of my designs, but didn't list them as a remix as they serve different purposes. You are credited for the threads, just thought I would let you know. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1605135 http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1617652

Automatic pool skimmer (whirl pool jet)
Sock Holder for Pool Jet

I just drew them from the NPT spec sheet, nothing new there.
Glad you found them useful.

until I get around to learning scad modeling threads are annoying with tinkercad so it saved me a good amount of time

I printed this, but the ball does not fit inside the jet.

Are you trying to say the ball is too large for the housing?

Correct, I've tried a lot of force and it won't go all the way in. Was just curious if I missed something.

Sounds like you need to calibrate the machine. E-steps, filament diameter, and dimensional accuracy for example.
The ball is .4mm smaller diameter than the housings mating surface.

Just wanted to follow-up and report that this design does work for me after all. The ball required a bit of force and lubrication to get it in place, but once there, it works GREAT!
