tapered pipe thread (ta•per•ed pipe thread)

a continuous helical ridge (thread) that is cut or rolled deeper at the end of a pipe than at any other portion, and gradually enlarges to a point of non- existence; in plumbing, the American standard taps for pipe threads yields a diameter increase of 3/4″ per foot of thread length.
