Benfield Conduit Bending Manual - good?
Is the Benfield manual a good investment?
Being in my 1st year of IBEW apprenticeship, one of the subjects in our class is conduit bending. I have some experience hand bending EMT before the apprenticeship, and even more experience now, even before we start studying it in class.
I have been reading and studying the different bends and different methods that are described and illustrated in our book, just wondering if Benfield's book would be a good addition to my learning tools.
One of the aspects that I like about apprenticeship so far is working with different journeymen, and learning their differing methods of arriving at their goals, unlike when I worked Industrial electrical & maintenance, where I had to self-teach (and learn from the instructions that come with a new Greenlee bender, haha!). I like to have different methods at my disposal, because I know that one method does not always work in all circumstances.
