Hello Al, I am a electrician in NYC. The job photos you posted on parallel kicks is exceptional! I am trying to get the math down. My problem is I am trying to learn how to determine how to draw the right triangle that your pipe run dictates and which side to solve in order to determine the degrees. I have a 3"emt. run assignment that my foreman just wants me to kick off the wall and fan it out.I don't think it looks good that way. I would like to learn the parallel kicks. I understand basic trig and sides of the angle. The pipe run I am picking up is existing. It consists of 4 -3"pipes with spacing of 5.5" center to center that are running perpendicular to a distribution panel they are to be landed in. The distribution panel is 8" thick and 40" long, and I have a piece of 1-1/2" kindorf as a spacer to enter the top. My spacing for the pipes to enter is 4.75" center to center. Could you or anyone that see's this please give me some insight on how to solve this pipe run mathematically?
