You need the rims that are smooth inside not the crap like today . Mount the rims on a flat stock sheet metal plate weld or bolt your choice .They must be touching each other edge to edge of the rims weld together . Two options slide the 2 inch inside and bend a kick is simple . Now heres option two rigid bends no kinks but if you bend EMT more than 45 deg trick is to pack it with white sand and i mean pack it wet . Use a ram to pack it inside fill it up to the top and you can bend a 90 deg elbow perfect . But today we use benders its just better and you dont look like a complete idiot at work . To add just for laughs ive bent 4 inch rigid with a grove in the ground made by a truck tire in the mud after it was dryed in the sun and hard not just any dirt will work lay the pipe length wise inside tire grove and pushed it down with the jback side round part of a rubber tire hoe bucket . Trust me it works great each push you do real slow dont rush and it will look just like that 10,000 dollar bender .
This is only if your in a real jam and dont have any money and sleep in your truck at the job site .

Do that a few times and you paid for the tools you really need.
