Default Minimal conduit work, Shockdoc style

Yesterdays conduit rough start, my goal was to liven up two rooftop HVAC units, they were done by noon
Last pic is a transision to RMC for the roof penetration pitch pocket , I bought a stick of 3/4 and 1/2", cut them in half and let my green apprentice learn how to thread.
Figured it will last a little longer than EMT or LFMC thru the pitch pocket.

Looks good. I dont use ridgid to penetrate the roof though, sealtight does the trick for me.

Doesn't look like you have too many circuits to worry about in there, im sure your pulling at least 3 - 4 circuits per pipe, right? What is this place?

It's retail space with a couple offices and a jewelry repair room, other than that it's all lighting and showcase lighting. The owner is supplying fixtures and I'm still waiting for specs. This job is going up without a blueprint which sucks for me. Total As-Builts all around. I'll probably be up to 6 ckts per conduit by the time we pull wires, all MWBC with ties.

I wasn't gonna attempt a direct pipe into disco, too much time and energy, I stubbed 12" above roof and then transitioned to LFMC 20" to the disco.

I was handed a bender and a print ....
it wasn't pretty either....
looked like I was using the print as a steering wheel and the bender as a stick shifter

Oh, of course it was an old 3 point hand threader. He got his first workout.
