That's what I used to do before semiconductor went all to hell. Started out doing mechanical and pipefitting then moved on to controls and electrical later on. All non union outfits.

Did you really have to turn this thread into another union vs open shop boxing match? Why can't we just leave that to the other thread instead of mixing in the passive aggressive jabs? Jesus.

That is some hella nice pipe work though. Kudos to whoever did it.

I'm non union (used to be a union shop) and I can bend any size pipe with a big enough front end loader.

We are a small non union shop and have the equipment and skills to bend just as well or better than those pics. And by we, I mean the journeyman. Not myself quite yet

Some guys have a hard time giving a "pat on the back" for a job well done..

For those of you who "do it all the time" and it's no big deal... lets see the pics...

Why does that sound like a joke to you...
Not true it depends on the electrician if he wants to be great at what he does or just the average joe.I worked for non union company's my whole career and most of the guys I worked with took pride in there work and can bend any type of conduit.But I can understand your point that unions might have the tools to get it done on time and under budget,but it has nothing to do with being union it's up to the electrician himself.

So if we don't take pictures and post them on an internet forum we can't say we do that type of work?

I have never taken pictures at work. I guess that means I've never worked? Who am I going to show these pictures to? My wife? She doesn't care, as long as the paychecks keep coming every week she doesn't care what I do to earn them. The only people who would care about pictures of electrical work are the guys on this forum. Normal people don't care because, well, it's electrical work. Big deal.

Just because YOU can't do that kind of work doesn't mean there aren't many non union guys out there that can and do this type of work regularly.

No wonder the union guys on here from New York act superior, apparently the non union guys in New York are incompetent.

I'm glad it's not that way in my area.

Most of us enjoy seeing pictures of other guys work. I for one would rather see pics than read about the work someone did...
