In the process of remodeling an old house, all kinds of weird conduit bending were discovered behind the sheetrock.
I think I hint to who did the work is in that I found home repair center price tags on the Conduit.

Weird, but probably legal. Could use a strap here and there.

Probably an engineer wiring his own place. They think this is how conduit is bent, seen it 100 times

Pretty instering to see that but yes I have see it once a while but typically rare for me.

that sure someone making pretty good shepard hook ( spelling ) without getting the conduit kinked .,

MTW may guess that place is correct due I am aware of Chicago with conduit rules so they get pretty good with bending.

Wired a Bank Vault something like that if memory serves. Might have been for documents? I was maybe a 4th year the so 45 years ago.

Something about crooks pouring stuff in the conduits? Can't remember. I think it was all mapped out for us,

Not sure. You go more than 90 at a shot with Greenfield and Sealtite pretty regularly, no doubt. Code only says no more than 360 between pull points.

One may tend to think that but most trunk slammers don't put that much work effort into conduit tasks, more like a guy that doesn't do much pipe work and thinks he did a great job.

That’s awesome piping! Hilarious! I want to save those pics on my phone to show apprentices. Great find!

(Awesomely awful, in case that wasn’t obvious)

A trunkslammer would have bought every premade angle and fitting under the sun to accomplish that. That looks like it was done by someone who actually knows how to use a bender.
