    Example scenario: I have 2 junction box I have to connect with a 1/2" conduit. The height difference from the bottom of the top Jbox to the center of the 2nd Jbox is lets say 30". Going across, the distance between is 28". How can I find the radius so I can apply that into the formula to do a...

    Just watched a video on bend radius, gain, and takeup. (basic trade knowledge) The gain basically explains that the pipe does go further out. If you know it you would think that's how penis it is. It actually helps explains why it works, or makes sense. So... is this just a electrician...

    Hello, sometimes we need a specific radius that cannot be done by hand I have tried several tube bending companies but they do not have the tooling for EMT. Does anybody know of a company that can bend EMT to specs? Thank you.

    I have come across a situation where I wanted to change where my service wires entered my meter enclosure. I am looking for a reference to find out what is allowable and what might not be. I recently connected an overhead service where I would have liked to punch a hole in the top back portion...

    For small EMT conduit, where online would I find some technique description for bending a bunch of 90's in the same plane (i.e., mulitple adjacent pipes all with a 90 degree bend at same place. Called concentric bends I think. ). Thanks.
