Got a story to go along with that Dash?
Yeah all it is, is a heat gun and a drop cloth. We really didn't need it, but another worker didn't believe I could bend 2 1/2" with out a hot box or PVC blanket. I've used this method in a pinch before where I have been off a few inches on stub ups through concrete to been an offset.Joefixit2 said:Yes that would be nice. Is that a plain old heat gun? Or a hair dryer? And what about the blanket, is it an electric blanket or just an old drop cloth?? By the way I learned a long time ago never to leave the glue open next to the trench.
The drop cloth just insulates the pipe so it heats up faster.Jarp Habib said:I didn't notice the heat gun sticking out of the end lol. What is the dropcloth for then? Not long into my first year apprenticeship they had me in a hole under what was going to be an electrical room, using a heat gun to reshape dozens of conduit up to 3" that got shifted when the backfill guys collapsed the supports. Never heard of using a heat gun from the inside out though, that is clever.
We get charged out at $69 an hour... its cheaper to grab some .45 and 90. sweeps and return them if we dont use them than it is to mess around bending PVC for underground but I am impressed that worked.
