I just partially rewired someone's garage. They had some NMB cable running through a piece of EMT that wasn't connected to anything else. I am thinking I need to bond this piece of pipe. (It goes overhead to another garage behind the one I rewired. Gotta love the maintenance man.) Anyway, I am hoping I can just put a ground clamp on that piece of pipe and hook it to a ground wire in the closest electrical box. (The garage is powered by one 15A multiwire circuit.) I remember reading something about having to bond both ends of the pipe but I have no idea whether that was just a discussion or if it is somewhere in the code book.

It is the power for the second garage... it goes from one garage to the next... that's the way it was wired. The EMT is not connected to anything else, it is just a sleeve.

I'll check that out when I get home (250)... there's a 7 foot piece of conduit going between the buildings and I ran uf wire through the conduit... it is only a sleeve and I'm getting the impression that a sleeve does not need to be bonded... I hope I have this correct.

Ground it anyway. It could become energized when the witches meet in Salem.
