Does anyone use IMC? I have run rigid alum and EMT by the mile I have only been on one job that had any IMC and it was sent to another job.
The thread specs for IMC and rigid are identical, although you do have to be very careful to have the die set for the correct depth. Often rigid dies are set deeper than they should be, but if you do that with IMC, you risk the conduit breaking at the threads because of the reduced wall thickness.We use I.M.C a lot here in factory work. You should use the IMC dies when threading because rigid dies cut the threads to deep.
