and yes it belongs in this thread lol
you must not own a hacksaw
you should have avoided 2 of the bends on the next to last pic

if these pics are one single run of pipe ? i have counted approx. 720* in the pics alone

making accurate bends is not all there is to running pipe
picking a path that gives you the best route matters
planning your bends so that you use the least possible number of degrees in the run matters

did you know that 360 degrees is the maximum allowed by code and by physics?
did you know that experienced electricians try not to go over 270 degrees ?

That looked like 2" to me. Those were 1/2 fitting, right?
It's actually 4". There is no protection whatsoever on the wires at that point either. That goes straight from the generator to a disconnect. It is a Myers hub without the lock utility, stuck in the hub part of a sealtite connector. There is also a piece of 4/0 or so mine cable that leaves the generator head with protection, and runs at least 100' across the building to feed a fused disconnect. That is a 670 KW generator.

Looks like he is making a rack for a Ford 150 so all the trunk slammers can carry their ladders (that they steal from the job sites).

Cheers
