Lowe's helpful video on bending conduit. This is epic. :laughing:


Good job Cory. I think the target audience for this video should just buy FMC instead.

Man my 10 deg bends look like yuk compared to the professional Mr Cory. I didn't know that a box offset is really a crappy bend with a dog leg.

I better go buy a bundle and practice.

. There's almost too many things wrong to talk about here , but the one I love the most is the first ( so called ) 10 degree bend , lol ? He shoots that first bend to almost 45 degrees , lol ! I wonder who made the back to back 90 on the floor ? I doubt it was him .

Maybe it's just me, but it sure looks as if he totally hosed the box offset and used another piece to show the "after" result.

No, they decided Cory can't do it, so they ripped a piece of pipe off the wall from when the place was built. Kills 2 birds with one stone that way. That way Cory can make how to videos on installing conduit, pulling wire and making up receptacles

Lowes should not produce how to videos. Especially when the advice given(or shown) is incorrect. This is a fail
at the very least , have someone who knows what the hell they're doing , give the advice , lol ! I can't help but laugh at the amount of weekend warrior homeowners who may have watched that disgrace and tried to copy it ! It's scary and funny all at the same time , lol !
