480Sparky,Offset Shrink Table
Angle of Offset Bends
1/16" = .063" shrink per inch of offset
3/16" = .188" shrink per inch of offset
1/4" = .250" shrink per inch of offset
3/8" = .375" shrink per inch of offset
1/2" = .500" shrink per inch of offset
Do you know if these shrink values are the same for all radius (radii'?) of bends?
That's a nice list BTW.
you'd have a tough time getting 10' of emt horizontally through these steel studs on my job right now. When's lunch?[/QUOTE]Bkessler said:[QU OTE=ponyboy;1296945]Determining shrink values for kicked 90s is the same as figuring for offsets. To find the shrink you must know the angle of the kick and put the center of that bend at the correct spot off the back edge of the 90. I've noticed most people just throw it in the bender and go when kicking 90s. This works fine until you need to do something that requires some precision. You could always bend it long and cut it to length but that's grade A hack
