Avoiding dogs in 1/2 & 3/4in. EMT


Greetings-

When bending 1/2" and 3/4" EMT with a hand bender, is there any good way to prevent dogs in offsets, saddles, etc? Allied makes conduit with length marks stamped along one quadrant of the pipe which helps but it is not typically available near me. No-dog levels don't seem to make much sense for hand benders. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

HNY,
Jim

The only way to do this with a hand bender is with a good eye.

Seems the older I get, the worse my pipe looks. I aint seein as well as i used to.

With hand benders it seems to take a talent (according to the old timers), after about 6 mos of practice you either have it or you don't. I myself after wasting lots and lots of pipe, DON"T, lol.

Sorry I don't have a magic trick to offer as one has never been shared with me.
