some opinions on whether or not it would be code compliant to do it that way. Got anything worthwhile to contribute?
That was a pretty crappy thing to say to someone that is trying to offer up an idea.



When its all said and done there is usually more said than done

Maybe I took it the wrong way but it's obvious that you can bend conduits to fit. Wasn't expecting
someone to be bragging about being capable of bending conduit. The code is subject to interpretation.
Looking for someone who can nail down the original question with an irrefutable code reference and not some cocky
B.S. So far nobody has.
I do appreciate your feedback.

I give. While that section is specifically directed to electrical continuity, it does appear to address itself to other matters as well. Although I had been chastised many times for utilizing a titled section for anything other than what the title directs itself to, it does appear to require a mechanical connection (I think Cowboys's comment of "bolt" was not intended to be a exact statement but more of a paraphrased commentary).

I will still stick by: I have done exactly what you are suggesting many times and have never had an inspector knock it down. You had the correct idea before when you said you were going to ask your local inspector. I think that is the only thing that is really going to matter.
