EMT - Tools & Tips

Yeah I used have a double EMT offset kicker but someone swipped from my tool box so end up buy two of them { Merde ! }

To readers if you only do couple some case there is a offset coupling but only quirk is you have to watch the conductor numbers due some of the offset coupling may restrict the flowage when you pull the conductors.



The answer will be based on NEC ( National Electrical code ) or CEC ( Cananda Electrical code ) or ECF ( Electrique Code France )

EMT - Tools & Tips

Like the others said the offsets take practice. I do use a measurement for mine though. For 1/2" pipe I make a mark at the 3" and 6" mark and for 3/4" pipe I use 4" and 8" marks. I put the arrow on the first mark and bend slightly, spin the pipe 180 degrees and make the second bend at the second mark. This is just how I was taught most people just do them by eye. The biggest mistake that most beginners make is over bending offsets.
