Electrical conduit bending requires several tools and a level surface. It also requires accurate measurements and heavy pressure for a precise bend. Using several measurements to check the bend ensures accuracy.
Bending an electrical conduit necessitates the use of a bender, a tape measure, a pencil, a conduit and a small level. The bender needs to be the same size as the pipe. Placing a level on the pipe ensures that the floor is level.
Measurements need to account for the length of the bend and take into account the bender. Pressure on the handle and heavy foot pressure on the heel of the bender create the bend. Check accuracy by using the level on the front of the pipe and the floor. Use a tape measure to check from the floor to the top of the pipe.
