Bend, Cut, Expand and Clean Up Conduit with the Correct Tools
Electrical conduit can be made from metal, plastic or fiber and can be rigid. While some upkeep can extend the performance life, rigid conduit may not last as long and needs to be replaced, along with not being able to be adjusted once in use. Flexible conduit allows electricians to better manipulate the protective tubing and adjust it to the wire that it is protecting.
Adjust and Maneuver Electrical Conduit through Bending
One of the ways conduit can be adjusted is by bending it to your desired configuration. This is done with the help of conduit benders. Conduit benders normally come with handles that have size markings on them, making the job much easier. There are three general bends used in the field: the common offset, the saddle and the 90° bend - and the conduit benders we offer help accomplish each bend easily!
Smooth Out and Expand Conduit by Reaming
You can also ream conduit to expand it around the cable. This can be done with hand reamers or conduit ream bits that can go on a power drill. Conduit reamers are an essential part of any professional electrician's tool bag. Reaming conduit can also smooth out the end, especially after making a cut or scoring it to the size of your liking.
