Looking for writen guide to bending Conduit.
All conduit bending guidance seems to be done through word of mouth.
Looking for a writen guide even if ancient
There must be something writen down with guidelines, angles etc. There seem to be US guides but nothing for the UK.
Thanks.

Unfortunately both books and most of the google search are based on the US method of bending Conduit and seems to be quite different :(
 
I've got training books on conduit, tray and plenty of other stuff from the 80's when I was an apprentice under CITB / JIB
But the books go hand in hand working on site with a skilled Electrician showing you the way to bend and form conduit.

I used to have this too, had it handed down to me from a particularly facetious old boy. Can this publication still be sourced?

Something like this sounds good, any idea the name of the training books?

Sorry think I pressed some wrong quote buttons etc, I'm new :)

@Loki some interesting stuff

hoping for something bit more like the US guides but for UK

Seems a bit crazy that theres no writen guides only word of mouth.
 
That's because it's a secret ;)

When i did conduit bending on the 2365, it sort of went in one ear and out the other, i found it much easier to learn it and for it to sink in by getting a few lengths from a store and bending it at home with a borrowed set of formers. i am what they call a kinesthetic learner, i learn by hand and doing. it then made perfect sense. albeit im lucky if i touch metal conduit more than a handful of times a year.

Yeah I did it last week on my 2365 and realised Yesterday I'd totally forgotten it all, So want some kind of written reference, I may end up renting a Bending machine and buying some lengths of conduit :)
 
I've got the 4 books from JIB/CITB, from when i was a apprentice and show how to make trunking bends and how to bend conduit.

Any chance you or anyone else can upload the these if not anyone got the full name of these books so I can look around.
Thanks

A good one a mate did was to do his own garage in metal conduit.
Got some good practice and ended up with an ace looking install albeit OTT for the purpose

Any decent benders going cheap on here?

Thought I'd dust the cobwebs off and get the tallow out as I still have my stocks and dies and a stop.

The best way is to just have a go, steel conduit is good fun. Attached is a photo of some recent work in the back room of a church, mostly 32mm, with a bit of 25, and 20mm.
