I forgot I had a small conduit job tomorrow and I left my conduit bender at work. This means I dont have any kind of vice to hold the 25mm galv whist I thread it.

Any imaginative ideas on how I can thread it without any kind of vice?

I have some clamps but no vice so to speak....

If the site has a lathe , you might manage to hold it in the chuck.

Unfortunatly it's not a site, it's a side job for a friend.

All I have as options are a bench vice, some mole grips, pipe wrench and clamps.

Starting to sound like a scenario post from tbe trainee section haha

We have successfully done this once on a job by using an SDS drill bit shoved into one end of the conduit and then using the floor and your knee you can force the conduit up at an angle with the drill bit putting pressure on one end
This allowed us to thread 4-5 lengths on a job
