Discuss Why? Is metal conduit so thick in the Electrical Forum area at ElectriciansForums.net

I have been given a short length of Emt tube from America , which is basically their ‘go to’ produce for surface wiring.
It is thinner than our version and much easier to bend than our version.
I would say it’s not much thicker than copper plumbers pipe.
But imo offers good mechanical strength (I have jumped on it and hit it with a small hammer and it stands up just fine)

So why don’t we use something much similar which can g manipulated and bend by hand using a small hand pipe bender

Thoughts ?
