Electricians Guide to Conduit Bending
William Connell: I bought this book originally in 1993, from a book store in Houston, Texas. Had I known how much information and knowledge I would gain from this one book, I would have purchased 10! I'm attempting to replace my original book since it's about to fall apart from so much use. I teach conduit bending from the Apprentice to Journeyman level, and this book has been my instructors guide. It's an absolute gem!
RTB: I am a conduit bending instructor for the International
Brotherhood of Electrical Workers apprenticeship program. When I went through
the conduit bending class in the early 90’s your book was part of the
curriculum. It has been the best text book I have used.
Robert Grganto: As an instructor this book is the best tool I have found to teach my
students the art of conduit bending. As an electrician I use this book every
time I lay out a conduit run. This manual is easy to understand and transforms
the novice to a craftsman with it's step by step method for bend layouts. I
would find it hard pressed to teach conduit bending without this book.William D. Connell: I bought this book originally in 1993, from a book store in Houston,

It's an absolute gem! It's a shame it's so hard to find.
Paul DeLaGaarza: In the electrician's field
of work, the bottom dollar for the contractor is to minimize cost for material
as much as possible. When an electrician can utilize his skill in bending
conduit with accuracy, performance speaks volumes about his training. I use
this book in my classes because it gives clear instructions in conduit bending
but also per-determined measurements can be used. All the measurements are calculated
and cut, examples are easy to follow. By the time my labs for bending are
complete, the students have no problems on their commercial project. This book
is must, believe me!
Greg: This book definitely simplifies the methods being taught at my local
340. all the calculations have proven to be accurate. definitely worth the
investment. if you really expect full value then plan on spending about $40 on
a couple bundles of 1/2" E.M.T so you can practice the bends that are
Ron: As an apprentice this has help clarify the text book I'm learning
from for pipe bending. Same information, just better format. At least for me!
This book was suggested to me by my journeyman, who has been a great teacher.
It was one he carried for a solid thirty years, and used regularly. I actually
bought two of them. One for myself, and one for him. He lost his in a fire
several years ago, would suggest this book to apprentices and journeymen alike!
Jason E. Furgason: This is the book I used as a union apprentice, I purchased it to
help teach my employees the concepts of PROPER PIPE BENDING!
Lilly: This book was recommended to me by my journeymen and i'm so glad I
got it. I have pulled it out many times and is written in a easy to understand
manner and really presents information well. the spiral bound makes it easy to
lay out flat and comes with a wallet size cheat sheet for commonly needed
info.. It is also written by a retired IBEW member also like supporting my
T Savage: Great book for bending conduit for the guy starting out and for
reference along the way. I found the instructions easy to understand and a must
have in my tool kit.
MHFPD: This book is an excellent resource to keep in the job box or at home
on bookshelf . The book explains and helps the novice or the journeyman layout
Don A. Kitchen: I have several conduit books in my library. I started my
apprenticeship in January 1979. This is one outstanding book! Well worth the
Rich S: I highly recommend this book. It has given me the knowledge to teach
myself how to make better bends. It takes the guesswork out bending and saves
EMT. It is well written and includes examples and problems (with answers) to
work out on paper or real EMT so you can get actual experience. The spiral
binding is a plus as you can lay it flat, on the page you're on, while you
work. Anybody who doesn't have someone to teach them bending should definitely
buy this book as well as those who need a reference book while being taught.
Giovani: The suppliers of this book show good support for the buyers of this
book. They send your book out on time so you can get your conduit bending
skills going, they give you extra items like a plastic 90 degrees level and a
pencil to start writing down those invented formulas you come up with as learn.
The condition of the book is new no dents or fainted printing. It is a spiral
bond book as shown on the picture above, really great book from Richard A Cox
former International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Union member (AKA)
I.B.E.W Local Union #. If you are an apprentice Electrician in the need of easy
conduit bending techniques, this book will help you get going when you are in
the field. NO JOKE!!!
