Hello Neighbors,

This is sort of an odd request but I'm working on a DIY project and need to make ~8 bends in some 1" rigid aluminum conduit (1.31" outside diameter). This is not a home electrical project so I could bring the conduit to your location to do the bending.

I know an electrician could make the bends but I expect there will be some trial-and-error and time involved to fit everything up, thus I am worried about cost. So before I go that route I am wondering if any pinecammers own a conduit bender sized for 1-1/4" EMT / 1" rigid conduit they would be willing to lend an hour or two of time on, or a mandrel bender with 1-3/8" die. I am competent to operate either tool.

I'd be glad to find a way to repay the favor or pay it forward to another neighbor via this forum.

Thanks for looking.

I have a 1-1/4" emt bender with a pedal (for extra leverage), if you're interested, also. You're welcome to borrow if wanted.
