    I saw this online and the math used is much more precise than the cosecant method for bending
    conduit. Has anyone used it?


    I saw this reference article on precision;

    http://www.electrician2.com/electa1/offset.html

    might be too much math for electricians??

    perswonally i find that a hilmor bender is easier to bend the conduit. don't think an iphone can stand the stress.

    This is an American set-up, so don't use the conduit dimensions , they are very different to our metric sizes, or come to that, our old imperial sizes!! They have always used internal dimensions where we have always used the external dimensions of conduit.

    Most of their bending machines are powered either electrically or hand hydraulically. They tend not to like doing anything by pure man power...lol!!

    The program permits you to put your own tool in for bending. So it makes no difference whether
    it is metric or American standard trade sizes. I have never seen a small practical electric bender for
    small size conduit-it is usually bent by hand!!!

    What a total load of excrement. Learn to bend conduit by doing it.
    OK I’m a fossil!

    Guaranteed there is not a decent spark in the country that needs that nonsense to bend a conduit. By the time you would work that lot out there wouldn't be alot of pipe installed.

    Agreed, ...Take it from me, the Yank sparks wouldn't find that nonsense helpful either, and they use conduit containment far, far more than you do in the UK... ....It's like their T&E!! lol!!...

    Just looked at the app store and they want £2.49 for the app. It's not even worth buying for entertainment purposes. :)
