Electrical Tubing and Conduit Benders

Electricians Tools for Electrical Work

emt conduit bender
Summary: Here are the Conduit Benders I use on most all of my electrical jobs and projects.

EMT Conduit Benders and Rigid Pipe Benders

Example of Electrical Conduit Benders:

  • EMT Conduit Benders: Used for bending thin wall electrical metallic tubing (EMT).
  • Offset Conduit Benders: Used for creating an offset bend in thin wall electrical metallic tubing (EMT).
  • Rigid Pipe Benders: Used for bending thick wall electrical rated rigid steel pipe.

Electrical Conduit and Pipe Benders

  • Electrical conduit benders are available for sizes 1/2 to 1- 1/4 inch.
  • Hydraulic pipe benders are available for larger sizes of electrical conduit and rigid pipe.
  • Heated PVC pipe benders are available in a variety of sizes.

Full Radius EMT Conduit Bender

The bender itself is bought as a shoe and threaded onto a rigid metal pipe which may be interchangeable with a few different sizes of benders.

The bender to the left is a full size radius bender. Some brands of benders for larger size conduits may be used for rigid conduits which are one size smaller than the EMT size conduit.

Short Radius EMT Conduit Bender

This is a short radius bender used for 1/2 inch EMT. Keep in mind that when using short radius bends it will be more difficult to pull in the wire.

Offset EMT Conduit Bender

This is a Offset Bender which is great for creating the offset bend allowing the EMT to line up perfectly with most metal junction box openings, such as the 4-Square box. This offset bender is available for 1/2 and 3/4 inch EMT.

Hickey Rigid Pipe Bender

This hickey bender is used for bending heavy wall rigid pipe and is great for creating bends in tight places, like trenches etc.
