Hoophouse - bending conduit, attempt 1
What I'm going to do is cut multiple curves out of that plywood or any scrap wood I've got around. Anchor one end of the pipe, and then bend it to that curve.
The pipe shown here is galvanized fence top rail. I don't know if it'll work with the heavier rigid conduit, but i'll be trying that tomorrow. I think that it will -- because of leverage.
Bending a 2' length of pipe is very difficult. Bending a 20' length of pipe is much easier; the moment arm is so much longer.
