For the first time, there is a well-organized, comprehensive reference tool for bending conduit - available in both print and CD formats! A trusted and industry-recognized alternative to the currently published material, Coffman's Method of Conduit Bending offers electricians and electrical students a proven way to install conduit using all types of benders. This widely accepted method has saved many electricians time, effort, and money. To familiarize readers with this methodology, the book begins with an introduction to conduit bending and the associated theories. Coverage then progresses to include coverage of three- and four-point saddles, 90 degree bends, and segment bending. With a print version that is small enough to be stored in a tool kit, and an interactive CD for self-paced learning, this promises to be a valuable resource, both in the field and in the classroom.
