In this addition of job tips, IBEW member Jason shows us an alternative way to cut conduit
Step 1: take your tape measure and mark off your conduit with a pencil
Step 2: Place your conduit in a solid corner of your room
Step 3: Take your conduit, lay it in an open face set of pliers as close to the cut as possible to create a tristand.
Step 4: Take your hacksaw, begin your cut. While you are making a cut put a downward and back pressure to make it more stable.
This tip is great for when you are on a job site that does not have any power tools or you are not able to set up conduit along a ladder or there is no solid surface to cut the conduit off of.
