    Default Need electrician advice

    I'm doing a remodel on my guest house and I was wondering how many bends can I put on a length of conduit before I have to install a box ? Any help would be greatly appreciated and srry if this is the wrong forum.

    Typically you shouldn't put more than 270d. Any more than that you will find it hard to pull the wire. 360d would be the maximum.

    I wouldn't suggest beyond 270 either, as there really are very few excuses for it (oops just thought of a few scenarios, nevermind). OK, not over 360, that would get silly. There is always cable pulling lube (sounds kinky, but it is real):

    360 is way to much to pull wire, you want to have a J-box in a few locations anyway in case you want to add outlets / switches.

    cable pulling lube is also called gorilla snot, makes it much less kinky sounding. that s*** is messy.

    Whatever you do make sure it is permited when you resell your house it could really hurt you. W used an electrician for our remodel, and He loves the kings gave him some extra tickets I could not make it. The company he works for is Branover Contractors We got several bids and they were the lowest.

    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.
