Don't Want to Bend Conduit? Use Fittings Instead
They may cost a little more and look a bit less professional, but if you have just a few bends to make and don't want to buy a bender and learn how to use it, you can use fittings instead. You can turn inside corners and change direction with pre-bent 90- and 45-degree angles connected to straight sections of EMT with couplings. Buy pulling ells to avoid bending the conduit around outside corners. You can also use offset connectors instead of making an offset bend where EMT connects to boxes.
