Default Re: is this for Real...Electrical Conduit for Frame building?

Do NOT use electrical conduit for making a frame! That stuff is too soft and will fail.
It was designed to hold and protect wires and be relatively easy to install, nothing else!
Mild steel tubing is stronger than that steel reinforced bubblegum that conduit is made out of.
Most suitable tubing is ERW. Mild steel or better yet Chromoly.
