Default Re: EMT conduit handlebars?

I worked with conduit for 30 years. Use 1/2 inch IMC. The outside diameter is 3/4 inches. The tubing is much stronger than EMT but lighter than rigid conduit. Yes a mechanical bender would be the best way to bend it. But a strong enough person can bend 1/2 inch IMC with a 3/4 inch hand bender. You're asking for trouble using EMT.
