As with most things, there are several options for the tools used. Conduit can be cut with a hacksaw, angle grinder with slitting disc or a powered hacksaw or chop saw.

This video shows threading with a manual tool, however electric powered threading tools are available which may be useful for large scale projects.


The conduit vice featured in this video is attached to a bending machine. Bending will be covered in a future episode.
