    EMT is permitted by [COLOR=#333333]334.15(B). But I see no reason for not permitting Sch40.[/COLOR]

    I would use 1/2" EMT. Pushing 12-2 NM complete with jacket through 1/2" EMT would be a PITA. You could probably strip the jacket since it's inside a raceway, but who wants to strip 5-8 ft of NM? (Striping the jacket is a violation I believe.) THHN would be cheaper on labor.

    Heck, you can use schedule 40 on the outside of a house, on a fence, on gazebo. Don't they think that conduit getting chewed on by a bulldog is a little more subject to physical hazard than installed in a garage ( everyone in Georgia has a bulldog).
    I use schedule 80 for meter risers (when the weatherhead stays below the roof) and also for stub-ups from trenches to above lawnmower height.

    I wonder if they'll scratch their nuts.

    Here, the opposite would happen.

    Larry, I didn't take you for a frequent contact with police kinda guy. Are you revealing something?
    No, I've mellowed over the years. Yes, really. Nothing serious or frequent.

    An occasional traffic infringement, but not on the bike, surprisingly, and not in a while.

    Some minor league team are experimenting with ball and strike calls by automated systems. They are also trying out moving the pitcher's mound back by several feet. The point of the first is to remove inconsistencies by human umps and the other is to tilt things more in favor of the offense.

    Personally, I do not think baseball needs these "improvements". I wish they hadn't brought in the DH or moved the Astros into the AL where it is.

    I use PVC sleeves and regular nail on boxes. I end the PVC right at the knockout of the boxes.

    I would do a cost/benefit analysis to see if just running NM and then covering it with drywall would be cheaper. The labor on EMT installs is much higher than NM installs.
