      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 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.

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

            That's what the lock washers are for.

              Not if you add bushings.

                You couldn't strip it, the conductors are not individually identified in NM. I don't have a problem pushing 12/2 down a straight piece of 1/2" EMT, as a matter of fact I did a job for a friend this week where I pushed 3 pieces around 90's, granted the runs were less than 10'.

                    I guess I need to clarify, I pushed single 12/2"s around 90's three different times.

                            Can you withdraw the wire from the wall? If so, cut off the MA, put on an LB, and reinstall the MA in the LB into the wall.

                            Of course, you'd have to make the hole in the wall bigger. Hey, you asked.

                            Who shot the mis-fired torpedo imnto the wall?
