I have not personally used them, but in talking with our warehouse man he tells me they are very popular and in demand by the feild crews.Iwire said in #12 they have several. I do not have one but I do use a torch which is essentially the same thing and it works.
You didn't hear this from me, but......Iwire said in #12 they have several. I do not have one but I do use a torch which is essentially the same thing and it works.
Same here. We carry 2 torches on the truck, and they work quite fast and effectively. Use them for heat shrink as well.... I do use a torch which is essentially the same thing and it works.
Never thought of that. I have found that the abrasiveness of the dirt in the hole will remove slight discolorations as well. I mean it had to be the dirt, right? :grin:You didn't hear this from me, but......
If you get some grey primer (spray can type) from the local car parts store you will have a means to make the brown and sometimes black spots on the conduit go away. It's almost exactly the same color and hides scorches just like it was identified for the purpose.
Yeah, me neither but I will occasionally discolor the conduit so I can identify the location of the bend. :grin:And, no, we don't need any gray primer or paint. We don't scorch our pipes.
I used to work for a company in the mid 80s and thats how we did it back then.So inserting the PVC conduit into the exhaust pipe of a truck in order to heat it is not an approved method ?
