Making a bend in conduit takes a little practice, and to make multiple bends line up correctly you’ll have to work even harder — unless you’ve got No-Dog’s offset level. Correct use of the No-Dog will help you eliminate dog-legs in your offset and saddle bends.

This precision-tooled aluminum offset level measures 1/2″ x 1″ x 2″ — conveniently sized to carry in a pocket or toolbox, or to clip to a hardhat or tool belt.

To use the No-Dog, attach it to either end of the conduit as shown in the photo, turn the conduit in the bender until the No-Dog shows level, and bend the conduit. For every additional bend in the same plane, make sure the No-Dog is level before bending.

Available in gold, silver, red, blue, green, purple, and black, you can also get the No-Dog custom engraved with your company name or logo.

A single No-Dog offset level sans engraving will set you back about $15.

    We’ve used the Greenlee and Checpoint varities for some years.
    This one that you show – has only the one vial – but is cheaper and mighty compact. We may give one a try.

    BTW – bending threade heavy-walled conduit and pipe – especially in larger sizes – requires a hydraulic bender – unless you have Paul Bunyon and Babe on your crew.

    Many of us on the jobsite have these little, but very important tools.

    Also, to correct Fred, you can bend rigid conduit and pipe in an electric bender as well as a hydraulic bender. However if you need to bend anything larger than 2″ you are limited to hydraulic only.

    Good to know that there is an electric option.
    With our business split between 1) pipe/railing fabrication and plumbing and 2) Woodworking/Carpentry – with some GC work – we leave the electrical work to others.
    I just may have ignored or not seen electric benders on the commercial jobsites that we’ve worked.
    In our metal fab shop we have 2 Baileigh hydraulic machines – one’s is a mandrel bender that we use for bending SS railing.

    For a poor man’s no-dog you can put a connector in a T-conduit body. Put that on your pipe, then you can just lay it flat, make the first bend, then flip it over and make the second.
