Clarification: Actually, there are three thicknesses of steel conduit
commonly used in North America. In the trade, they are designated "Rigid
Steel Conduit," "Intermediate Metal Conduit," and Electrical Metallic
Tubing. Wall thicknesses varies with conduit size, and for these 1.5-inch
nominal conduits are are 0.138 in, 0.09 in, and 0.065 in respectively. I'm
talking about using a 10 ft length of "Rigid Steel Conduit," which is 1.9
inch o.d., with only a 3-el SteppIR at the top (which is relatively small
and light weight).
