    Conduit Panel Clamps (cheap!)

    Hi Rafe, your argument doesn't hold up here I'm afraid - and that is because you are applying the same thinking about the properties of wood; i.e. that it bends; to round metal bars - which don't. When you state very emphatically that "round bar CANNOT PROVIDE PRESSURE IN THE MIDDLE". This is incorrect - round bar when used in the application described here and in the way instructed *will not bend*. And therefore it provides pressure as evenly as the screws at either end are tightened down. Physics 101.Also - you (and others to be fair) keep banging on about the cost of this pipe - HE gets it cheap - and I'm guessing that since he's American - there are about 300 million people or more that can also get it cheap. Just because you cannot is not a legitimate reason for criticis...

Just because you cannot is not a legitimate reason for criticism of any kind. And besides - where'd you get that "scrap" wood that you used? Did it just appear magically in your hands or did you pay for it at some point. Doesn't matter if it's left over from some other project .. did you pay for it? I bet you did.Moot point anyway because people like yourself are hell bent on bashing down ideas - ANY ideas that are not the same as yours or are not centuries old. Your favourite words are can't don't didn't won't wasn't isn't and never.I'm making myself a set of these panel clamps for sure - fantastic solution to a problem, easy to produce and for not much money - even here in my country which is expensive.Have a great day in the shop.
