About 25 - 3"& 2" EMT's. The only ones strapped are the ones on the 3 meters that have been added later, and 1 - 2" is strapped to another (unsecured conduit. It's about 15' to the 1st trapeze hanger on the other 21.
My question:
Didn't the NEC used to require EMT to be fastened within 36" of every bend or fitting?
A helper w/ 2 yrs. exp. showed me that it's only @ terminations and every 10'. This was brought to my attention after one of my "raving and carrying on about Code" visits to a jobsite (hence the electure nickname). I was wrong, and my boot's in my mouth
(BTW, this installation above never would pass anyway, and that gear isn't even fastened down, it's just standing there [since 'the 60's]

I fasten conduit and cable every time it changes direction, if possible. I tend to staple and strap too much, but it makes for neater installations. (110-12?)
