The handy box has four empty KO's, so there's room for four more cables, right?

Would you reconsider the use of the copper pipe, since it maybe of the type that will comply with rules in Article 680 where "brass or other approved corrosion-resistant metal" is allowed to be used for the wiring methods for some systems.

Search for the term "conduit" and look at the many entries in that Article

Even plumbers are required to strap their pipe!
There's only one strap visible in this whole mess!

George,

I think the bend was OK,
What I would've liked to check was if the cuts were made with a pipe-cutter and if there was a sharp edge inside.

Joe,

You mean this might be OK?
what about the size itself? This conduit is a bit smaller than our Electrical conduit and doesn't fit in the connectors quite right.

Bill

Bill:

Naturally, I would not permit the material you show, but would permit the same material if it was equal in the ID and had threads as any of the Table 4, Chapter 9 wiring methods.
