What is the best way to do kick bends (offsets) when entering a box using 1/2 pvc pipe.I saw a job today where none were used and it just didn't look right.I always use ridged and emt in the plants so i was just wondering if someone could explain?

In the field I use a mapp torch. It takes a while to get use to it and not to scorch the pipe. I also use a heat gun, like you use on shrink wrap. This should work well for you without the expense of a heat blanket.
I was in a code class a couple of years ago with a UL rep - using a torch is definitely a NO for bending PVC....and I'm under the impression that heat guns are also on the 'out' list. Does anyone know a source for a definitive answer on this?
