Re: pulling string through conduit

And the name comes from an earlier method. Before shop vacs became available, a small rodent and a piece of cheese were used for this purpose. Presumably as long as nobody from PETA is around the same method will still work.

and if the mouse doesn't come out you can use the other method for getting the string through. that was a CO2 cartridge with a nose cone and the "flyline" was tied to the nose cone. fit into a "gun" of sorts, point into the conduit and "fire in the hole" it would shoot half way across the parking lot when it came out the other side or 30 ft in the air!
Ahh, those were the daze, 4 - 6 inch conduit and 500MCM copper cables... and lots of lubricant. :-)

What does PETA care? We don't eat rats. Just almost everything else. (People Eating Tasty Animals.)
The freaks you're thinking of are PeTA; not to be confused. :)

You might want to rethink that. According to the authors of "Lobscouse and Spotted Dog" "Bakers" (as the Royal Navy used to refer to rats used for culinary purposes in Nelson's day) proved to be quite tasty.
