I'm looking at replacing a 30A feed to my garage subpanel with 60A.
I'm killing two birds with one stone here: I need to add a couple of
240V feeders to the garage, and a pair of 20A appliance feeds to the
kitchen. Trust me, it's the simplest solution.
Not being too crazy about having that hefty a nonmetalic feeder, I'm
looking into running a raceway.
For the amperage and the distance, I calculated that I need 3 #4 wires
for current and a #10 ground wire.
Based on 25% fill ('cuz if I can do it faster, it's worth the extra
cost), I figure I'll need 1-1/4" conduit.
The run is such that I can use pre-formed fittings for the run, and I'm
not required to use any intermediate boxes.
I'd like to use pull elbows at either panel end, and another in the
garage where it penetrates the wall to the house. However, neither The
Borgs, MSC-Direct, nor McMaster-Carr seem to carry pull elbows in sizes
over 3/4" for EMT.
Is that something that simply doesn't exist? What alternatives should I
I've bent EMT in my day. I just would perfer NOT to.
