i got an employee there to get me a test 1" EMT pipe (which wasnt tested before) and he tightened the heck outta the bolt onto the pipe! i then whipped out a screwdriver (yeah i had one on me) and tightened it further. sucka held!
bought the 2 90° corners, 2 "T" joints, and 4 0° fittings i needed for $18. this place is pratically around the corner from my home so its no big deal to drive here.
heres 2 pics from inside the place:
its a moderate sized warehouse (best estimate is 1/4 the size of any Home Depot). i was in complete shock as to where this place was located.... RIGHT NEXT DOOR TO AN OUTDOOR SWAP MEET. strangely enough, the swap meet used to be adrive-in....COINCIDENCE?!?!? not srure
