Electrical Conduit Mounting Tools for the DIYer

Electrical conduit is a metal tube that holds the delicate wires that conduct your home's electricity. Conduits are an incredibly important safety measure, and having the right tool for the mounting job is essential. A drill and a screwdriver are great gifts because they're necessary tools to secure the conduit to a wall or to feed it through the wall. If your home has plaster walls, a chisel lets you create a hidden channel to hide the conduit so it's not visible. Bending tools let you manipulate the conduit into fitting into any space, and a hacksaw will allow you to cut the conduit to the length you need.
