I will try and keep this as simple as possible. I’m running 2 - 2.5 “ and 2 - 2” EMT coming out of a 12x12 box above the ceiling 60” with a 6 “ kicked 90. When I proceeded to bend the 2” conduit with same exact measurements the KICK angle was nowhere near matching the 2.5s. How can I match the angle of 2.5s?


The radius of the two 90's is different - are you using that somehow to bend the kick? If the length of pipe after the kick and the distance of the kick are the same, so is the angle. If, however, you are trying to bend different amounts of kick into the pipe the angle will change with each pipe.
