"Use conduit bender as a vise:"

From: Herbert wade Sparks (hwsparks@prodigy.net)

You can use a conduit bender to hold a piece of conduit when you cut it with a hacksaw. First lay the bender flat on the ground. Then raise the heel of the bender head enough to slip the pipe through the hole (most one-shot benders have these holes). Slide enough pipe out to where you are at a comfortable cutting position. Finally apply downward pressure on the bender (this can be done with your knee or you can use your hand or both) to keep the conduit steady during the cut. This works really well.
