"Shorten a conduit without damaging wires inside:"

From: Matt Brown rmbrown@stny.rr.com

Say you have a conduit that stubs up thru a slab and the wires have already been pulled but the pipe needs to be trimmed to length. Simply slide a smaller piece of conduit over the conductors, making sure it's small enough to fit inside the other pipe. Push it down past where you are going to make your cut. This "inner pipe" will serve as a guard against nicking as you work your way around the conduit with your saw.
