"Slip joint pliers used to ream conduit:"

From: Bill Butler

An excellent way to ream the end of cut conduit is by using the uninsulated handles of a pair of slip joint pliers (generically called Channellocks). For smaller sizes, both handles fit in and the grip pattern "files" the burrs. For
larger conduit, open the handles so that one handle rubs each side of the conduit. Even with a crooked cut
(Heaven forbid), the edge comes out nice and smooth.
