"Threading PVC Coated Conduit:"

From: Joe Scerbo scerjfpl@earthlink.net

If you've ever threaded pvc coated conduit with a porta-pony on a tri-vise you know how difficult it is to keep the conduit tight in the vise so not have the conduit spin in place causing you to scrap your $50 piece of pipe or spray a whole can of pvc coating on it.

Thus a solution, take two pieces of 90 degree angle iron cut about 12 inches in length, place one on the vise and place your conduit in the v and place your 2nd piece on top of your conduit next take your chain and hook it to the vise.
With this method you are sure to get clamping effect you need to hold the conduit in place while eliminating the teeth marks.
