A stub up bend is a 90º bend near the end of the conduit. 3) Subtract the take-up height. The radius of the bend will add extra length to the bent end of your conduit. 4) Line the arrow mark on your bender to this measurement. Place your conduit on the floor. 5) Press down on the foot pedal to bend the conduit. Your foot should provide most if not all of the pressure. 6) Confirm the bend with a spirit level (recommended).
