Reply To: Heavier Conduit?

I am getting ready to build one, and was just wondering about the metal rigid conduit instead of the metal EMT. The metal rigid has threaded ends which are not really needed, but this means that the wall thickness is heavier than the metal EMT, so more rigid and less flexing if I wanted to build a bigger cnc work platform.

The rigid is more expensive, but if it makes it much more rigid, maybe worth it?

Just trying to research which way is the best way to build without the need to add support under the frame.
