I just reread SRCNET’s post and figured out where the cutting question came from. I missed that the first time.
I am undecided about stainless vs EMT. I am not sure if the stainless that I found is suitable and I cannot measure it to confirm that I am ordering the correct printed pieces. Also, the 3/4 EMT is MUCH less expensive and I am beginning to think that keeping my initial investment at a minimum in case I need to go in a different direction may be a good idea.
Thanks for the input.
