I agree. I had a bunch of emt left over from a job I did so I just kinda started going to town. I probably had about 80 percent of the pipe bent the first day. The second day I welded up about 60%. The 3rd day I was sick as a dog. It was almost like having a bad hangover. I just assumed I was sick and took a couple of days off. that weekend I went back at it and finished all but 2 of the pipes between the top and bottom. that night and all day the next day I was sick as a dog again. since then I have spent the rest of the time grinding it down and and touching up some welds. I hate grinding so usually after about 20 minutes I get fed up and dont mess with it for a couple of weeks.
If i had to do it all over again I would have went with some 1/2" rigid since I have a pipe bender for that or just not messed with it at all. Still I probably only have about $20 in it.
Apply dirt liberally, rinse and repeat
