For what size EMT is this?
Thanks

Hi, if you click on the thing details page, you can see this is remixed from the 23.5mm version of the MPCNC or 3/4" EMT conduit, which what mine in constructed from. Enjoy your build!

Why not print a chain?

Drag chains are cheap and readily available and higher quality than can be printed on a Filament printer. Simply put, drag chains already exist, this bracket didn't. Now it does and I can move on with more important things.

There are plenty of drag chains available for download and the brackets are easy to mod as needed with a drill bit or design tweak. You can certainly print your own carrier if you choose.

It was just a personal choice. I don't extrude my own filament or manufacture my own electronics either. ;)
