Using the No-Dog
How do I use my No-Dog Offset Level?

For Best Results:

  1. Position conduit in bender.
  2. Attach No-Dog to conduit at either end as shown below. Do not move No-Dog until all the bends are finished to insure that all bends will be on the same plane.
  3. Adjust bender pressure on conduit so conduit is snug yet loose enough to be turned with a pair of channelloks, pipe wrench or chain wrench.
  4. Turn conduit until No-Dog shows level.
  5. Bend conduit to desired angle.
  6. Release bender pressure.
  7. Turn conduit 180 degrees and position at next bend mark.
  8. Repeat steps 3 and 4.
  9. Make next bend.
  10. For additional bends on same plane, repeat steps 6, 7, 8, and 9.

NOTE: By treating the first bend as if it were the second bend, all bends following will be perfect even if the bender is not level.
