you buy the BLACK IRON pipe at any box store.
it is best to get them threaded on each end so if you
need really long ones, you can string them together with couplings.
some brands of pipe have a tar-like paint on them. some have
just black paint.
the shiny slick metal EMT and galvanized pipe do not hold the clamp
ends firmly after some use and become useless.
the metal EMT couplings found in the electrical dept. are the best
as they don't have a coating and are thinner than the plumbing couplings.
there is no educational alternative to having a front row seat in the School of Hard Knocks.
