What is the minimum size EMT to hold 3 #2's, 3 # 10's, and a #6 ground? All wire is THHN. I'm too lazy to dig out my code book. Thanks.

Don't matter. Take the sum of the cross section of the conductors, and look up the allowable fill of the conduit, in sq. inches. That will be on a chart in the cook book.

Nope, no nipple. 1 1/4 was my guess, but I'll do the damn math. Thanks anyway.
