    1/16 bend = 22.5 degrees and a 1/8 = 45 degrees. Available just about anywhere (SCH 40). Try rotating the slip tee and trimming the tailpiece first. You may not need them.

    Appliance Whip to Bath Exhaust Fan

    Although it is secured (stapled) within 12 inches of the connector, I'm not crazy about the routing of the NM-B to the exhaust fan as shown in the attached pic. Running the NM-B back over the top of...
