[Manually]Bend rebar by hand – Thinner rebar for smaller projects

In fact, you can bend rebars manually. It is not that hard as you imagine. First, you need to find two steel pipes, a short one and a long one. Secondly, you should encase it inside two pieces of metal piping. Next, thread the steel bar through both pipe pieces and let them intersect at the point where you want the bend to occur. Last, you need to lay the first piece of pipe on the ground and expose the portion of the rebar where you want to bend. Lift the long pipe up from the floor. Here you are, you will get rebar bent.

But please wear personal and protective equipment if you need to bend rebars by hand. And we also suggest choosing thinner rebar, such as a 1/4-inch design, for smaller projects where users will need to bend this steel into different kinds of shapes. Tips: You should never heat rebars.
