Before you proceed, you want to be sure that the rebars are in good enough shape or condition and have the desired length. Hence, the importance of getting them ready. Follow the steps below to prepare your rebar for bending by hand.
Clean the bars to eliminate dirt and rust
To achieve a clean and perfect circle, rid the rebar of dirt and rust. Dirty or rusty rebars may not only affect the bending process. They may also be hazardous to you.
Cut the bars to the desired length
You must cut the bars into the required length/diameter before bending to avoid an oversized or undersized diameter after turning the bar.
Once the bars are clean and at the required length, we can bend them.
Cleaning the rebar to remove any dirt or rust
Proper cleaning of the rebar is essential before bending to ensure a smooth process and to maintain the strength of the material. Dirt and rust can weaken the bond between the rebar and concrete, reducing the overall effectiveness of the reinforcement
