Re: Cutting and bending rebar

For short pieces you can't get a good grip on for bending cold, heat them to red heat in a forge (preferably) or with the rosebud tip on an oxy-acetylene torch. That makes the steel a lot softer, and it bends easily. If you've got an anvil, that's what the little round hole is for.
