How to Bend Steel Rod?

Answer

To bend steel rod, securely clamp two large-diameter bolts horizontally and about an inch apart in your vice jaws to create your own makeshift bender then place the end of the steel rod between the two bolts then pull the rod toward you, applying steady pressure to bend the rod and where you place your hands on the rod will help determine the shape of the bend and if your hands are close to the vice the bend will be tight and placing your hands farther away makes a larger and more gradual curve then heat the rod with a torch if it is too difficult to bend by hand or if the radius of the bend is too small and working with a longer section of rod will give you more leverage then heat carefully to avoid melting the rod-red hot is hot enough and apply the heat evenly to the inside of the bend and pull gradually to avoid cracking the rod as it bends then wear good quality gloves during this operation to avoid burning your hands finally cut the rod to the correct length after your bend is complete.
