cold by means of the bending table, as shown in figure 7-6. Typical stirrup tie shapes are shown in figure 7-7. Stirrups are used in beams; as shown in figure 7-8. Column ties are shown in position in figure 7-9.
When the bars have to be bent in place, a bending tool, like the one shown in figure 7-10, is effective. By placing the jaws of the hickey on one side of the center of the bend and pulling on the handle, you can produce a smooth, circular bend through almost any angle that is desired.
Make bends, except those for hooks, around pins with a diameter of not less than six times the bar diameter for No. 3 through No. 8 bar. If the bar is largerContinue Reading
