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
Bending Guidelines and Techniques
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 larger
