How to make stirrups with your manual stirrup bender
When pouring certain concrete structures, rebar is essential for maintaining proper tension and strength. Stirrups are used to ensure proper spacing and alignment of the long rebar rods used to reinforce columns and beams and help them resist shear forces to keep them from buckling.
How to use a manual rebar bender: it’s easy to form your own stirrups from rebar up to 12mm in diameter for this specific model. Read on, or watch the video “How to use a manual stirrup bender” below to learn how to use your manual stirrup bending machine.
1) Angle adjustment. Use a wrench to loosen the bolt on the base of the manual bar bender to slide the angle adjustment stop. When it is at the desired position, tighten the bolt again.
2) Length adjustment. To set the length of each side of your rebar stirrups, you have two adjustable stops on the swinging arm of the machine (one for length and one for width, or use only one stop for square stirrups). Use the attached wingnuts to loosen, slide the stop to the desired length, and tighten again.
3) Insert rebar. Being with the swinging arm at the 12 o’clock position (stationary arm at 6 o’clock). Thread the end of the rebar through the stirrup bender until it reaches the ruler stop. For long pieces of rebar, use the support on the stationary arm of the stirrup bender machine.
4) Bend stirrup. Grasp the end of the swinging arm firmly and swing it around towards you so that it bends the rebar until you reach the angle adjustment stop.
5) Repeat. Repeat this process as many times as necessary, using one ruler stop or alternating between two ruler stops, until you have your desired stirrup.
