    Bending 8mm steel bar

    Need to put a 180 degree bend in 8mm steel rod on something like a 2" diameter. Best options??

    Thanks

    Heat up with an oxy and bend around something smaller than 2inch od pipe

    I usually tack weld a bit of pipe to a 10mm plate work bench I have and tack another piece very close to clamp the rod whilst bending. Hope that makes sense

    Yep works with the little burners. Take you time and heat it up evenly. I put mine in a vice and heated it up, then used a large ring spanner to slowly bend it around a form.

    Beware that is will discolour what you are bending

    Cold will be easy, we regularly bend up 12mm bar at work by hand and holes in stillages etc.
