Position the Safety Bar
Concrete is poured over rebar to create a slab -- rebar provides reinforcement.
A reciprocating saw has typically been used to cut rebar in the past but has been time-consuming and labor-intensive. Rebar was bent into shape with a manual bending tool. Today, a rebar cutting and bending machine eliminates much of the work and saves time. The machine can cut and bend up to number 5 rebar.
First, make sure the yellow safety bar is in the correct position to lock the blades out of the way.
