These hickies have been field tested tough by my local customers. I provide these tools for custom rebar installers who work with swimming pools and spas mainly.
- the A30 Hickey Bar (30" handle") If the handle is too long for close in work just shorten it with a hack saw.
- NOTE: NOT FOR GRADE 60 REBAR
The 30" handle is for general rebar bending for concrete work. . The handle is 3/4 tubing. It weighs about 3 1/2 lbs to 4 lbs. The head is made of 3/8" plate with threaded hardened studs pressed and then welded in. I paint the heads red to reduce the effects of corrosion and to make it easier to keep track of on site. Normally I sell these tools in pairs. The 30" handle allows much great leverage in bending and works well where tight places aren't a problem. Of course, if the handle is too long just adjust its length with a hacksaw.
These bar benders can also be repaired with a grinder and welder when one the the studs wears off or breaks under load. I keep the extras here if you need any. I believe I make the only repairable-in-the-field hickey bar there is.
