Rent or borrow a rebar bender. It looks like a conduit bender with a
different head (or, a giant version of a semirigid coax bending
tool). Gives you plenty of leverage and grips the rebar conveniently.
I'm having a bunch of concrete work done for landscaping, and after
watching the guys bending and cutting rebar to go around curves and such,
I'm never bending rebar by hand or cutting it with a hacksaw again.
