Re: Tack welding rebar

With all the discussions of how to put up antennas and towers EASIER, I can't get over how many of you are so dead set on hauling out all that heavy, expensive and hard to use equipment to weld the rebar. Also someone mentioned the unknown content of the melt (which I mentioned initially) he mentioned bed frames. I don't know if any of you have tried to make anything out of bed frames but when you drill it, some holes are easy to drill and others dull your drill bits very quickly.  Whenever I have to put a hole in it, I use a carbide milling cutter in my Bridgeport milling machine !

Bottom line, go the easy route and get some rebar wire ties and twist the stuff together. Save time and effort.
