Cutting Rebar when Building in Thailand.
Buy a steel cutting saw before the job starts.
If you are an owner builder you should buy a steel cutting saw before the job starts.
An angle grinder is necessary also.
If you do not have permanent access to an electric steel cutting saw you may have holdups on the job. These holdups are costly.
If you are using the worker’s saw then that is okay but they might not like you using it and if the saw decides the die on your job you might be up for the bill to get it fixed.
You can buy a new saw, they are not expensive in Thailand, and sell it again as a second hand saw if need be.
The saw will take a wood cutting blade for when assembling the formwork for concrete.
A typical carpenter’s circular saw is also a necessary.
I also used an electric chain saw which I had from previous jobs.
The steel for the roof structure and the rebar are all cut with the same saw.

To make life easier it is best to have a strong bench to set up the bending jigs.
