    Default bending S.S. rod with heat ?

    guys,
    is it ok to use oxy-acetylene to heat up 1/2" thick S.S. 316 rod and bend it 90* ?
    i have done this with steel rod before, but never stainless steel.
    thanks

    Sure, unless it needs to be used in some highly corrosive environment. It could be a little better if you heat, bend, reheat and quench it quickly. What you making?

    thanks for the help... not sure where its going, but some sort of bracket type thing.... boss ran it by me before i left work today....

    im assuming the discolored area, from the heat, will polish/buff out ?
