    All I've ever used was a dummy stick for rebar

    Or a pair of these for safety wiring bolts

    they loog great Frank. I couldn't believe the time saved by using the tool i bought: prior I had used pliars but when tying a house slab of mesh & footings I really enjoyed the "less wrist action" & the perfect twisting: mind you for fencing (mainly rural) I still use a hole in a 15 cm piece of rod to get that clean look.

    cheers

    Wow, very clever! I happen to have a Yankee Screwdriver that I think might do the same thing once I make a hook for it.

    Was thinking the same thing! Not that I tie any rebar any more but do wire tie some still.
