Hi guys,

Basically I lost a 2m length of stainless steel rebar I had stashed. I was going to use it to prop up an arbour to prevent the uprights from rotting. I.e drilling into the timber and hammering in the rebar and then setting it in concrete.

Can't get hold of stainless steel at short notice. Only mild steel. I'm thinking 8mm mild steel rebar would take a hell of a long time to rust out right? Not sure though. What do you reckon?

If you want to bodge it that's up to you. First heavy wind and your arbour will take off. Mild steel 8mm is what it says on the tin...'mild  steel'.  :;):   :)

it'll rust and discolour as well maybe few coats of hammerite and as sean says a L bend in the bottom before concrete would be an idea
