Smile Make ubolts with threaded rod

I got an education on this last year. Thanks for all who replied.

Thought I would I may add a step to the process. First this is my shop drawing for a shop die that will fit my shop press. Picture 1

1/2" - 16 threaded rod.

Problem: - Threaded rod cracks when it's bent into U.

My thought is to cut threaded rod into 10" pieces. Then Place end of rod into lathe chuck and turn off the threads in middle of rod for about 5 inches, or so.

Would this be a solution?
