Very impressive square knot. My mind is racking on how you did it.

Did you bend each rod individually around two different dies, or did you tack the two rods together and bend around the die together? I see what looks like a tack weld, but not sure before or after rolling.

Thanks! I did tack them together. Turned around a mandrel then offset the loops so the ends slid into them. I had a bit of trouble keeping the outside rod from rolling over the top, but a crescent fixed that. The tacks other than the one in the middle usually break because of the different diameters but it's doable.
