How to attach rebar handle to forging stock

I am curious how to attach a rebar handle to steel in my forge, I think I would rather do that then tongs. And how long is a good length. But like like the forum says I'm a Newbie.

wire feed welder. I find 3' to be a good overall length when I work.

a small buzz box welder (arc). 3ft rod with a small curl on the other end. it helps with orientation in the know curl up, top, other side down. use 7014 arc rod as they work well. bevel the rebar for welding. if you are using cable, wire the cable tight, taper the rebar and drive it in the bundle, and tack weld both ends. no welder,wire everything tight,rebar billet, all of it, and don't spare the wire. if it is a flat stock billet, flaten out the rebar and wire to the bottom of the stack, wire tight. you don't get too many chances when wire is the only thing holding the billet together.

Thanks, I was hoping it wouldn't require welding, but oh well.

Read Raymonds answer again. Also, you can flaten the rebar and rivit it to the stock with one or two piened steel pins.
