I was working on a project where I needed to use bolts. The bolts I had in my supplies were about 1/2″ longer than what I needed. There is an easy way to cut a bolt.
There has been shortages of hardware and plumbing supplies due to the Covid Lockdowns. I found myself in the middle of a project and needed bolts about a half inch shorter than what I had.
I could make a run to the local hardware store, but they have gaps in their stock. I might not have been able to get the bolts I needed.
There is a simple trick for cutting bolts. Thread a nut past where you want to cut. When you remove the nut, it usually cleans the threads up neatly.
This can save a lot of aggravation when you need a shorter bolt and don’t want to run to the store or wait for an online order to be delivered.
