This is a precision cutting device manufactured from high quality tool steel, which is machined to very close tolerances to cleanly cut screws and bolts to a specific size without damaging the threads. Simply insert the screw or bolt into the proper size threaded opening, set the length required, and strike the cutting blade with a hammer to cleave the bolt.
The cutting action is similar to a "guillotine" design and is quite effective. It will accommodate threaded products in sizes of 4-40, 6-32, 8-32, 10-32, 10-24, 1/4-20, and 1/4-28. It will cut steel, stainless steel, aluminum, brass, and even hardened bolts.
New safety features include locking blade, and larger grip to keep hand away from striking surface. 2 lbs (1Kg) shipping weight.
