Cut Off The Head

As you get good with the Dremel you can make some amazing bolt cuts with threads that work as good as factory. Of course you could use a hack saw too but the Dremel is nice.

I use a nut to help guide the cut. Screw the nut onto the bolt and place the "outer" face where you want the cut. A second nut can be used to lock the guide bolt. Then guide the cutoff wheel along the face of the nut. The nut helps to keep the threads from deforming.
