Cutting The Studs

Silicon bronze threaded rod is expensive but silicon bronze carriage bolts are cheap. Simply install two nuts onto the bolt and clamp only one of the nuts in the vice while tightening the other back onto it. This essentially locks the bolt into the vice so you can cut it without it spinning or moving.
