Does it cut clean enough to thread on nut. Thanks

Asked by Plumber July 20, 2017
1
Answer

Hi Plumber and thank you for the question! This tool is angled and will give you the closest cut to flush that you will see with any of our tools. It does leave a small nub on the metal. (No such thing as a flush cutter for metal) You may still need to do the usual tricks to get it to thread on the nut.

Everyone needs on in the car tool box
Extemely high quality small cutting pliers that are based on bolt cutter concept. These are not bolt cutters. I played around with them and cut through an old antenna. 4mm hardend steel. No way I could bend it by hand. Pliers took about 5 tries to cut bites into the steel but they worked. This will cut through any fence like a hot knife. Will be quite handy in an emergency.

This is one of the easiest two thumbs up I could give. The Knipex Cobolt bolt cutters, despite being 10” long, seem only to be limited by the capacity of their jaws, which can accommodate up to 1/4” thick objects. Remarkably, they achieve up to 40x leverage while delivering a straight cutting force centered on their target through an ingenious hinged mechanism allowing both blades to pivot up and clamp down in concert, cutting anything from a piece of paper up to 4.2mm piano wire, 1/4 bolts and rods, etc. These bolt cutters are possibly unmatched in quality and performance in their size range, and come with a lifetime warranty from a respected brand. Therefore I feel they are a solid value and well worth the price range at Home Depot.

This is an expensive product but I don’t think they are overpriced. I have broken quite a few Bolt cutters big and small but these feel almost over engineered. I will update if I ever break them.
