Repairing Ends of Threaded Rods
October 31, 2012
#1 --> I need to cut some 1/4", 5/16", & 3/8" threaded rods
When I do this, the ends get a bit messed up where I cut them
What's the best way to repair the ends - should I bite the bullet and get a tap & die set?
Previously, I've been placing nuts on either side of where I would be cutting, and then using the nuts as a way to sort of repair the threads but I would like a better way.
#2 --> Also, what's the preferred method of cutting these rods?
