Introduction: What is a Bolt, What is a Tight Space and Why Would You Need to Cut One?

As shown in the picture on the left, a bolt is a threaded rod used to hold two objects together. The top of the bolt contains threads that fasten to a nut, which then fastens to another object. A bolt also has an end that protrudes out of the nut; this is known as the head of the bolt, illustrated above. The head of the bolt is usually larger than the rest of the bolt and serves as a way to secure and hold the bolt in place.
Bolts provide an easy and secure way to hold two objects together. Because they are very small, they can be placed in areas with little space available. The bottom of a typical bolt contains a pointed tip known as the point; this point can easily slide through two objects, allowing for secure installation of two objects without having to drill a hole. The point of a bolt also makes it easy to place the bolt in a small space. In addition, the fastening properties of bolts make them an invaluable tool. However, they are not without their flaws: they rust easily and also can be difficult to remove, if necessary.

What Kind of Tools You’ll Need for Cutting Bolts in a Tight Space

You’ll need to have a pair of bolt cutters or similar, to be able to cut the bolts in the tight spaces, as shown on the right. These are often referred to as “jaws” of a bolt cutter. This is where you tighten the bolt that you are cutting and lock it into position, so that your cut will not shift when you force it through a joint. The bolt cutter shown also has a loop that you can use to attach it to your belt or you can hold onto it. Passing a bolt cutter around tight corners can be very difficult; that is why they are equipped with swiveling jaws.
Make sure you can use your bolt cutter before you begin. If you are unsure, it is a good idea to practice on some scrap metal, before you cut into something important. Do not try to force the jaws closed if they do not move very easily.
To get a good grip on these bolt cutters, you’ll need a leather glove or heavy work glove with an extended cuff that has an elastic strip across the wrist. That way you can wrap the glove around the bolt cutter and keep it from slipping.

What Safety Precautions Should be Taken When Cutting Bolts

Remember that you are going to be cutting a bolt, which means you will be putting it under stress. That is why it is important to use safety precautions. If you aren’t skilled at doing so, make sure to practice on some pieces of scrap before going into your job with the bolts. This will give you practice, and the chances are that you will not have a problem with it. The safety precautions you should take when cutting bolts include:
1. Wear protective eyewear.
2. Keep a fire extinguisher nearby.
3. Have something underneath to catch the bolt when it falls, to avoid injury and damage to the floor or flooring.
4. To prevent burns and cuts, don’t wear loose clothing or jewelry when cutting bolts; tie back long hair and try to avoid getting in a position where you could accidentally cut yourself on something metal such as a wheel or handle on a toolbox.
5. To avoid getting cut when the bolt falls off the tool, hold it with a rag or something that is not your bare hand.
6. Always use a cutting lubricant when cutting bolts; it will make the job much easier, and less likely to cause an injury.
