Good day everyone, I'm Joshua Clement, and this is how to cut off a bolt head. A lot of times when you're doing some remodeling, one of those bold heads gets stripped out and you're gonna have to cut that using a saws all. This is one of the fastest ways to go ahead and cut that bolt head off there. You want to make sure that you're using a metal blade instead of a wood blade. If you try to use a wood blade on there, it's just gonna burn that blade up. When someone sinks a bolt into a piece of wood or a piece of metal, it runs flush with whatever you've sunk it into, unless you're using a washer. Now, keep in mind that if you're cutting this bolt head off it's going to damage the surface that the bolt is connected to, because the blade has to get down flush enough to the object to be able to cut it off of there. When you start cutting, you don't want to go straight down because that's not going to get deep enough to take the head completely off. You've got to angle it back into the wood a little bit and take a chunk of that wood out. That way you can get down to the threads to be able to get that bolt head off there. Knowing how to cut the heads off the bolts allows you to be able to pull the bolts out and get them out of your way so you can continue working without having something sticking out where you're trying to work. Thank you all for watching, and good luck with this project.
