What is a threaded rod cutter used for?
|Threaded rod cutters are designed to cut soft steel.|
|They are not designed to cut plastic, hardened steel, stainless steel rods or un-threaded rods.|
|Threaded rod cutter dies have either a single slot, two slots, or three slots. They are generally interchangable and most models will include a selection of slot sizes.Some three slot dies can cut four sizes of rod: the M6, M7, M8 and M10. These have diameters of 6, 7, 8 and 10mm respectively. There is a 6, 8 and 10mm slot. The 7mm rods are cut in the 10mm slot.|
| Threaded rod cutters can generally cut up to 6.6 soft steel: 60 kg/mm².
|The rating 6.6 soft steel: 60Kg/mm2 refers to the rod’s tensile strength. Tensile strength is the amount of stress/pressure the material can withstand before it breaks. The various types of steel usually measure in between 40-80kg/mm2.|
