TIP - cleaning burs off of cut bolts.

Keith from Thunder Bay, Ontario has a great tip to help get the bur off of the end of a machine bolt when you cut it with a hack saw.

First thread a nut onto the bolt.

Then cut the bolt to length.

When you unscrew the nut, it will force the burr out.

Then a light stroke with a file will take off the sharp edge to the saw cut.
