Like others I have always used a nut to clean up threads after a cut.

I wonder how that cordless tool holds up to Grade 8 bolts? ;-)

We use mostly "yellow" tools at work and have a few of the DeWalt cutters. They are used for cutting allthread. They are good for 1/4-1/2" mild steel and max 3/8" SS. Primary use is trimming allthread on trapeze hangers. Our work is electrical and HVAC construction and we don't have a need to trim Grade 8.

I agree with using a nut or putting the die on backwards so it will cut as it is removed.

I also suggest cutting threaded-components with a CUT_OFF wheel. There is MUCH less risk of disturbing the threads with a cut-off wheel.

If the threads do get buggered.... simply use bench-grinder to LIGHTLY touch up the circumference (of the end) of the threaded-component... a grinder is less likely turn over the threads than a saw.

I usually thread TWO nuts onto the bolt, lock them at the 'cutting' spot,hold in vice, use thin blade in angle grinder. The hold bolt by head, unscrew both nuts, maybe 'ouchup' the trheads on a buffing wheel, maybe.

Yes, you can do the same with a nut.
