I have a big bedroom set that has almost done. The new hardware had the usual two sizes to choose from. The original and short screws in the new pack are too short. The long screws in the new pack are too long. So I went to the know all Google and started searching for info on how to cut a screw. It is so easy.
All you need is:
To cut a screw you find the coordinating size hole and open pliers so the the holes align. Most hardware screws are 8-32.
Screw in to the desired length.
When you have it at the correct length, squeeze the pliers closed. This part is hard and takes quite a bit of effort. Closing them clips off the unwanted length. Then you are done.
Now you have custom length screws. These pliers do not hurt the threads like other tools can. Every screw I have shorten have been used without any problems.
I hope everyone has a great week! Friday Updates will start back this week! Be sure to check back.
