How well do the el cheapo hammer drills with chisel bits do at cutting off
nuts and bolts? I've got some in very inaccessible places where I can't get
any tool but an air chisel of an electric hammer drill with chisel. Not
confident my air compressor will carry the air chisel. Bolts I need to cut
I tried cutting off the heads of the rear bumper (fender) bolts on my
Range Rover same problem no space to work in I used one of the big hammer
drills specifically designed for the job? - pure rubbish the only thing it
did was made my ears ring I ended up using a Dremel it took a while and 4
discs but did the job
AFAIK hammer drills are for cement. I wouldn't expect an air hammer to be
useful for such a large bolt either.
The Dremel tool is great. I've had one for 20 years. If your going to be
doing bigger jobs like this consider getting a bigger cut-off tool. I have
an air powered one and a battery powered spiral saw that can be used that
way but it doesn't have a guard. Right angle grinders can be used with a cut
off wheel too. IIRC RotoZip has a right angle attachment for their tool.
I reckon you are right on the money the descriptions of these tools are
vague http://www.machinemart.co.uk/product.asp?p 0212015 the one I was
trying was about twice the size of this beauty and still not man enough I
do have air and electric angle grinders and cutoff tools but when its a
really tight corner a little Dremel is a versatile little beast that can
save world of trouble
