    3/8\" All-Thread

    Talking with Kal and Moses, they also use a ton of 3/8" all-thread rod. Here is a link to a cutter that is one of the slickest, most time-saving tools I own.

    It needs NO deburring after cutting so the nuts go right on. No power,no problem. Don't want to lug around your chop saw. This is THE ticket.

    Leo Pirito left Mupro NA to work at ARGCO with Jim Stoddard. I know they are updating their website so if you have any issues contacting them, email leo@argco.com

    Kal, Matt loves this tool. He can cut the rod in 1/8" increments if needed.

    Hey Paul

    Quite expensive though......? If it saves time I guess it'll work, but what about burrs?

    use the force, Luke...

    seems when I have a job involving threaded rod, it's up on the scaffolding or scissor lift. It's nice to have a quick easy un-emcumbered way to cut rod while you are up.

    With this cutter you can screw the rod into the anchor then cut to length, if you chose.

    I imagine these REMS jaws fit cord or cordless press tools.

    REMS also have a 1/2" threaded rod jaw as well as wire cutters.

    Use the same tool to cut the rod and press the fittings!

    Check with Leo for these REMS tools also.

    I use a small Dewalt angle grinder

    with a metal cut off blade.

    Lite and quick if you do not mind the sparks.

    Thank's Paul for the link, we will be ordering 1 this week.

    It was a great pleasure to meet you and Matt. Me and Kal really enjoyed very much your and Matt company, maybe one day we will do it again, either in our neck of woods, or in yours.

    I thank the entire staff at Lochinvar for making our stay very pleasurable, and memorable

    .

    I love that tool! We don't use enough threaded rod to justify it. I always use my 4 1/2" gringer to cut rod. I never have a problem threading the nuts.

    rod cutter

    I have used a hacksaw, abrasive chop saw, sawszall, and angle grinder. The rod cutter beats them all, and is the Safest tool by far.
