Stud cutters are tools that are used for the cutting of metal stud frames, but can also be used for other purposes such as cutting threaded rods. The stud cutters we stock typically cut threaded rods of varying thread sizes. This is usually from around M6 to M10, although please check the product specification of the tool before purchase as some stud cutters will only cut certain sized threaded rods. An rod with an M6 thread is approximately 6mm in diameter, and a rod with an M10 thread is approximately 10mm in diameter.
- Choosing the right battery: Cordless (or battery powered) tools have a variety of chemical battery types; Li-ion is the latest technology, prior to that it was Ni-MH and Ni-Cad was the original. The higher the Ah (Ampere hours) the longer the interval between charges; the fewer times you recharge a battery the longer it will last. Some cordless tools can also come without batteries - sometimes referred to as naked, bare units or body only. These tools are supplied without a battery or charger and more often than not without any accessories; as a result they are significantly cheaper in price.
