    Sawing Threaded Rod Axially

    If you try to axially cut the thread off of a piece of threaded rod using a horizontal bandsaw, the blade will tend to wander. This is because one side of the blade is cutting a lot of metal and the other side has none. The solution presented here puts enough metal on both sides of the blade so it cuts true.

    Interesting idea Rick. I think that if you made your slot where the red line is and drilled and tapped the side where the slot is now, you could put a screw in and use that as an adjustable guide. I have used a V block and clamp a few times to do this, but it can damage the threads..
