Good tip for shortening screws. I do a similar routine, but with one minor difference. I try to use a higher grade of steel nut than the screw/bolt is made of, and unless there is a specific reason, I try to stick with a high strength carbon steel nut when I shorten stainless steel screws and bolts. as this helps to avoid galling and the male threads always look sharp (pun intended).
