Bolt CutterIt's a tool made like a pair of scissors. Rather heavy duty, used to cut chain, locks, bolts, ect. Answer 2A bolt cutter is not a scissors. Scissors make a shear cut, have the blades inverted to each other and work with a simple pivot. Bolt cutters typically have their blades directly opposite each other and they close together. They have long handles and short blades, with compound hinges to maximize leverage and cutting force.

How does a rounded nut splitter work?

I can't find a non-copyright picture but I'll do my best...Basically you'll see it looks like a ring spanner with a cutter coming into the round part- the letter O in my little drawing is the nut. []===|=(>O)Unlike a spanner you pick one which is larger than the nut to leave room for the cutter =>. Pop the ring over the nut, line up the cutter so it's more or less vertical on one face. The other end of the handle has a bolt []=== running up the middle which presses against the cutter at the point shown by "|"in my drawing, but is not attached to it so it doesn't try to turn the cutter, it just presses it. You just keep turning the bolt until the cutter splits the nut. Never fails.
