Cutting Rusted Toilet Bolts

Cutting rusted-tight toilet bolts using a Dremel rotary tool is the preferred method by plumbers and homeowners alike. Because toilet bolts are often located in tight quarters and impossible to cut with conventional tools like a hack saw or reciprocating saw, using a Dremel rotary tool is often the only solution.

What You'll Need:

Other Supplies
  • Eye protection
  • New toilet bolts
  • EZ402 EZ Lock Mandrel
  • EZ456 Cut-off wheel

Step-By-Step Directions
