I'm asking as a general question since some people may not visit the tool section. And this is more of will it work question.
I bought HKP 24" bolt cutter on five 5-star reviews. It's around $55. I think it will cut to about 1/2" but that is maximum and the handles spread apart at 180 deg. I don't know if I will have any start leverage with the handles that far apart. I think it will grab 5/16" with the handles at 90 deg. I probably won't have any lock or chain half inch thick, but anybody try to start the cutter with the handles at 180 deg?
Thanks in advance.
