In our latest issue of SITE TIPS, Rob Koci demonstrates how to cut a bolt with a hacksaw when you don’t have a vise handy.

It seems obvious when you watch this video, but it’s a handy tip to know.

Also in this video, Rob shows how to use clamps to assemble hard-to-hold vertical members for cross pieces.
