A Tool for Shortening Screws

stepped_screw_plate20090224

I like to use socket head cap screws.  Rather than keeping an expensive assortment of different lengths on hand, I usually stock a smaller selection and just cut a longer screw down to the length I need.   Frank Ford has a great idea for making that process easier.  His step plate makes consistent length screws and it fixes any thread damage done by the hacksaw.
