Mechanical nut screws are the simplest and cheapest tools with which you can break down nuts from 3 to 27 mm in size. In the simplest case, the tool consists of three parts:
Mechanical nut cutter
Cases with eye under the nut;
Cutter (or chisel);
Threaded drive cutter.
The housing may have various structural solutions:

Annular (with eye) straight or inclined;
One-sided (with C-shaped grip) straight or inclined.
In the first case, the body is conventionally divided into two parts – the eyelet under the nut and the handle. A channel is drilled along the longitudinal axis of the handle, and a thread is cut into its upper part. In the lower part from the transition to the eye), a cutter is located in the channel, and a bolt with a spherical end is screwed into the thread. The bolt rests against the cutter and during rotation ensures its forward movement. In this case, the slow translational motion of the cutter is converted into a significant force (the same effect underlies the operation of mechanical jacks), which ensures the cutting of the nut with a cutter.

In the second case, the body instead of the eye has a C-shaped grip, which in some cases facilitates the work, allowing you to quickly put on and remove the tool from the nut.

Both types of housing can be straight or angled. The straight body is simple in design, but it is not always convenient for working with nuts protruding above the flat surfaces of a large area. In the angular case, the eye is located at a small angle to the handle, this solution facilitates the work on the destruction of the nut, protruding above large flat surfaces and in a confined space.

The cutter (or cutters) of the nut cutter is made of alloyed steel, often the working edges of the cutters to improve their performance and service life are made in the form of carbide
