If you can't find the perfect depth of S.S. bolt from a specialty hardware supplier, and you want to cut the bolt 1/4" shorter, and you don't have a tap & die set then try this.
First fully thread on matching two nuts. Cut the bolt short. Use a fine triangular file to round over the cut end just a bit and de-burr the threads. Then remove the two nuts as one to restore the threads.
