I am building this workbench and I have decided to recess the nut and washer inside the top of the bench, so that I won't cut/scape myself while I'm leaning up against it.
Now my issue is that the rod is sticking out with sharp edges and needs to be ground down to stay inside the 1" recess I bore in.
My question is, what is the best tool (preferably a Dremel bit) to grind down this 3/8" metal rod. The most I'd need to grind is about 1/2" of length.
I was at the hardware store and someone recommended a diamond coated bit used to grind stone, but it didn't do anything for the metal.
Attached is a picture of what I am doing. Forgive the roughness, I still haven't sanded/beveled the edges.
