    Removing Diving Board Bolts

    We just took out a very old diving board, but now have the four bolts sticking out of the concrete patio. Any suggestions for removing them? A saws-all has been recommended, but I'm hoping to get them as flush to the ground as possible.

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    An angle grinder will allow you go cut/grind them off flush to the concrete.

    If you're only going to use it once...
    Or if you want it to last, spend $100 and get a Milwaukee or Dewalt one.

    Get a 1/8" thick cut-off wheel to cut the bolts, then a thicker grinding wheel to grind them flush.

    I have that same angle grinder and use it all the time, I have had it 4 years. Pretty surprising how long they will last.
