To shorten a long bolt or stud, such a task is not so rare encounter tinkerers. In order not to damage the grip of the thread, I suggest to use a simple tool, which is a metal strip 5-10 mm performed in her screw holes from M3 to M16. Now with the help of a locknut the bolt will sit securely in the fixture, and so it is in a vise.
