Where To Rent A Bolt Cutter?

Any recommendations on where I can rent a bolt cutter?

A bolt on my bike has gotten warped and/or stripped or something and the nut just spins and will not come off.

I looked at Home Depot's list and they do not show bolt cutters for rental.

Just get a regular metal hacksaw,It will cut it no problem.Usually you can cut half way then grab vise grips and it will snap off easy or you can buy the grinder like the poster above suggested.

Sadly I did this once for a bolt cutter :o
We rented a storage space and lost the combo for the padlock. The storage space manager charges $25 to bust the lock off, so instead we bought one from a nearby CT and returned it a couple hours later.
I dont usually do this, but there was no place to plug in my angle grinder, and I couldnt really see myself using this tool ever again.
Thanks for the memories, RFD.
Good-bye.

Thanks for the suggestion... I borrowed a hacksaw and cut through it in about half an hour.

Well the nut fit an 0.5" nut driver, but what slowed me down was the awkward space / angle and the fact that the bolt kept spinning with the saw.
