Kind of a strange situation. I am wanting to make a pair of "tactical bolt cutters". the idea is, it would be useful to entry teams.
The idea is a standard pair of bolt cutters modified with a pair of titanium solid bar handles (with a pry bar on one of the handles).
Problem #1: I need to attach titanium to high carbon steel jaws (no further information on the composition).
Problem #2: I am planning on machining an AR400 axe blade on the outside of one of the bolt cutter blades.
I have the capability to machine an adaptor, and think I may have to do that with the titanium/carbon steel union, but would prefer a weld.
I have a Dynasty 200DX and a Northern Tool MIG welder to attempt this task. Any advise would be appreciated.
