Probably! But I use these in my Dremel for all thread. Makes short work of it and last forever

Dremel EZ456B Note: you need the correct mandrel for these (Mandrel)

edited again: here's a starter kit click
I have some of cutoff wheels, never thought of that. Might have to order that set though.... Thanks Barry!

I use to use the little brown cutting disc on my dremel and if you hold them or your mouth wrong they would shatter into a million flying shrapnel pieces (well maybe a dozen). I use a lot of allthread (AT) in my mounts and have to cut the excess off in some unusual positions. Like under the base or up on a mounting stand etc. Cutting one 3/8" AT sometimes I would break 4 or 5 of those to get the job done. With this style 1 disc may cut dozens of AT and a few bolts before it gets worn down too small to use. NEVER have had one shattered or come apart
