I have always found a good set of snips just fine then a bit of smoothing off with a fine file...

Decent cable cutters, then a quick buzz on the bench grinder to get it all flat.

'kin pink

oh, on topic, i've got away with some good old side cutters, electrician style. then i bash the end(if coiled type) with blunt instrument to pre-compress the outer cable end to help eliminate outer cable shrinkage, which can put your indexing out over time, put right which adjuster barrel though :)

My personal method
Dremel with Diamond Cutting Disc stright through, then using the flat edge to grind it back to the dead flat (or angle if required). Very quick to do.

Clever use of a rotary tool. I've always found a good clean cut was possible from a good set of park cable cutters and a very quick and firm 'snap'. But I'm going to try my dremel next time. :wink:
