I need some decent cable cutters?
Can anyone reccomend anything .... Do you really need to spend £20 for decent ones?

I use Park...and I try not to never ever never buy cheap tools, pretty much always a false economy....but no doubt I will be proven wrong shortly.

Been using VAR for 6 years cutting hundred of cables. Think they were about 17 quid. Not a bad investment!

I've got Park cutters, I'll find you some old cable and you can go for a test chop tomorrow if you like :twisted:
