Silly question/poll…

What tool do you guys use to cut bike brake/clutch cable neatly? Any tips?

Also, where did you find the little cable end caps to prevent fraying?

I've had moderate success with taping (to prevent fray) then cutting with HD wire cutters, but it ruins the cutters and smashes the cable.

Use a DREMEL TOOL w/a thin cut-off wheel to cut both cable & housing!
You can also put a dab of solder on the cable end to keep it from fraying...
