Re: Cutting control cable

From the answers I see popping up, I think there is some uncertainty about which type of cable you are asking about. Is it multi-strand braided stainless control cable, or is it a center wire push-pull cable with a spiral wound sheath?

I need to shorten an armored cable, like a bicycle cable. What's the best way to cut the armor without damaging the strands?
