Pipe cutter works good, that's what I used but you will have to flair the cut end back out. The pipe cutter will crimp it down as it cuts. I used a wire cutter to flair the end back out which in turn produced tiny metal shavings. I didn't do a good job of cleaning all of these tiny shavings out of the tube and some got lodged in between my swash ball and the swash plate which caused enough resistance to burn up my servo. So make sure you blow Everthing out really good with canned air or an air compressor. Food for thought...
