Some people use a Dremel, I just go with a good hacksaw.

Either way you'll have to file the cut end a little to clean it up.

I use a pvc cutter. Altought my dad says its not so good for the blade, if cuts an nice clean edge. It does make a tiny dent into the brass howerver, buts its no big deal.

I use a steel tube cutter. No sanding needed, and it works pretty fast.

I use a 35,000 RPM dremel with a diamond cutting wheel. Cuts through brass like warm butter, but it gets HOT. Use gloves. Oh, and theres always the risk of cutting off a finger. I tried hacksawing it but just couldn't do it very easily, I think my hacksaw blade is designed for wood or something.

Try going at it with a jnr hacksaw. for some reason i found it goes through brass much better than the full side hacksaws ( could just Be me!)

Hacksaw.... I use a metal cutter. It also cuts pvc. And someone said earlierm, if I know what you are talking about it is also made for copper and brass. Do you like clap it on and spin the whole thing around the pipe and tighten it more?
