Cable cutter for 3/32" cable?

What cable cutter do you like to cut the 3/32" cable?

I don't want to use linesman pliers or wire cutters because I am afraid that if I flatten it out and it frays I won't be able to get the ends into the ferrules.

Number17 gives good advice. I messed around with other tools for a couple years. Night and day difference. They cut with ease and leave a perfect end.

Re: Cable cutter for 3/32" cable?

I ordered them. That's funny limbhnger10...because I have the Park Tool bicycle cable cutters but I didn't want to ruin them on the thick 3/32 cable. I ride mostly road these days and run marathons.

Thank You everyone for your help.

17's pic of cable cutters work great. Also, if you have bolt cutters, it will work good. Whatever you do, only use linemen pliers/dikes on wire and cable cutters for cable. If you use one for the other, they will not last long/be ruined.

I'll keep my money, guns, ammo, and health care; you can keep your change

When I made my catch pole I used a pair of vice grips that have a wire cutter feature.It cut 3/32 very clean.

There are wire cutters and there are cable cutters. There is a reason they are designed differently and distinguished from each other.
Use the right tool or you'll wear them out quickly.
