Default Hose Sleeves

Is there a good way to cut these stainless hose sleeves to fit hoses I want tp cover? Hack Saw is not the best.

Wrap the point where you want to cut with vinyl tape and cut it with a dremel tool.

I wrap mine with duct tape and cut with a cutoff saw. If you use a cutoff wheel on a die grinder or a cutoff saw, go SLOW so you don't catch the braid and unravel it all over. Just eeeeeease through it.

Amen on both of those comments... make sure you wrap it tight.

Same here, I just wrap the part I need to cut with tape and cut it with a cut off wheel.
