Abrasive cut off wheel

Lance,
Just got through making some AN12 hose oil cooler lines for my STI and used a peanut gridner with a 3 inch cut off wheel. Wrap the area to be cut with packing tape (or some other strong tape) - the cut off wheel makes a nice clean cut - but lots of debris in the hose. Blew it out and washed it out with solvent and paper plugs till it came out clean.
You might be able to do it with a dremel - but I think you will go through a least a couple of cut off wheels.RegardsRegards,
Bill

Thanks,
Lance
