How to use a pivot tube cutter
Step 1 - Check size
Make sure your tubing is between 3mm (0.1") and 16mm (0.6") in diameter, as the pivot tube cutter will only cut very small tubing.
Step 2 - Open cutter
Ensure the tool is used with the blade piece on the top. With one hand, squeeze the pivot end of the tool to open it.
Step 3 - Insert tube
Place the tube in the cutter, so that it is resting in the small jaw beneath the blade.
Step 4 - Make cut
Release the tool from your fingertips and the spring will force the blade into the tube.
Step 5 - Complete cut
Press down on the blade piece to make sure the blade has gone completely through the tubing.
