you can just just a hacksaw and clean it up with a file, however those tools are good but expensive. Another thing to consider is those cutters are in standard pipe diameters (10mm, 15mm, 22mm). so make sure you get the one that fits the pipe, you can get some adjustable ones that are a bit more expensive but fit a range of pipes.

Use a torch or sandpaper to clean the cut after you use a hack saw. You can't get much better than that without a laser cutter.

I like the color scheme of Noctua fans. Deal with it. Forget about the bad memories of the past.

Hm... Do you run over the tube with the firetruck and sand down the tube with the brick?

Yeah I know. You dont cut acrylic with a flashlight... Lol. Im just wondering how you can pull that off without melting the majority of the tube...

Jigsaw or dremel like others have said.  Then sand/file the end of the tube down to a smooth surface.  Depending on the push fittings you're using you'll have to file around the tube to get it to fit.
