    I've been reading on here 4 ever, but to search you have to sign up so here I am. I have bought the clearo's . I love em' with the exception of the cracks. So Here's my question, I got my 3ml BD syringes last night and a cheap tube cutter at a home hardware shop, but it only seems to smush and score tube not cut it. Is there a better cutter or way to cut them. I like the way they are working so far but looking for easier. Any advise appreciated!

    Hopefully someone in this section can help. Meanwhile, get 4 more non-spammed posts or replies in New Members and an hour later you will be able to ask elsewhere on the forum (though I am not sure which section is for atomizer/cartomizer mods)

    I use the cutter to score the tube then use a box knife to cut the tubes out.

    I leave the plunger in the syringe to support the tube and use a razor blade to cut it.

    Remember that the plunger end of the tube doesn't get cut. Just trim off the finger tabs. Also, I would suggest that you cut the tube a tad long for your first couple attempts.

    You can trim it down or sand it smaller but you can't put the plastic back on.

    Thanks all for your help, I actually have cut both ends and seems to be no problem so far. I got two tubes from each syringe, and smoothed down the ends with my electric finger nail manicure set. It left the ends more opaque than clear but oh well it's working. I was just hoping for a less time consuming way to cut the tubes.
