Hi all, after recently being able to test out my bar10 in a friends backyard, it turned out that my Rapax rms 2+J spring was shooting too hot for the UK, between 2.6 and 2.7J. I decided to get a cheapish cable cutter (link) today as many on this and other forums have suggested for cutting springs. I severely underestimated the strength of the spring, however, as the cutter bent on the first go, making it useless. Does anyone have a recommendation for a tool that can cut through this? I have thought of getting a dremel but it seems a bit overkill/expensive just for cutting a sub £20 spring. I also can't think of any future maintenance chores around the house where it would be useful to justify it.

So based on what a typical UK household might have or have easy access too if needed in descending order of preference.

Dremel
Angle grinder
Pliers with a good cutting section
Hacksaw (hack saw will be rough though and likely need a lot of sanding to make it cleaner and less likely to damage anything inside)

If you don't have any if the above try to borrow one of someone.
