Braided stainless hose is pretty easy to work with, provided the hose is of good quality like our top-notch Goodridge stuff. Wrap the hose ends with a few turns of masking tape (electrical tape works OK), and cut straight through the hose. The tape should keep the braids from unraveling, whether you use a hacksaw or a cutoff wheel. We had good results using a hacksaw, but make sure to install a sharp new fine-tooth blade before attempting to saw through the braids.
