Super article !
Instead of the very expensive wire cutter
(which may not be used too often) an angle grinder with a steel cutting wheel to cut the S/S 1/19 or 7/19 - then a finishing grinding wheel to round the edge of the 90 degree cut, this helps a lot with both Norseman a Sta-Lock.
And it is the easiest way to cut standing rigging,
remember to tape the wire at the place you wish to cut and then cut through both the tape and the wire.
