Got a new tool the other day, so stoked on finally being able to cut steerers at home. I know that some folks will argue that they "mushroom" the end of the steerer, but I have yet to ever have any issues and I used to use one of these all the time when I was assembling custom bicycles for a living.

Granted they do work better on alloy than steel steerers, but it's a heck of a lot cheaper for the home mechanic than buying a guide and a hacksaw, especially if you don't own a vice.

I agree. A round and flat file will round out the job nicely (no pun intended).
