    Cutting down steel steerer with park sg8 sawguide

    Can I use the park sg8 saw guide with the regular 30tpi blade to cut down a steel steerer? Or is it too wide

    I think the sg8 is for the carbon blade and may be a little wider then the regular blade. I also want to make sure the regular blade is the one I use

    Thanks

    When it comes to post cutting, I've always used my plumber's tube cutter for seatposts. I'd assume it would work as well with steerers.

    steerers are a lot thicker than seat tubes

    Seat posts are usually aluminum as well.
    OP...is it threaded or not?

    I thought I was the only one to use plumber's tube cutter for cutting carbon fiber tube. I've cut 2 carbon steerer tubes with it last few years. Works fine.

    You can take apart the steer tube guide and use thinner spacers in order to make it (effectively) an sg6. I just did this in reverse.

    I have used my plumber's tube cutter to cut down my Aluminum Steer tube with no issues
