Fix Park Tool CN-10 Cable Cutters That Aren’t Cutting Cleanly

Posted by on in Cables, Tools


I show how to adjust a Park Tool CN-10 cable cutter tool that doesn’t cut well, and leaves rough ends. The issue often is that after a lot of use, they develop play and needed adjustment. It’s as simple as loosening a locknut, tightening a bolt, and re-tightening the locknut. I used two 12mm wrenches. This will probably work on other models and brands of cable cutters as well. If adjustment doesn’t work, then might be able to be sharpened, or need to be replaced.

*after the video was shot, I loosened the bolt, just a hair. There was still no play and it moved more smoothly.
