The turned in edge of the cut tube can be removed with the triangular metal piece on the end of many of these cutters. Or use a chisel diagonally in the end of the tube with the cutting edge applied to the "Kerf" to be removed and twisted to cut /scrape away the unwanted ledge.This saves the problem of not fitting rightly. It also gives a relieved area that will leave a nice flush edge to the solder instead of a meniscus of solder This applies to both methods of removal.
