Like wise ...No problems with Xuron cutters on code 100 rail nickel silver rail.

You must always cut top to bottom on "00" track and as said above the outer face of the cutters gives the clean cut, so a small section needs to be removed from the off cut length before it can be reused (With the cutters the other way around - outside facing new rail). Also I use a flat bladed needle file to chamfer the underside and both sides of the rails foot making fitting the rail joiners or insulated joiners that much easier.

Disc cutter (Slitting disc) in a Dermal etc is a much better way especially when the track is already laid and modifications are being carried out.
