What is the best way to cut tubing up to BT80 and are there any products available to do this????

The Hose clamp works well. Try to make your cut with a new or sharpened #2 or 11 long narrow xacto blade and make the cutting motion outward toward the clamp band once you penetrate the tube wall.
Sandman is right for the cleanest, best cuts a mandrel is really the best way to go.
I build up whatever mailing tubes or huge dowels of about the right size with 2" masking tape until its a nice firm slip fit.
