    It looks like the removal tool that sharkbyte and others make is not made for cutting stainless. I've been using a dremel and then scoring the pex with a boxcutter until I can get the fitting off without damage, but it seems like there should be a better way.

    Lyncar makes a tool to "break" these clamps
