I use a Rigid 205 tubing cutter with a special wheel for cutting steel tubing. It leaves a small rounded chamfer on the cut end, which is ideal finish, burr free and very clean cut. The drawback is you need to use the built in reamer blade to cut off the internal rolled in ridge to protect the wire insulation. Been using that method for years before the new style raintite fittings came into existence.

If you use the tubing cutter and cut only partway through the wall and snap the tubing off at the score line, it leaves a slightly bigger smoother radius on the cut ends with minimal effort. The Rigid cutter works onEMT conduit from 1/2 to 2”
