You can always find a small pipe cutter that they use for plumbing.

I think this is it or close to it

You can always go to a hardware store with the tubing in question and ask the staff there.

This thread might be helpful, too (Search + "metal tube").

Don't use a pipe cutter... you're asking for troubles there. Use a razor saw and mini miter box. Find them at www.hobbylinc.com. Then use a bastard file (search here for that term) for cleaning the edges.
