Disclaimer - I have NOT done EHS, but I used to work for a hoist
repair company, and used to cut a LOT of hoist cable. One of the
standard methods was a SHARP cold chisel, and a steel bucking block as

workbenches, which had 1/2 steel tops) put the chisel on it, and give
it a GOOD whack with a 5 lb lump hammer - surprise, the cable just
