Cable cutters? They're like 8 quid on eBay

Draper copper/aluminium cable shears, 17 and amazing, does work on steel but can damage the blades but housing and cable seems to be fine with mine.

Lovin' is what i got.

Do profile stems still use anachronistic imperial bolts or are they metric now?

The Odyssey Springfield straddle cable is too long to work with my seattube brake stop. Is a shorter straddle cable my only option? If so, why can't i find one?

Sounds like it. Trim the cable down and use a knarp. https://www.danscomp.com/products-PARTS/512027/Odyssey_Knarps.html

Also, what is the bolt for that has locktite on it, it has a cable sized hole in the side, that comes with Springfields? I appreciate the answers, i'm trying to setup brakes after not having them for 10 years.

that might be the knarp. cut the cable to the right size, insert the cable in the hole, and tighten the bolt down.

Sounds like jeff is talking about length of straddle cable.  Cutting the brake cable shorter won't help the straddle issue.  Unless you shorten both ends and use knarps

I fixed the straddle cable issue, now i'm having a problem with the brake arms. One of them won't return when i let go of the lever. It moves easily on the post, and if i hold the other arm, then it returns easily. I'm about to throw these Springfields in the trash.

Post a pic of your setup. Springfields are good brakes but if your straddle cable is super crazy short they may have issues.

You ridding a CCR or the new Fit frame?

I read that part.

So your cable hanger is on the other side of the seat tube, near your tire? making the straddle cable really short.

Can you adjust the cable hanger so it pulls against the straddle cable more to the left/right (opposite to the arm that doesn't return)?
