cut away technical model using spline mask

Hi - I'm about to start modelling a radiator thermostatic valve - roughly comprised of a screw twisting inside two tubes. What I'd like to do is show a cutaway of the two tubes so that the screw can be seen inside. I've tried using a splined mask on a lathed nurbs but this cuts out the entire mid section of my pipe instead of just cutting the mid-front. If a boolean isn't possible is there any other option other than manually deleting vertices off the tubes to 'peel' back the outer layers ?
