Dereck,

I stopped watching them after #2. A good and safe power supply for a hot wire cutter is an esc for brushed motors on 7 round ones. The best way to cut is by numbering the templates all around and using two people. A person on one end calling the numbers. You can never hesitate during the cut. We always went around the leading edge and covered it with precurved balsa or we used 1/64" ply wide enough to go all the way around. If you use the ply you MUST make sure the adhesive is really dry( not just on the surface ). Solvent fumes cannot pass through the glue layers of the ply and they will slowly disappear the foam.
