One man foam wing cutting wire position calculator

Hi all,

I did a simple calculator to find the position of the fixed point of the hot wire if you would like to cut foam cores alone (one man work).
I still did not check it for rightness, so please if something is wrong tell me and I will fix it.
Simply input the data you want and get the position where to fix one end of the wire.
This way it is possible to use only one airfoil template.

Hopefully this will be useful to someone

Best regards,

Ric

Good info. Last fall I was looking to build power supply, and ran across a video on YouTube were he had shown how to do this. Went back to find it, no chance!

OK Ric,

Alla perfezione! E poi via a costruire zagi che poi entrano in risonanza nel DS sul Cornua!

Ciao.

Hi all,

I found a great demonstration video about this way of foam wing panels cutting.

Here is it :

Best regards,

Ric

P.s.: sometimes I'm getting crazy. Why sometimes video embeds and sometimes not ?
