Question
Where to find construction tools.

First off, I visit this forum almost exclusively via Tapatalk for the iPhone. The search function does not work, and often topics are hidden, or information therein.
I'm looking on RC Groups for plans and instructions to make hot wire foam cutting tables, and the same for vacuum mold tables.
I can't believe such topics wouldn't be posted on RC Groups, so I'm obviously missing it somewhere.

Any help is appreciated.

Regards.

Such things might be out there but they'll be in the Builder's Workshop area.

One of the easier places to find thing on 'how to', is the Youtube videos, try a search on - hot wire foam cutter, also try - diy vacuum forming.

I see. I can, and have, found many plans and tutorials online and on YouTube for both tools I want to make; I just felt sure such things would be well-covered here on RCG.

There are many thread on both, but need quite a bit of searching for as they don't always get logical searchable titles.

The Advanced Search is the best way to find them.

I'm not sure what you mean by a table for a hot wire foam cutter. I use a solid core door.
I wrote an article on how to Build an Automated Foam Wing Core Cutter
Radio Controlled Soaring Digest published article/tutorial.

You can download the article here:
http://tailwindgliders.com/Files.html#Articles

I produced a few videos on using the Automated Foam cutter as well as Vacuum Bagging but they are for sale on the same website.

I'd be glad to refer to your article. Thanks. What I meant was that I'm looking for instructions to make a foam cutter that would span between two templates maybe four feet apart. What it was mounted to wasn't important, but the culmination was in my experience referred to as a cutting table.
