How to de-skin bluecor foam in <1 min/side

After spending a bunch of time de-skinning bluecor foam sheets, I finally figured out the secret. Now I can de-skin both sides of a sheet in 2 minutes total, without creating lots of small slithers of film. Best of all it doesn't cost anything!

To explain, I made a small quicktime movie (it also let me experiment with my new Powermac G4/Sony PC9 ).

Caution the file is ~ 1.1Mb

Excellent!!!!!!

I'll have to give it a try, haven't put that much thought into it, just do it and cuss when it doesn't work. Should have been more scientific, I suppose.

Thanks
