You are my HERO ! I sometimes require a simpler foam cutter than the one that I generally use from time-to-time . This simply constructed version will fit the bill for both me and my flying friend Frank . Frank does not have a cutter at all and little time for making one . MAKE rules ! RickC

A friend dropped off an old electric train transformer for me a couple of weeks ago . A British made one with a variable 15 volt DC output . (@ 4 Amps max.) This would work perfectly for a table top version foam cutter using an old 10 inch table saw as the base . Thanx for your interest in this . New foam cutter posting to come soon . RickC
