zippy ripper










Started cutting more foam today...need to rig a fence to zip through quicker - the saw and guide "as is" only goes to 20".  Fast/precise cuts is what I need.  Ben doesn't seem to mind his first taste of generator noise.  Carl weighed in on the progress today - 5lbs.  92,102,74,0,B,0

John,
Look up a hot wire cutter for foam it might be faster and more accurate

You can heat up a ball bearing and drop it down the foam to form wire races. You might ruin a piece getting the hang of it. the rat

Hot wire for plain foam! This is for DIYers: http://hotwirefoamcutterinfo.com/Hot_Wire_Foam_Cutter_Info/Hot_Wire_Foam_Cutter_Info.html

Thanks for all the hot wire info - I have used them before to cut foam. The table saw is much faster.

I know you keep an eye on Ben, does he wander on his own around TFL or does he stay close to "mamma"

Ah, you need one of these my friend:

makes sure work of foams and batts, and none of those damn crumbs from the foam.

I have faith that you can cobble together a table saw side extension with a clamped on fence. As long as the centers on your studs is just as precise it's a cake walk.
