Step 3: Using
The trick to using it is to be slow and steady. it will do the work if you let it. its like a hot knife in butter. This contraption wont take alot of pressure. so let the heat do the work.
care should be made to not cut yourself, not burn yourself, not breathe any smoke or fumes, not to cut into things that may explode or catch fire, and be careful of your cut depth to avoid damage/danger.
It might be handy to keep around another exacto knife to cut off any plastic that gets stuck to the tip. ]
place it somewhere safe to cool, and then put it away some place safe. I have an old dremmel case i store mine in.
