    Definitely going to make this -- at least for myself. However, in my circle I don't think I could fling a meatball without hitting a celiac. Can you recommend a best substitute for the bread crumb binder? Thanks.

  • DIY Variable Depth Hot Wire Foam Slot/ Hole Cutter

    Hi samayaraj. I'd like to try making foam cutters capable of doing the depth cuts like your demonstrated here, plus doing a bit of shaping and sculpting. Looks like you've got the right tool for the job here. I've looked up the Turnigy Reaktor you used here and it's variants, so I at least know I can get one from an online mail order house. The input for it is a computer power supply, is that correct? (The modified ATX power supply you mentioned in answer to bwh13.) So I should be able to find one like it in a computer component supply shop. Can you outline the modifications you made to it so you could connect it with the Turnigy device? I'm in Canada where the domestic power supply is 120 VAC @ 60 Hz, so I was wondering if I could even use the Turnigy. I couldn't tell whether it was on...

    Hi samayaraj. I'd like to try making foam cutters capable of doing the depth cuts like your demonstrated here, plus doing a bit of shaping and sculpting.

I'm in Canada where the domestic power supply is 120 VAC @ 60 Hz, so I was wondering if I could even use the Turnigy. I couldn't tell whether it was only designed for British & European use where the power supply is 230 +/- 10VAC @ 50Hz. Thanks.

    Oh, and a follow-up question: Did you consistently use 22 gauge NiChrome for your cutter wire? I was just thinking that a slightly thicker gauge might be stiffer and so handier for sculpting, though of course it would require more current to reach cutting temperatures. How long were you able to operate the cutter before the supply wire into the hand tool heated up and became a problem? Or was it not a problem at all? Thanks again.

    Hot Wire Cutter - Building Guide

    Looking at the substage bit -- the stretcher & energy connection -- is the wire tension created by winding the cutting wire on that bridging bolt? And are those aluminum flanges intended as a heat sink? Did you find you had to limit the time of use to allow it to cool down?

    Perfect French Fries

    Good on you Matt. Keeping the skins also raises the nutrition value, and I do appreciate a thicker cut fry of the sort you make. AlfieE2 brings me back: I grew up in Eastern Ontario where chip trucks were a fixture. How they managed to tear around town without having deep fryer disasters is a mystery. And I recall that they preferred to use 'older' potatoes, not the hardest and newest, to get a better result. I came to like them best with malt vinegar, and occasionally, balsamic. The mayonnaise thing I picked up from a Dutch guy, but that's different mayonnaise than the very white standard stuff. It was was distinctly off-white/creamy yellow, probably due to including more egg yolk, and the taste was much richer than the standard product. Now I'm dying for some!

    Build a wooden fence and gate

    Looks like work I need to do, and very well done at that. Seamster you mention the difficulty with the post holes. As you are 'beside a Rocky Mtn,' are you in the NW US? Soil columns have lots of glacial till in the northern US, i.e.: full of cobbles. So, did you then go for shallow & wide post holes? How deep did you go, and is depth to base of winter frost a concern? I'm in southern Alberta, and I'll think I'll have to hire a power auger for the job.Rickdod3's south Illinoisan location probably puts him safely past the southern limit of the appropriately named 'Illinoisan' glacial advance, so he's in nice alluvial soils: location, location, location.
