Introduction: Simple Hot Wire Foam Cutter
In this instructable we will be going make hot wire foam cutter using A 9V battery and a Nichrome wire only.
It's really simple and easy to make it but, It works awesome.
Before we continue, I would like to thank instructable member clement.fletcher for his awesome Hot wire foam cutter.
His instructable inspired me to document my Hot Wire Foam Cutter as I was making it.
I modified it and made it even simpler without any additional parts and also made it handy.
Step 1: Supplies
To make a Hot Wire Foam Cutter we will need:
- A 9V battery
- A Nichrome wire (I used an insulated nichrome wire.)
- Small wooden sticks (I used matchsticks.)
- Hot glue or Tape. (I used Masking Tape.)
Step 2: Build the Foam Cutter
Stick the wooden sticks at the top and bottom of the 9V battery using Hot Glue or Tape.
Then attach the Nichrome wire to the sticks referring to the pictures.
Step 3: Done
Now you have successfully made your Foam Cutter all you need is to test it.
I used a scrap piece of Foam to test the Foam Cutter, As soon as the wire is attached to the battery it becomes Red-Hot and cuts the Foam efficiently.
Thanks for reading.
