I like the ability to control the temperature, and as you will learn if you just keep the temperature on high the wire will cut too fast and give you jagged cuts. Turn the temperature down to 4-5ish and it will cut slow enough to give you nice smooth straight cuts.
Also, for the price point, this item was a bit more than expected, pretty descent quality.
I took one star off of this item for two reasons:
1) The included guide is pretty much useless, I threw mine away after trying to use it for a while.
2) If you tighten the bottom wire clamp too much it will break the wire inside of the clamp assembly every time. Once you get used to how much to tighten it you can easily get it perfect almost every time (not sliding out and not breaking the wire). However, I would hope they would design it so you don't have to figure out why you keep breaking the wire.
I have tried it on open cell foam, rigid blue foam panels and white Styrofoam. It takes only a moment with a test piece to find the right temperature and speed for a clean cut then you are ready to go for it with your actual piece. The temperature adjusts rapidly (instantaneously for all practical purposes) so it is easy to determine the settings.
The cuts it makes are cleaner than the cuts that are the factory made edges. So much so that I now just plan a little extra material so that I can trim a tiny bit off the factory edge on a foam panel so that I can get a really nice smooth and sealed edge.
The miter/guide is a bit finicky but works OK. If you are not careful it can slip and give you a cut that is not straight. The key thing is to make sure it is tight.
As with any tool you need to plan to spend a bit of time doing some practice cuts when you first get it so that you can get a sense of how it works.
Summary: I love it. It works great and is fun to use.
I have nothing but good things to say about this piece of equipment...
If you are R/C aircraft Scratch builder or just into building things with foam you will love this product.
This hot wire router table is much nicer than anything you can build and probably as cheap as it would be to buy the components to make a DIY hot wire foam cutter.
If you are looking for a good hot wire foam router table you will be very satisfied with the Proxxon ThermoCut which will make a great addition to your tool arsenal.
I Know That I Love mine!
