I'd been looking to buy a hot-wire foam cutter for some time. Mainly I wanted to cut out outlines in foam to store tools, firearms, etc, & bviously I wanted one that worked well & for a decent price. Of the few I found on amazon, this Proxxon sounded pretty good but 1-2 bad reviews made me skeptical. Right out of the box, I found that it was EXACTLY what I was looking for! I 1st used it on some very light shipping-type foam & it worked great. Once the on button (trigger) is pulled, it takes about 5-10sec for it to reach full temp & then it slices right into the material. As long as you pay attention to the speed of the cut (by felt resistance to cutting) it makes a smooth, continuous cut. It's set up to easily remove 1 end of the wire so you can insert the wire into the center of the foam, re-fasten the wire, & make a cut from the inside of the foam. I also tried it on some VERY thick & heavy automotive grade insulating foam, & it did cut through it, but slowly. Although I only needed to make straight cuts, you can shape the wire to whatever contour you want & cut like so. Anyway, pay no attention to any bad review on this tool. I couldn't be happier with my purchase! There's no doubt it's well worth the cost. But don't forget, you DO have to buy the transformer from Proxxon to run this. Even with that added cost, I'd buy it again!!!

This tool is a work of art, a thing of beauty. For the price of a weeks groceries, you can start sculpting styrofoam into anything you can imagine. It cuts through thick foam like butter, no, more like air. Even your most sensitive gesture is reflected in the cut. Absolutely effortless styrofoam sculpting. It makes a peculiar whine while running, but wearing earplugs made it tolerable and I quickly got used to it. Also, you will need to wear a good organic vapour mask while cutting the styrofoam, but hopefully you already knew that. This is the most wonderful tool I own now. God bless the geniuses who invented it, seriously.

Compared with the Woodland Scenics hot wire cutter, this is much more powerful, and cuts circles around the competition (and the heat is adjustable). Just remember you have to buy the Proxxon power supply transformer as well.

I recently got back into model railroading and have been building my scenery using extruded styrofoam insulating material as the base material for mountains. I needed an efficient way to cut the material into unusual shapes and this tool fit the bill perfectly. It is effective and easy to use. I also found that I can use the .35 welding wire from my wire-feed welding machine as replacemt wire on the cutter.

I like the design of this tool, especially the articulated arm. So many uses. Stop complaining about the lack of power supply,I am actually glad they don't bundle the power supply and make you pay more. it will work with any power supply 12V-16V DC with a current rating of > 2A . You might have to craft a connector or use alligator clips.The middle short pin that you see on the connector is passive ( I believe) its sole purpose is to make people insert the plug with correct polarity. If you're not confident working with electricity do not attempt using another power supply and buy the bundled one ! Interestingly based on my measurements the bundled power supply applies up to 24V in idle state (measured at the plug), then the voltage goes down to ~14.4V @ 1.5A on highest setting when the tool is on. Test was performed with a short segment of wire (~3"). It will probably draw more current with a longer segment of wire.

Solid design, comes with 5 wires; easy to set up and get working but needs separately purchased Proxxon power supply.

There is zero issue getting the Wires into the clamps as there is plenty of room as per the pictures. Anyone who had issues with mounting the wires was using custom wires or had a defective or modified unit. Both top and bottoms side clamps shown have enough room for wires 2x the diameter.

When driven by the Proxxon 38706 Transformer this hot wire cutter performs flawlessly and as advertised. It is beautifully designed, easy to adjust for different wire lengths and comes with several extra wires.

The plug for this product is a special three prong plug, where all three plugs are lined up in a row. This can only fit into one of the manufacturers transformers: Proxxon Transformer NG 2/S. The page does not go into any details about this! There needs to be a lot of details when selling odd foreign items like this!!!!!!!!!!!!
