For free hand cutting in thick Styrofoam for diorama model railroad construction of any shape. Other application areas: Architecture modelling, prototype construction, for designers, decorators, or for fine work on construction insulation. And of course, for classical model building. Stable frame with pivotal fixture at the top and extendable lower wire fixture. Maximum extension 7.9″ (200mm). Maximum work piece height 5.9″ (150mm). Variable cutting wire temperature control. With a little practice, you can achieve perfect cuts depending on the material density and thickness at medium temperatures and with moderate pressure. Heat up time is 1 second. Comes with 5 shapable cutting wires. Technical data: 12 V. 60 W. 50/60 Hz. Variable cutting wire temperature ranges from approx. 300 – 660 °F (150 – 350 °C). We recommend the use of our MICROMOT transformer NG 2/S for operation.
