  • Wire: Stainless steel, 20–24 AWG
  • Power: Car battery charger or computer power supply works well.
    • 12 V

Operation & safety

Be careful! The hot wire is under tension. If it overheats, it could break and throw molten steel at you.

Plug it in. It heats up. Pass foam through it to cut.

If the wire breaks, contact Matt F for replacement.
