The Hot Wire Foam Cutter HCM2S is designed for cutting EPS foam (Styrofoam) by using a Hotwire. Cutting by wire doesn't produce dust or chips ensuring a clean surface.


Very little pressure is needed to cut foam by the HCM2S.



Note: Heated Wire expands when hot. If the spring is too tight the wire may break restricting operation of mechanism. If too loose, the
cut will be sloppy. Readjustment of tension may be necessary from time to time.

Safety Tips

Power Controller – Use nothing longer than a 50 foot 12/3 grounded extension cord. Set the temperature dial on the controller to zero (0). Turn on the hot wire power controller and adjust the dial until the wire glows orange. Immediately back off the controller until the heated wire just begins to turn from orange to gray. This is the optimum foam cutting temperature of the wire. Anything hotter will cause premature wire failure or anything cooler will require too much feed pressure on the wire causing premature failure. If the wire is too hot, the cut may not be as accurate as you would like. A wire that is too hot will melt the foam too quickly at the beginning of the cut and less quickly as the wire cools off resulting in an inaccurate cut.

So you're an architect right? If so this is a great product for cutting out models. I really enjoy using it and suggest this hotwire. Make the ones we used in school seem primative right? Anyway, buy this thing!


This product is well made and easy to set up. I cut foam parts for model prototypes and this cutter works similiar to a scroll saw in that you can cut intricate pieces of any thinkness correctly. You can also adjust the temperature for the type of foam you are using. I suggest ordering a spare roll of the nichrome wire as none of my craft or hobby shops carry this product. The cutting arm that holds the nichcrome wire detaches easily enough for storage.


This is a very nice piece of equipment. Excellent build quality and very simple to assemble. Goes through 2" foam like a hot knife through butter. The protractor is also well designed if not a little lightweight as it is made of plastic and pot metal, but you would have to pay a lot more to get something more substantial. Overall, a great combination of price and quality. I would not hesitate to buy again.


This foam cutter is absolutely great! If I buy more foam cutters, they will be from this company! Quality is top notch!


This is such a nice tool - very good design. How convenient to have that! I am sure this can be further improved in many aspects and I wish I have the time and means to do it but so far I am 100% happy with the use of it. Very easy to operate. Much better than a hand held wire cutter.


My wife needed to cut out 20 Styrofoam music notes for centerpieces for a party. She started with an electric carving knife, went to a regular knife and then to a paring knife. Needless to say, it was a disaster and the house was covered in shavings. I ordered this online and put it into service the day it arrived. Broke the wire a couple of times (don't worry, there is a generous amount of wire on the spool), but once we got the hang of it, we have cut all sorts of things including foam and plastic. Excellent tool for the purpose.


A pretty well made piece of kit here. They include everyting you need to get cutting foam. Set up only take a few minutes and your ready to go.


The precision to cut with this machine is incredible. I absolutely love it!!! I cut a lot of tiny flowers and small tiny pieces to add for centerpieces, and it cuts them perfectly. I love this machine!!!!


it's amazing Cutter
i useful with this Cutters
i can do what i need to do
i recommend to have it


The problem with hand-held hot wire cutters is that your hand is not steady enough to cut smooth even lines. So you need a hot wire cutter with a table like this one. I use it to cut 1-inch foam for the inside of cases that hold valuables like cameras and firearms. It cuts smooth perpendicular edges, but don't be in a hurry. Patience will turn out excellent results.
