A hot wire foam cutter

We wanted to build a hot wire to enable us to cut shapes neatly through polystyrene sheets. Originally the device was built as a toy for the children but we also used it in other projects. We cobbled it together using pieces of laminate flooring and scrap wood. The transformer is an old computer power supply unit. The only element we purchased was the wire.
