I know what a hot wire foam cutter is, but I was interested in his exact setup.

I just used 3/4" PVC for the arm, chromium wire (found at a hobby shop) a single pole dimmer switch (on high the wire is way too hot) and a 25.2v 2a transformer from radio shack. The wood I had left over from another project. I can put more about my build with some pictures later if you are interested.

I also used a foam knife to make the initial cut to get the wire through.

The 4 that were for guns as a whole, no matter what they are, are all gun owners, and all but 1 of the rest have actually been around guns, shot them, etc.

I made the decision we are all going to take the afternoon Friday to go and shoot a little. Not making anybody shoot a gun, but I want them to be around them to see why people enjoy having and using them. Amazingly, nobody fought about having to go. Best company outing I have planned yet, if I do say so myself.

Thank you. That's one thing that I have seen way too many times; don't like guns but have never been around them, shot them, seen the responsible use of them, etc. so I just hope to have a few come around on the subject. If I can add more gun owners to the office, that's even better.

Going this Friday. I will report back and see how many new gun owners we add after that.

Good work, make sure you run through all safety first. Last thing you would want is a mistake by someone who is not aware of safety protocols.

No doubt about it, the other 3 and I are sitting down this afternoon to lay out a plan for hoe to be sure that everybody has a good time while remaining safe. I want them to have the best experience possible to be sure that they come out with a totally different view of things, maybe even convert a few to gun owners. Even for the ones that don't shoot that day, I want them to see what responsible gun owners do with firearms, not what they think happens because of the news stories of late.
