Make your own *hot wire foam cutter* video tut!

Allow me to introduce Dave. He's a very good personal friend of Spookworks. A millwright/welder like hubs, an electronics guru, diver, explosives expert, former SAS assassin and cake baker. Oh...and also happens to be a fiercely driven tinkering maniac.

This is his baby, Mechanical Mashup. Everything and anything that could be built in your garage he has either built it, or will soon. 
This is his latest project and a very cool one at that, a hot wire foam cutter. Just what every self repecting haunter needs in his arsenal.

Thanks to Dave for letting us post this.
