Customer Reviews

5 Amp Thermo Cut 12/E Hot Wire Cutter (Transformer sold separately) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as advertised! Easy to setup and adjust, and slices through even the thickest foam with ease. Good control and comfortable grip lets me do fairly precise work for extended periods. Be sure to order the required power supply, though.
