Lego Styrofoam Cutter

Lego bricks are great for making models, but sometimes you can make real tools with them. If you want to work with foam you should definitely consider building this hot wire cutter. It’s a great tool because it doesn’t leave any dust and it cuts through foam like butter. A few years back I didn’t have any scrap wood but I had plenty of Lego pieces.

When I was a young whipper snapper, my first lesson in automotive repair was enlightening and required extreme dedication.  My father passed it down to me, as I’m sure countless fathers have around the world.  It’s like it was just yesterday, when my dad started off with those classic few words, “Son, hold the light.”

I don’t know about you, but I would have killed for one of these tools. I feel like I could build one just as easily, but for $9 bucks this tool isn’t too expensive.  Opinions?
