I was watching the show Cool Tools on DIY and saw the guy showing off this cool tool for cutting drywall. Immediately i thought that would probably work great for cutting foam core too. It is pricey at about $80.00 but if you do alot of your own boards this seems like it would save major time.
I have tried using exacto knives..works terrible..rough edges.
I've tried using a heated cutting knife..not fond of that either.
I don't do enough cakes at this point to justify the cost of this tool, but if i did i would certainly consider the tool i saw.
Check it out and see what you think..
The tool is called a blade runner drywall tool.
Just googled this and watched a You tube video about this...I think I might try it! If it cuts drywall that easily it should work with foamcore!!! Thanks so much for posting
I know right! I thought it was brillant!
Looks like it would take all the headache out of cutting those foamcore boards. You could cut out a bunch of shapes and sizes in no time. If you purchase it please let us know what you think.
Very interesting. Drywall is chaulky and denser, so I wonder if you'd get more cuts to each blade too.
