One of my trades is interior/upholstery related. And for a second time I made an foam enclosure for a previous client of mine. part of the process is making sure everything fits in their vehicle.
The enclosure was pre existing storage compartment in the rear of their vehicle. I made patterns from their equipment. and then assembled the foam. making sure to cut when necessary. I used a hot wire to do the cutting. right near the end I contact cemented matching felt to the foam and then hot wired it. it makes for a nicer looking finish and also protects the foam from hand grease oil etc… the hot wire I use is scratch made one Power supply 0-24V 30A regulate-able. the wire is SS .115 wire. the cutter assembly is uses a router table as the platform. works like a charm!
I was again in awe of the hardware. I wont go into what they are. (some of you already know) Just trust they are very very exotic! and pricey… as for the “in awe” Im guessing you will be too. Lots ‘O pics. before and after.
