A small commercial hot wire Styrofoam cutter I was looking at was priced at $53 and had a small cutting length of 4.5 inches. Remembering that Darin White had built a hot wire cutter for his animeyes project, I sent him a message and he emailed me a more detailed picture of his device to use as a guide. Same method as the foam suit, the aluminum is hot glued on to the foam and then adjoined to corresponding pieces with hot glue as well.
In conclusion, I think there are better uses for a hot foam cutter, but considering I’m using left over packing material, there’s no harm in experimenting!
Interesting idea, but I don’t think those gears could deliver any significant torque. The marine environment can be challenging, but expanded polystyrene (EPS) floatation blocks have withstood the test of time.
The marine environment can be tough: extreme temperatures, constant exposure to salt and water, and a demand for structures which can take a beating.
Since many public bodies of water now require floatation to be encapsulated, Universal Foam Products also offers a full line of encapsulated dock floats manufactured by Formex® that install quickly and are extremely durable. The inside of the Formex® floats are made from top grade expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam that conforms and thermally fuses to the shell. Formex® dock floats have survived major hurricanes, remaining attached to docks that were decimated by the storms.

For an upcoming project, I need to cut polystyrene foam with a thickness of 8 inches so I decided to build one myself. I picked up a used hair dryer at the thrift store for $3 and harvested the nichrome wire to use as the hot wire.
It took about 2 hours to cut some scrap wood on the band saw, drill the holes and wire up the 5 Volt DC output from the power supply. One of these days I'd like to get around to finishing the IM build I started a while ago Seeing all these cool ones coming into shape around here definitely gets me in the mood to do so! Often confused with STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam, EPS is lightweight and extremely buoyant, can be shaped and molded to fit the demand of marine construction and it holds up under year around environmental conditions. If you’re building a floating dock, expanded polystyrene is an excellent economical choice.
A pre-molded solid foam block means there is no loose fill and minimizes voids that can fill with water, reducing buoyancy. Patented Quick Connect Strips (time tested feature that allows fast, secure, easy mounting) along the perimeter under the top surface allow attachment along their length or width. We will provide you with a FREE quote and answer any questions you have customizing your order so you get exactly what you need for your floating dock project.
Nichrome wire is used in heating elements, because of two important properties: it is a poor conductor of electricity and it does not oxidize when heated. The bottom wire holder cross piece is fixed to the handle and the top piece is hinged so that the spring on the right pulls the nichrome wire taut.
Sorry i couldnt rotate the first 2 The suit is very light its able to hand on a wooden coat hanger. With 32 different HMWPE encapsulated float sizes in-stock and ready to ship, there’s no limit to building the ultimate floating dock. The ultraviolet radiation resistant shell protects the foam core from wave action, animals, marine organisms, solvents and fuels.

The foam is encapsulated using a patented process that allows the foam to be inspected before processing, insuring it is of the highest quality. The chemical composition of nichrome (NiCrA) is 80% Ni, 20% Cr with an Approximate Melting Point of 1400 deg C. I wanted to try and stay as close and accurate to the suit as possible so i thought of using the templates for aluminum. I had the pieces taped onto each other but because the aluminum is sharp overtime it started cutting the tape and the pieces would just fall off. EPS is also environmentally friendly and its lightweight nature makes transport and assembly simple.
Simplicity of design allows great flexibility while maintaining a positive strong attachment.
The nichrome wire in the hair dryer was coiled so I put one end in a vice and then pulled hard on the other end to straighten it out. Using foam template from Robo (thanks a lot bro) and using aluminum sheet met allows me to have the light durabity of foam but keep a hard exterior of fibreglass.
Lucky me i was sleeping at night and thought monsters were tryna get me Ill add some more pics tomorrow. So redoing it at 95% scale also the top of the head has to be redone as it came out too flat.
EPS floatation blocks are supplied in an infinite number of sizes to accommodate your requirements. However id hate to be the one walking through a crowd and being grazed by someone wearing an aluminum suit.
Also need to add the unibrow piece on the faceplate, I tried modifying the file after printing it out so that there are no unnecessary cuts into the faceplate and other areas for a clean look. My water test are perfect and have had no problems.The ph was high for a week and after that its perfect.
