Ideal for architectural models, designers, decorators, artists, teaching too, prototypes as well as classical railroad, plane and boat model building.
1- The working surface is of aluminium cobond compound. This eases the pushing of work pieces. A printed grid and protractor are applied to the base.
Crosscuts are achieved by means of a simple yet efficient solution: secure drawing-pin to table by means of tape, it serves as a fixed centre.
Double function fence with lockable feed bar (German Patent 100 00 102.5).
Styrofoam is an inexpensive material and very environmentally friendly as compared to other materials; it can be easily cut through with a hot wire. This material is sold in standard sheet sizes of 50 x 100cm and thicknesses of 2 to 16cm at almost all DIY centres and hardware stores.
The large base with 390 x 280mm table with surface of aluminium cobond compound ensures smooth and easy movement of the workpiece. The printed grid and protractor ease division and cutting. The solid aluminium overarm has a 350mm throat and offers 140mm capacity in height. The holder and wire coil (30m, 0.2mm diameter is included) may be shifted along the overarm to enable mitre cutting. A LED indicates operation and prevents burnt fingers (the cutting wire heats to maximum in less than 1 second).
The unit's double wound transformer and insulation to class 2 ensure the cutter is absolutely safe. The cutting wire operates at 10V, 1A.
Other technical data:
230V, 50/60Hz. Transformer secondary max. 10V, 1A. Cutting wire temperature with 0.2mm diameter is variable between approx. 100 and 200 °C. Weight approx. 3kg. Insulated to class 2 requirements.
