I am not a big fan of hot wire cutters since they give off toxic fumes.Trying to line tools I will need to carve foam for mountains a scenery in general. Anyone have any reviews or insights on the hot wire foam cutters I see online? Thanks in advance on any suggestions or tips!

Good points...money probably can be used for other purposes...thanks!I am not a big fan of hot wire cutters since they give off toxic fumes.
I've always done just fine with the hand powered onces: saws, serrated knives, rasps, and sanding blocks. That would be my recommendation. They're cheaper and more versatile as well.
Word. Solder fumes are toxic, too. Do we all have fume hoods? Likely not.the fumes -probably- are toxic, and -probably- so is the dust ...
i would rather have a bit of fumes , rather than dust several times, and again when it goes through the vacumn cleaner, that is if you get it all ..
saws, serrated knives, rasps aren't exactly free either .
in the end, to each their own ..
I'm pretty sure that the fumes from smoke fluid are not great to breathe either. And yet, we continue to use the stuff - many drops at a time, in multiple locomotives at the same time, in a space that doesn't have great ventilation.Word. Solder fumes are toxic, too.

Just don't huff the fumes, unless you're into that.
