Cut And Shape Styrofoam Efficiently With This DIY ‘Styro-Slicer’

Video: If you do any work with Styrofoam or other similar materials, you know it can be tricky to cut and shape pieces how you want them. This DIY setup will cut any Styrofoam safely and precisely, and can be easily stored when not in use.

This video from Youtuber Grant Thompson “The King of Random” shows you how to turn a six-volt lantern battery and some stainless-steel hanger wire into the versatile “Styro-Slicer”. To complete the build you’ll also need some 2cm PVC tubing, a salvaged power cord and a few other pieces of hardware Thompson mentions in the video. Once it’s all put together, it can make cuts at almost any angle. And when you don’t need it, the whole thing folds together for clutter-free storage. You can use the Styro-Slicer to cut and shape moulds, models and even safe props for your next cosplay outing. You can learn more about the project at the link below.
