  cutting polyester
  Posted by: RubricOfRuin on Oct-23-13 9:19 AM (EST)

A heavy-duty 24V power source, heating-element wire, a variable resistor and insulators and you can melt-cut polyester blocks in any shape imaginable - AND there will be no pesky white fluff! Smells a bit though. Just string the wire taunt tight between the insulations, adjust the amperage to desired level of heat, and work the material around it. Like a bandsaw.
