Great idea for cutting foam!

Yeah. What I really meant was that I'm more interested in his system of gluing. The type of glue and the type of sprayer that he uses it with.

The Camie adhesive that I use now with a Critter spray gun isn't supposed to clog. But it does eventually. I'm always interested in a better system if one is out there.

Any glue gun will clog if not used all the time. That has been a PITA forever.

I've looked up that table before. It comes out of Poland, and is around $1700 plus freight. And it's an air hog, so you'd better have a bad-ass compressor.

I like them bosch tools they are some well built purchases. I picked up on the glue sprayer also , seems pretty thinned glue in there.
The lift is a real nice option for sure


Good day there

The EZE does take some getting used to. Folks use something to rest the foam on to account for the thickness of the foot?

You can set the foam on another piece of foam leaving enough hanging over to clear the foot of the saw. Then you will get a 90 degree cut on the edge or just tip the saw a little.

One more foam cutting option I learned about on this site-A band saw. It has become one of the most useful machines in my shop, cutting foam, wood and plastic.  I use it to cut angles (wedge shapes) that are next to impossible to do even with the Bosch cutter. Mine is a JET brand with the optional extension block which allows the use of a 105" blade (12" thickness capacity). The only drawback is that the throat depth limits how far into the foam you can cut.

Everything's getting so expensive these days, doesn't anything ever stay at the same price? Well the price for reupholstery hasn't changed much in years!

Yes Rich, I've used the bandsaw for ever to cut everything and a lot of foam. Great way to get rid of smaller pieces when you need a special thickness. Say you need 2 1/2" thick just cut 2 1/2" slices out of a 6" piece and glue them together. Very little waste at my shops this way.

The band saw is an option that expands your options/capabilities of cutting foam.

I have two and the way my fence (guide which works well on wood cutting) makes the tool
very effective.  The fence can be made to accommodate long piece cutting.  It is another way
of using residual foam.
