Hot Wire Cutter, Part III

Tonight I added a new, higher rate compression spring. That seemed to do the trick- the cutter now makes nice smooth cuts. However, now the issue seems to be wire temperature- it'll cut longer sections, but it seems to struggle a bit. With the existing 12V 3A power supply I'll have to go very slowly when cutting the wing sections. Perhaps I'll have to borrow a larger power supply from my competitor...

  2. I do have some irish beer in the bridge and COD MWII in the xbox... Perhaps you could stop by, we could cut some foam, then battle terrorists!
