Hot Wire Hobby Kit

New more powerful Model now in Stock for hotter, faster cutting.

The Hot Wire Kit is the perfect entry-level polystyrene cutting kit for hobby and craft room use. Suitable for hobbyists, model makers and art and craft applications, the hot wire and pen are easy to use and allow for precise, clean cuts.

The kit includes a hot wire bow, hot pen, and an engraving tip, a spare roll of wire for the bow, and an adapter for use with mains power supply. Cutting length for the bow is up to 140mm, and for the pen up to 100mm. The power adaptor for this new model is 5V, 3A.

Leave the unit to heat for 20 seconds before use and then allow the heat to do the cutting. Do not push or drag the wire or wand faster than the heat is cutting the polystyrene. Give the power supply a rest every 15-20 minutes and be sure to turn the power off when the unit is not in use.

The Hobby Hot Wire Kit is one of our most popular products. We use parcel post to ship anywhere in Australia for $15 freight. 

This hobby kit is designed for cutting low density polystyrene. It will cut high density polystyrene and XPS, though more slowly. It won't cut foamed plastics. For more powerful cutters browse our full range of polystyrene hot wire cutters and accessories.

Please note that current stock of this model is in a blister flat pack as featured, not in a plastic case per previous models.
