Thermo Gun Blade Cutter

The Thermo Gun Blade Cutter is a compact, light-weight, pistol-grip-style hot blade cutting tool designed for cutting polystyrene and foamed plastics. It is suitable for cutting polyethylene, light weight plastics, PVC fabric, and foamed rubbers, and is widely used for cutting and sealing the ends of ropes.

This Thermo Gun Blade Cutter Kit includes the tool body (currently yellow, not orange in colour), two cutting blades (100 and 200mm long), and allen key. The kit comes in a plastic case for safe and easy storage and transport. Extra blades, including a bendable Shaping Blade are available as an option at $20 each for special projects. 

* Please note that as with all equipment that operates at high running temperatures intermittent cooling periods will prolong the life of the cutter. Always turn off the cutter when it is not in use. The spring-loaded trigger is not to be taped to ON position - this will void the cutter warranty. And when working on metal benches and around metal objects please take care not to short out the blade, or the terminals of the cutter.


Technical Data:

Supply voltage: 230V/50Hz
Power output: 150-250W
Warm-up time: 30 seconds
Weight of body with blade and power cord: 0.7Kg
Power cord length: 2.0m

Please note that when cutting polystyrene and foamed plastics that there will be a residue of material remaining on the blade after use. This can be scraped or sanded off. (This residue is less of an issue when cutting with a fine hot wire tool).

A full 12 month warranty applies to the Thermo Gun Blade Cutter Kit, as it does to all Foam Sales' polystyrene cutting kits.

We recommend that a test cut be performed in advance of your project work to ensure that the result will be as required. The blades will heat to between 300-500C (30-60 seconds holding down the trigger) so burn path will vary accordingly. Take care as well - these temperatures can give a nasty burn.

Works well - came quickly

Good to hear, thanks Peter. RB

Louise S.
Does the job

Needed to cut 2.5 inch large sheets of polystyrene foam. The shorter blade has bent after a fair bit of work but I can fix it and assume I can buy spare blades.
Still, , I think it is great as it does the big cuts and then works for the bits that need trimming or shaping.

Hi Louise, thanks for your kind review. You are correct that after heavy work the blades need replacing from time to time, and you can find spare blades here:
Thanks for your business! RB

Great Thermo Cutter

Excellent thermo cutter. I've been using this unit to cut 100mm thick blocks of polystyrene foam. The 200mm blade heats up quickly and easily cuts through these blocks. The 100mm blade heats up even quicker for cutting thinner blocks. Excellent customer service. Fast delivery. Great value. Highly recommended

Hello Ashley, that is good news to hear. Thank you for your feedback. SB
