My cat was playing with a balloon as a kitten and the sting got tangled around one of it's paws...first reaction is to run....but the balloon, still attached, follows, occaisionally smacking kitty in the bum or getting caught on something and giving her paw a tug back. Talk about traumatic...this went on for about 15 minutes until the kitten was ready to pass out. Now, even the sight of a balloon sends her running and hiding.

The blades are standard stationnery blade (around 300 yens /40 pieces). Excellent for cutting/carving anykind of plastic and not bad with various foams.

Coligny wrote:If you stay stationnary too long at a single point the vibrations cause heating triggering a small curling of the plastic. But it's in the case you use it like you would use a chainsaw. Put at the point of entry then slowly pushed along the cut path.
But if instead you use it like you would use a standard knife, that is, several effortless light path along the full cutting path(like for skinning a rabbit... maybee) it gives quite a clean cut.
For acrylic, maybe a hobby table saw like proxxon might give better results, and straighter cuts.
I got this one... she's good especially for the price, and you can't lose more than a few finger at a time if you screw up...

But I'm surprised you don't see table saws at home centers where you are. You don't see the big sprawling ones like you'd see in a proper woodshop, but up here this one seems to be everywhere.
Both of those images are from The River, by the way.
Russell wrote:Thanks. What is the brand of the latter one? I tried to find it on the river in Japan, but it did not show up in my searches. Could you tell me the part of the URL that comes after the ...co.jp ?
My local home centre here in Fukuoka carries that table saw too (the only one), but I personally will not buy one of these generic Chinese/Korean brands.Yokohammer wrote:But I'm surprised you don't see table saws at home centers where you are.
