As you recall a few weeks ago I ordered the Double Rock 1in. Foam Cutter from you. I have an upholstery shop here in Victoria TX. Silver Threads Upholstery and recently took a job to upholster some bench seats in a Party Bus. The job was going to require cutting 208 holes in 3in foam back panels.
I’m happy to say the foam cutter saved me a few hrs. of tedious work trying to cut out that many holes in 3 inches of foam. What might had taken me 2 – 3 hrs. to do the foam cutter allowed me to do this in about 45 min.! It worked like a charm and it was money well spent. I’ve been in the upholstery business about 30 years and can’t believe I put off buying one of these foam cutters for so long. It would have saved me a lot of hours trying to cut decent holes and plucking out the foam from the center of the hole.
I always hated the results and was glad the foam was covered because the holes always looked like an amateur did them. The foam cutter cut out nice clean cut holes. I highly recommend this tool to anyone that is taking on a big project like a tufted head board. It would be money well spent. For someone that’s not in the upholstery business it still would be a valuable tool to have in the tool box for anyone who enjoys crafts and works with foam.
Believe me when I say it’s money well spent and the first time anyone uses one they will feel the same. One recommendation from the manufacture is true, and that is spray the cutter with silicone spray. I didn’t have any so I kept a paper towel damp with sewing machine oil. I would cut out about five holes and then wipe the cutter with the paper towel and this kept the foam from sticking to the cutter. Press down on the foam until the cutter hits the bottom and then all it takes is a quick short pull on the drill trigger and the hole is cut. Very fast very simple anyone can do it. As I promised I have attached photo’s of the seats. Thank you so much for sending me the tool on such short notice!
