Hello,

During the past several months I was quite busy in my workshop developing and finalizing production of a new line of foam cutting bows… these started life through a personal need to possess a quality tool able to cut wings and other parts for my own design projects and do so with my standards for practicality and high precision.

Like most of you I have built personal bows in several variations and in the course of years (more like decades as I’ve done my first at 12!) have finalized a pretty clear picture of what features are really needed in a good and practical bow.

Prototypes came very promising hence the decision to make a limited number production run in the hope that other craftsmen (especially modelers) out there will benefit from my effort… I am effectively a one man show in most of my projects (my dear wife…thanks Rania! helped a bit in doing some miscellaneous threading chores)… considering the extensive work needed and time involved in finalizing and producing them I have also tried to keep the price tag as low as possible.

Most prominent features are the use of a custom alloy titanium wire (slightly better than Rene 41) and fully adjustable over a wide range cutting wire tension (independently present at each bow leg), wires are assembled by my own development method without any crimping involved.

Also featuring totally concealed electrical contacts/lightweight but rigid rectangular aluminum frame and single (or double for 36/42/48 size) micro switches for fingertip current control… to name a few concepts that I always wanted in a bow but never got down to materialize properly!

Have decided to offer them in five versions based on imperial units/feet graduations... if some of the above features aroused your curiosity you can sneak a full look at eBay:

12’’ size https://www.ebay.com/itm/123961391841
24’’ size http://www.ebay.com/itm/123961397834
36’’ size http://www.ebay.com/itm/123961398613
42’’/1m size http://www.ebay.com/itm/123961399510
48’’ size http://www.ebay.com/itm/123961400112

I deliberately opted to not include (or exclude!) a DC power source for any version of these bows as I strongly feel that this important choice is better left to the user… there is a wide selection of variable current units on the market offered at quite modest cost so I’d rather not be involved in that area.

However each bow is accompanied by a 20 page highly detailed manual… took some late night candle burning to complete it but I think I managed to write at least one or two interesting things about foam cutting!

In the event that some of you may be interested to get a second bow/friendly companion for your personal faithful bow you can drop me a line at kazaklisglider@yahoo.gr ... will also benefit to a 12% discount of the eBay listed prices.

Regards,
Tasos.
