Crafters Sculpting Tool Kit

Foam cutting tool for freehand sculpting, carving and scroll cutting.

Carving foam just got easier with the Sculpting Tool; one of the most crucial foam shaping tools today, thanks to its versatility. The arms pivot for making negative cuts or can be held taught for scroll cutting. The thin hot wire cuts Styrofoam and white beaded EPS foam quickly and cleanly like a hot knife through butter. Shape 3D Styrofoam sculptures, carve village display platforms and more. Start sculpting Styrofoam the right way with the Sculpting Tool; a hand-held foam cutting scroll saw, carving tool and so much more!

What is the difference between the freehand router and the crafters sculpting tool? Is it possible to use a thicker, more rigid wire in the sculpting tool? I've been using it to build a Christmas village display and have found that the wires bend out of shape when I try to cut too quickly.

Yes, you can get a thicker wire for the Sculpting Tool but it will then need one of the bigger Pro Power Stations. We can give you an upgrade discount if you would like to buy the Pro Multi-Heat Power Station or the Pro Variable-Heat Power Station.

The Freehand Router, which also needs a Pro Power, has even thicker cutting wire. Here is the least expensive kit that has the Router and Pro Power Station:

I just received my K02 and love it....I am a model railroader and working on the foam mountains as a base for my scenery.
Without casting aspersions, model railroading is a huge hobby and most model the coal fields of central Appalachia. And the hot tool all of them use is from Woodland Scenics. You probably know of that model they make. However, it is short-lived. I have gone through three in two years...the electronics burn up.
But your product is wonderful. You SHOULD buy an add in Model Railroader and/or Railroad Model Craftsman. I think you have a real winner with your products.

I use a number of HWFF tools to create holiday village displays, but this Sculpting Tool is by far my most used. I use it primarily for carving cliffs and rock edges, and its quality craftsmanship allows me to slice up pieces in no time.
The blade can be bent to carve shapes, but I find it too flexible for this purpose (for this work, I use the Freehand Router Tool). 90% of the time I use the Wire Tensioner addon, which I HIGHLY recommend.
The Sculpting Tool is an absolute workhorse, and I recommend it to any foam hobbyist.
