I actually have a styrofoam cutter. It's just a wire, handle and batteries, essentially. Works by resistive heating.

After thinking about it for several years, I finally designed and built a double guitar cutter. It is made entirely of aluminum and stainless steel with a High Density Polyethelene base. Both the cutters and the base are interchangeable. This cost me less than $400 to make.

I used a chop saw and a cheap drill press along with assorted hand tools. I did have the cutter frames TIG welded.

That is the cutting base; it is made from a 1" thick HDPE cutting board

That cutter is quite impressive...have you considered making a few more to sell? I would be interested in one.
