Foamwerks Foam Board Cutters: The Perfect Tools for Custom Cutting Mounting Boards

May 3, 2018

FoamWerks™ Foam Board Cutters are essential tools for every graphics studio and sign making workshop. These hand-held cutters are designed to cut several different kinds of graphic mounting boards as thick as ½”. When using the FoamWerks™ Foam Board Cutters, it is important to use a scrap piece of foam board underneath the piece you are cutting to protect the tool blade and extend the life of the cutter. You may also use a self-healing cutting mat if additional boards are not available. Below you will find the four different FoamWerks™ hand-held Foam Board Cutters available. Read through the descriptions to learn exactly why these tools are so essential in the graphic industry, and why no graphic studio should be without them.

Simply rotate the angled base block to transform the FoamWerks™ Foam Board Cutter from a straight cutter to a bevel cutter. Features include adjustable blade depth, ergonomic handle and on-board blade storage. The Straight/Bevel Cutter includes two blades and can be used with any suitable straight edge to ensure a perfect cut/bevel.

Cut perfect circles from 1" to 6" in diameter with the FoamWerks™ WA-8001 Foam Board Circle Cutter.

To use the Foamwerks™ Foamboard Circle Cutter, simply place your Foamwerks™ Circle Cutter on your foam board and brace with one hand. Be sure to have a scrap piece of foam board or a self-healing cutting mat underneath your work. Use your other hand to rotate the handle clockwise.
