Styrofoam® Moulding Cutter

Rob Chase

 

Pictured below is a wood lathe attachment for producing Styrofoam® moulding. This low-cost attachment is easy to construct and can be adapted for a variety of moulding shapes and sizes. It consists of three basic components: cutter, cutter housing, and clamping board. See Figure 1. Like any router blade, the cutter is a double-faced “negative” of the moulding it will produce. The cutter housing both guides the Styrofoam® past the cutter and collects the chips produced by its operation. The clamping board holds the attachment securely in place on the lathe bed.
