Electric Carving Knife - Thanks for the tip.
I've seen many posts here recommending electric knives
for cutting foam, but have never used one until now.

While installing the Katskin leather seat covers, I thought
I'd firm up the driver's seat and needed to cut a foam
sheet to fit. The wife wasn't looking, so I borrowed her
electric knife to try, and it worked great! Sliced right
through the foam with no residue and clean cuts.

This was my most ambitious interior work to date, and
it turned out really well, thanks to the knife tip...

A little heavier solution is an electric fish filet knife. I have one called an Electric Fisherman made by Mr. Twister. Mr. Twister Electric Fisherman - 329030, Fillet Knife at Sportsman's Guide

Thanks for the fish knife suggestion. I get those
Sportsman's Guide catalogs and might pick one
of those knives up to keep peace in the family...:)

I was amazed at how these knives cut foam.

using the wife's knife in the shop or powder coating in her kitchen oven is grounds for divorce
or so i was told when i used the toaster oven for powder coating a bracket :D

Ha ha, what the wife and the turkey don't know
won't hurt them.

Uh, powder coating in a toaster oven; hadn't
thought of that one...
