Well, thanks to you Elwood, I spent half of yesterday turning my little hand held into this. I went by hobby people and didn't find any of the wire so I tried some various types of wire I have in the shop. It all failed and I ended up using the piece that was on my hand held foam cutter. It is a little short so I only have 4.5" of clearance right now. When I find some more wire it will give me 5.5" of clearance to cut foam. I think that is Enuff clearance for just about anything I will be cutting. The rod I used is the one from my hand held. I rebent it into the shape I wanted, threaded the end of it and threaded a piece of aluminum to act as a nut and base for it. My power source is a tattoo gun power supply and hooks up nicely with a variable power selector.

EB, thanks for the inspiration brother. I like it, I can't wait to get my foam in I ordered to start making a bunch of stuff.
