How many of us use things like a heat gun, Dremel, wood burner when crafting? Are there other tools that you rely on?

In my studio i work with rigid foam so i use a drywall knife to cut the basic shapes and the dremel to clean it up and shape it.

printersdevil, unless you are familar with working with power saw's i wouldn't jump into using a jigsaw right away. typically a jigsaw is used for wood working and if you use it on foam it works but cuts a lot faster through it so you have to be used to controlling it or you could get hurt. I have worked with power tools all my life and i still have all my fingers but there have been close calls. If you want to cut foam try a dremel, they are great for shaping and carving foam.
