With blue or pink foam you can also use sandpaper. If you want to do sand a long section, make a sanding block with a long piece of wood and use a roll of sandpaper that you either staple of use a tacky spray glue. A long sanding block makes a more even "cut" for long material

Simon,

I have a tool can cut the foam, but not sure it can help you.



Hi everyone - I’m looking for some help please.

Is there a tool available for cutting a long foam strip so the edge has an angle? I’m taking about 3ft long.

Thanks for your advice Bruce and Stephan, and your offer of tools Alex. In the end I did it manually, as Bruce suggested, using the (amazing and brilliant) DuraGRIT sanding tool!

So here is the result! Formers and side added to one side! Booster pod ready to be sanded.

It’s coming on!
