    Cutting the foam in a pelican case

    Any suggestions to cutting out the foam in my new Pelican 1750 case? I need to make it so my howa fits nice and secure. They suggest using an electric carving knife, the problem is I dont have one. Also If I screw it up where can I get more foam? :shock: Planning ahead, lol.

    Well I resorted to the chalk outline, electric carving knife method. I attempted to make the hot wire foam cutter and ran into one problem. NOBODY and I mean NOBODY sold the transformer needed for it at any reasonable price anymore. Radio Shack these days is just an overgrown toy store. Ill post pics in about 5 minutes.

    I left the chalk marks in for these pictures, so one can get an idea how I traced the rifle.







    I will say there is a lot of room to mess this up. I choose to actually cut the hole slightly smaller than the rifle and kinda push the edges of the foam back to get the rifle in so it was very snug. Plus you can always trim more away when too small instead of the other way around.

    Looks a lot better than my attempt at the electric carving knife. I blew out the transformer while experimenting with my wire foam cutter so I need to pick another up too. Radio shack does carry them but not all of them have the particular model. Here's the one I was using:
