Arrow smiths would find Thermocut bendable wire rod useful to sear cut arrow feathers to shape. Works better than blade chopper or scissors cutting especially the parabolic profiles. The feathered  arrow is mounted on to a parallel stand and rotated towards  the fixed heat adjusted hot wire searing to set profile equally on  all three feathers. The thick cutting wire 285 x 0.85mm can be hand shaped to cut any profiles without deforming.

Stable frame with pivotable fixing element at top and extendable lower wire fixing. Maximum total extension 200mm. Maximum work piece height 150mm.

Cutting wire temperature infinitely variable. With a little practice, you can achieve optimum cuts depending on the material density and thickness. Usually at medium temperatures and without too much pressure. Heat-up time 1 second. Complete with five deformable cutting wires 285 x 0.85mm.

Therma shape EPE foam, XPS foam to conform to cutting wire profile.
