The Upavon Fly Fishing Foam Cutters effortlessly and easily cut your foam for fly tying use.
These cutter are made in the UK from stainless steel tool grade bars and are easy and simple to use.
To maintain performance it is advised to use in a fast drill and keep the cutter sharp. Avoid cutting through onto hard surfaces by placing a soft material underneath the foam.
If required, you can use 25% detergent and a 75% water solution to lubricate the tool for a smoother cut. To sharpen the cutters place them into a drill and apply lubricant to a whetstone and run the end of the cutter along the stone at a 30 degree angle.
