Styrofoam insulation


Most guys cut it with a straight edge and a utility knife. If I'm making a bunch of uniform cuts, I do it on a table saw.

Styrofoam insulation


i cut some 2" today, scored a line about half way through pretty easily with my pocket knife, and hit it from the other side like popping a cut on sheetrock and i was good to go.
