These might not as specialized as one would think. Except the dull version like in the pic.

I just started leatherworking too. I bought this Fiskars rotary cutter from Michaels and I'm quite happy with it. Makes extremely clean cuts with not a lot of effort.
There is a cheaper variant on Amazon.

It all depends on what type of builder/crafter you want to get into. Buying all the "machines" and tools for someone that would be a foamsmith but you're really a needlework kind of person makes it a potential waste of money and time (and vice versa).

IF you want to get into an overall crafting/building in general, here are the tools and materials I've gathered for my workshop:

I'm gonna put the word **Optional** for the items that are not completely necessary for first time builders, but definitely worth while down the road.

  • Breakaway blades - You can get a pack and break away the blade once it dulls or no longer sharpens.
  • Rotary cutting wheel - for quick fabric cuts
  • Kershaw Sharpening stone -
  • Dremel (or rotary tool) - I've seen these go for as low as $30 for one that has 2 speeds. Since it's mostly for costuming, the 2 speeds is plenty.
  • Besides the Dremel, if you can, pick up a Belt Sander **Optional** from Harbor Frieght (particularly when it goes on sale and they issue a 20% coupon) I got mine for around $50 and it is a time saver!
  • Heat gun, I picked one up from Harbor Freight and it was under $10 at the time. It's still going strong and I have had no issues.
  • Wood Burning Tool **Optional** - This will help you add some great details on the foam. There is a good starter kit also that contains a bunch of nibs, including a soldering nib, as well as a hot knife attachment. The hot knife will cut through foam like butter. One note though, if you don't plan on getting a separate dedicated hot knife, use the one that comes w/ the kit for the finer cuts. The wood burner is a very versatile tool!
  • For the glue. I would suggest Barge Contact cement or DAP Weldwood. This is what I use and it's proven to be a great option. Hot glue is still very helpful and can be used for quick fixes or adding additional bond. My only reason for not using hot glue for foam is that it takes time to cure and you have to hold it in place. Also, sometimes it creates messy seams.
  • Kwik Seal paintable caulk or flexible spackle - to cover up the seams you can use either of these. Difference between the two, 1) the caulk needs to be smoothed out before it dries, you can use water. 2) the spackle can be sanded after it dries if you don't apply it smooth the first time.
  • On the topic of concealing seams or general sculpting, you should look into Foam Clay. It is very malleable and once cured overnight, it's basically shaped foam.
  • Mod Podge or Flexible Clear Coat spray **Optional** - To coat the finished and painted product, you will want to use something that will protect it and also be flexible. Unless, you want it to be very rigid, you can use Epsilon Pro to coat it, but I can't guarantee that it won't crack. Especially areas that will need some flex. I say this is optional because some crafters don't do clear coating.
  • Eye Protection & Mask - you don't want fine bits of foam flying into your eyes or lungs. Make sure you get eye pro and a good fine-filter respirator.
  • Sewing machine - I'm not a needlework expert, but having one is great for sewing straps, hook & loop, minor clothing, etc... Obviously if this is more your expertise, get one that you know you'll love and have great use of.
  • Cutting Mat - Useful for both the foamsmith and the needlework crafters. I've used both the Fiskars and the US Art Supply brands. Personally the US Art Supply one is way better IMO. It holds up to more cuts and abuse.

    Here are some helpful options for your search for EVA foam. Hopefully one of the stores I list here will be some-what local for you. Home Depot, Lowes, 5 Below, BJ's, Costco, Walmart, & Harbor Freight all carry the EVA (floor mat) foam. I have personally purchased and used foam from all of these locations.

  • Your standard craft foam (from craft stores like JoAnne's or Michaels) will be anywhere between 2mm - 6mm. These are great for accent pieces or adding fine details. Keep in mind anything under 8mm will need some sort of rigid structure in order to maintain a good shape for armor. (like cardboard or something) FYI - Joanne's now carries the Yaya Han branded EVA foam mats in various thicknesses.
  • Harbor Freight has 4 (24"x24") tiles for $8.99 and sometimes have an additional 20% off coupon circulating around. The back of their EVA foam is a standard heat treated texture. They also carry a 72" long (8mm) foam roll with a heat treated diamond patterned back for $9.99.
  • At BJ's & Costco, I've bought some from these places as well, they carry 8 (24"x24") tiles for $9.89. But people have complained of its quality. (I personally have never had any notable issues with them.) The back of their EVA foam is generally heat treated usually w/ a diamond pattern.
  • Home Depot & Lowes carries the 4 pack (25"x25") anywhere between $20 - $25. The back of their EVA foam is a standard heat treated texture. Though these seem fine, they are more expensive and are just like the ones at Harbor Freight.Walmart carries a 12 pack (24"x24") for around $18 - $20. The back of their EVA foam is the typical heat treated texture.
  • 5 Below carries single tiles (no packs) (multiple colors) for $5.00. Same as the others, standard heat treated texture on the other side.
  • TNT Cosplay Supply carries various sizes and thicknesses of EVA/Craft foam without the heat treatment backing. This is especially good if you don't want to have to deal with sanding down the heat treated backing to help glue adhere better. They are more expensive, but the quality is always great.

I use this one and find it works pretty well for me. I don't have experience with any other kinds though.
Here are the blade refills as well-- I found its cheaper going through Amazon than full price at Joanns or Hobby Lobby, etc.

u/227craftingco · 3 pointsr/Leathercraft

Also, a rotary cutting wheel would help in making good cuts on soft and supple leathers.

u/ksemel · 3 pointsr/craftit

There are some supplies I love that made scrapbooking more enjoyable and less fiddly-tiny pieces going everywhere.

  • Rotary cutter
  • Self healing mat
  • Glue dots stamper
  • Photo corners (I had larger sized clear ones that were great but I can't seem to find them now. Sparkly ones are nice too, I have tons of these things)
  • An excellent photo printer and enough photo paper that I didn't feel like I was wasting it. :)

    I have a paper trimmer too, but it's so fiddly, and the tiny little blade doesn't always cut clean. A nice ruler and the cutting mat with the grid lines was a huge step up.

    Between that and the glue stamper I started making scrapbooks with pretty designs and blank spots for photos as baby shower gifts. Those two pieces made it SO simple to make a page that everyone got a book last year.
u/Beefsurgeon · 2 pointsr/drums

Wow, those drums look incredible!

A few of thoughts about cutting bearing edges on a wrapped drum:

  1. You can notch out the the top layer of the overlap at the edges of the shell, just far enough so that the router bearing won't hit the bump. The drumheads will cover this completely so the drum will look the same when assembled.

  2. It's also very possible to create a perfect butt seam (no overlap at all). Essentially, instead of gluing the overlap, you trim it off with a rotary cutter. This requires a very precise straight edge and a good set of clamps, but it looks awesome when you pull it off.

  3. Sheet metal sheers are a great tool for trimming excess wrap material. They tend to have a bit more leverage than ordinary scissors.

  22. "Everybody knows you never go full retard."

  23. I posted it the other day, but here you go!:

    > My favorite birthday was my 21st because instead of going bar hopping like everyone recommended, my family and I went out to Florida to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. We spent the entire day in Diagon Alley and enjoyed a feast there. We started to explore the castle, shops and rides, but the best part was Ollivander.
    > We waited in line for what felt like hours. It probably felt that long because it was just hot. We finally get into the room, which fits about 20 people or so, and the actor absolutely nails it. They always pick someone from the crowd to have their wand choose their witch or wizard, and it's usually a little kid. He picks the first kid he sees in the crowd and does the skit. Adorable, cute skit with magic everywhere! We're heading out, but Ollivander noticed my sister. He asked if she needed anything, and she said, "No, I don't. However, it's my sister's birthday!"
    > Ollivander did a fitting with just my family and me in the room. I told him I bought a wand already, but he told me what it was made of, its core and what it was best used for. Since he saw I was wearing some Slytherin colors, he assured me it can be used for "alternate forms of magic, good and evil."
    > As of right now, nothing can beat that birthday.

I start a week and a half vacation when I get off work in half an hour! So very happy!

u/InterloperKO · 1 pointr/Leathercraft

Here's one I found. I have this one, and like it.

u/Sweetsmyle · 1 pointr/crochet

They sell rotary cutters in the sewing departments at craft stores. You could get replacement blades there or on Amazon.

u/salziger · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I see you like to sew. Nice! If you don't have one of these already, you should definitely get one. They're wonderful for sewing projects (and just about everything else, too).

From my wishlist: something for my husband. Thanks for the contest and don't worry be happy :)

u/lunas_MK · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

I cut a mat to size for my Pok3r using a rotary cutter. Super easy with something like this (Amazon).

u/ced_spectre1 · 1 pointr/boardgames

The best tool I have when I am cutting foamcore (longer cuts) is the rotary cutter. It looks like a smaller, sharper pizza cutter and makes a very clean cut. Pair this up with a metal ruler for exact lines, and be sure to get yourself a self healing cutting mat. I also use an xacto knife for smaller cuts, get some extra blades as they wear down quick. I get mine from a local dollar store, same blades but only a dollar for 3.

There is also an awesome thread on Board Game Geek where people post their foamcore creations and answer questions : Link to thread

Definitely check out and subscribe to that thread and you will likely be able to find the game you are working on there, I believe its alphabetically listed throughout.

If I am making up my own I always start by arranging the components how they would best fit in the box, deciding if I want it all connected or removable trays, if I am using card sleeves etc. and always measure a couple times remembering to include the thickness of the foamcore haha. When determining depth be sure to include any boards or manuals in the measurements to maintain a flush box close where possible. Another thing to consider is expansions, and if you want to add them to the box.

I also have found that tacky craft glue works great and dries quicker, and if you need a little extra holding power in corners and such use sewing pins (the kind used to hold fabric together for stitching). Glue your corner and stick some pins into the foam to hold it in place while drying.

As for the foamcore itself, I get mine from a local Staples. Always give it a quick look to make sure there aren't any creases in the foamcore from bending. Usually I pick up the 3 board pack as its a bit cheaper and I also use it to make structures for miniature skirmish games.

Hope that helps :)

You can use a few layers of hard construction paper and glue it together, trace the curve with the rotary knife

u/mwanafalsafa · 1 pointr/boardgames

If you're using an Exacto knife, drop that and get a Fiskars rotary cutter. It's amazing for cutting paper-glued-to-chipboard without ripping or wrinkling things.

I made my own copy of the hard-to-find tile-laying game Gheos with basic matte photo paper, black chip board, and heavy-duty (e.g. not repositionable) spray glue... I'm quite happy with it...

I have the Olfa standard and it works fine but personally I'm always afraid my hand is going to slip and I'll cut myself. I recently switched to this and I like it much better but it really all boils down to preference.
