I'm ready to try another round of hammock making and am looking to purchase a heat knife. I hear it makes life a lot easier with cutting the synthetics. The problem is that there are a lot to choose from. I just went to a hobby store to price compare and they had a couple all-in-one attachment heating thingies for around 30$, Seattle Fabric Store has one brand specific to heat cutting for 35, and amazon just has too many choices.
I want to know other people's choice / what brand worked for them. If a brand has a knife that snaps off all the time or does not cut but drags... Amazon reviews are nice but I figure if I am using it specifically for hammock/insulation cutting I might as well go to the source. Then if someone has a brand they like, I will be looking to buy from someone no longer into the DIY or has an extra they got as a gift
