    There is just something not right about camo. Camo hammocks, maglites, or whatever.

    I tend to break out in a rash everytime I come into contact with any.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    Don't go hating on camo. There's a bazillion worse colors in the dollar bin at walmart.

    hey anyone think of using one of those cold heat soldering guns you see on tv..we have them at my walmart...the heat up instantly and return to finger cool in seconds.. i wonder if that would cut as well ... just mark material .and use the tool like a box cutter ..place.. push trigger ..and zip...might be worth a try..

    I've used one of those before...I think they're a lower-heat gun. Just hot enough to solder, but maybe not hot enough to cut well. Might be worth a shot, though!

    i don't know how hot they get but if they don't cost to much, maybe you could check it out.
    they might work great. and you wouldn't have to keep it hot except when you actually get ready to cut.
