Cutting Splice Pieces

What are splice pieces? What is a more efficient way to cut them?

In the previous blog post, we mentioned how to cut a splice piece, which is a filler piece in a wall where a regular poly panel does not fit. In that post, Jerry Spude demonstrated how to cut a splice piece with a handheld saw, and then he sanded off the rough edges. We also mentioned how you could use a hot wire cutter to cut a splice piece.

In this video, Jerry Spude uses a hot wire table to cleanly and efficiently cut a splice piece. The hot wire table was made on the end of a table saw table for the convenience of adding a groove to the splice piece. In the video, Jerry explains how you can make your own hot wire cutter if this process is something that interests you.

We enjoy using the hot wire cutter in the shop for several reasons:

  • Cleanliness
  • Efficiency
  • Convenience
  • Satisfaction of cutting through things with a hot wire
