Are you talking about an actual saw, or are you looking for a hot wire cutting machine??

I don't know about buying one premade, but I have several links to how-to's for building one. See if any of these help

thanks,
I have seen directions as well. figured someone out there would be building and selling them, even on a small scale basis.
thanks for the links~

Its just a nichrome wire. 8 ohms per foot and a model train transformer (4+ amps) and bing. Oh, make a bow with turnbuckles . The wire expands when its hot. Did it 25 years ago and it worked great.
