Did this video help you?

TheYnotThat: Where do get the foam at and at what cost? Thanks!

RetaRedCandy: Wouldn't it be better to use a box cutter or a exacto knife to cut rather than a hot knife?

Matt Anderson: How durable is the hot-glue because I have seen hot-glue come apart easily before?

Legoguylol4ever: Thanks! This'll be really helpful with the Halo Armor I'm making for Comic Con/Halloween. Thanks!

ImagineDreamsStudios: Dremel. mans best makers best friend.

Geoffrey Herz: I think you could optimize your process by not doing any detail work such as snipping off the excess until the very end, right before the pieces are assembled. Would sandpaper work better for smoothing to a finish instead of scissors and the hot knife? 

Winston Weaver: what is the Hot Knife you're using??? I'm looking into getting one but I can't find one like yours...

SplatCommandPB: You can skip all of these steps by using a sharp box knife and a dremel. It is a lot faster and more accurate.

Joshua Stuart: What type of foam sheets do you use?

DJOpaixMusic: isn't your momma woopin your butt for hotknifing on the kitchen floor?

Uncle Ben: Can you direct me to where I can find a template for the armor plz?

Nick Stone: ive always used a dremble and it takes about half the time for leveling 

Nosrej Chaokad: DIY attach a blade cutter to a soldering gun... :)

Anna Martin: Where do you get your material btw?

Matt Anderson: Im good at making historical costumes of the ancient world except the Roman Lorica thats a hard piece to reproduce. 

ImagineDreamsStudios: * makers best friend. oops stupid typo.

Matt Anderson: What costume are you making?

sirbrad4: Nice! Although I would not recommend breathing in those fumes all the time.

laokram: And it wount work if you don't do all that on a tiled floor !

Nosrej Chaokad: DIY attach a blade cutter to a soldering gun... :)

Scott riggs: You can also find these mats in your local wal-mart, They are in the section of the store with the workout stuff usually near the equipment or the weights.

bobyo hovio: can't you just sand down the edges with very fine sandpaper?

joshtimasprime: I never said you can't, so don't put words in my mouth. I said it's stupid and over complicated to do this when its easier to just cut it at an angle when cutting the piece out. I also never freaking said my videos were useful or better so shut the freak up about them. I have links in the description to better tutorials and I note that in the videos. My videos on not tutorials, they are vlogs dumbass. I only show small tutorials on basic crap inside the vlog.

shado12107: That glue gun looks familiar, I use the same model. Anyway I was thinking of making armor and now that I've seen this the project doesn't seem as intimidating.

b1101673: Really gonna help me make my armor

TheCorporal101: This is a nice tutorial, but it looks like it takes a pretty long time to get a couple pieces ready to be connected, how long does it usually take to complete a full piece?

UnitedPropBuilders: You.Are.Welcome!

nauchima: the foam is called EVA foam (or impact, anti-fatigue mats) you can find it at hardware stores or a fitness equipment vendors. they are floor mats used for high traffic areas. I've found them at Big lots, Home Depot, and walmart.. yes.. walmart sells them but you have to find them in the fitness isle.

justin robinison: how much is a hot knife

seth heck: do you need a hot knife cause i just have an exacto thats not

UnitedPropBuilders: I havent as long as you hold it together till its dry or mostly dry

Uriah Funk: Yep. Use sandpaper to smooth any rough spots if you don't have a hot knife.

Christopher Ian: Soldering irons are called hot knives? You learn new things everyday.

joshtimasprime: Don't call me derpy when you're the retard that used you're wrong in your first comment to me. I don't preach my own methods and channel, I don't think I have said com to my channel a single time unless someone asked about it or it was to temonstrate the right way to do it. You can't do whatever the freak you want, I was just saying its stupid, over complicated and doesn't yield as good of a result as just cutting the angle in when you cut the piece out.

SomeDrummingGuy: Anything from a couple of says to a couple of years. It really depends how good you want it to look. Spending Longer Time = Better Finish Spending Less Time = Worse Finish It is up to you.

SpartanC4: or where do you buy the foam?

SpartanC4: Where can you buy the Foam?

UncommonSituations: no lead is deadly

joshtimasprime: Why don't you watch my videos and see for yourself, jackass?

Diogo Brito: why dont just use de x-acto? it does a better cut without the need of leveling and the possibility of burning the foam?

Billy Doran: heyyy everyone, im looking to start making some foam armour, can anyone recommend any specific type of foam, tools, or anything else i might need? i've literally just been looking at videos and photos of some different costumes and armour that has been made for conventions and whatnot, so i have no idea where to start, ANY help would be extremely appreciated! :)

Jora Shepard: Derpy, you did say that. On one of the videos I watched regarding pepakura printing, and those methods used. In addition to that, your comments have been on 2 other videos I've watched, preaching your own methods and channels. For the record, jack ass, people usually comment a joke or to say 'good job'. Not to call one another incompetent. So keep yourself in check.

CHRISmartialARTIST: where can i get this foam

raijgreojgeoirg: halo reach foam shin piece

luis natermaldonado: nice tutorial, but using a razor blade, xacto knife, is way cleaner, WAY FASTER. If your a begginer i recommend using a knife and using the heat knife for details and not cutting.

UnitedPropBuilders: Build it. Show it. Love it!

UnitedPropBuilders: most hardware stores

UnitedPropBuilders: Either one should work just fine as long as its not dull

UnitedPropBuilders: Any local hardware store

Stefanie Elle: Do a google search for "Interlocking Floor Mat" or "EVA Interlocking Floor Mat" or "foam floor tiles"...you will find them in that search. I purchased them at my local hardware store as shop flooring. Good luck!
