    I am a fabricator/metal worker by trade and was actually pulled into the business of soap cutting products manufacturing by my daughter. As a prolific soap maker, she required special molds and tools to assist her in her artistic pursuits! She new exactly what she needed and as a fabricator, I knew exactly how to design and create those items. I conducted some research on typical soap mold cutter designs and arrived at a few designs that I chose to build. The biggest factor in fabrication is that everything that moves, or pivots experiences stress when it is used (soap cutters are no different). If you have stress, you will have inconsistent bar sizes and frequently broken cutting wires in the middle of a cut! I wanted consistent, precise cuts from the first batch to the 100th, not experience flex from inferior materials. There's a ton of cutters out there that will cut soap, but few maintain their precision with routine use. You can see my products here

    WHY MUST HAVE?

    ---- No more boring HDPE base cleaning.

    ---- No more braking wires in clogged slot in Hdpe base.

    ---- The wire spacing is precisely set up by the CNC LASER cutter. Each soap will be the same.
    Means, the same!

    ----- No corrosion.

    ----- This cutter is a powerful workhorse.

    ----- Will last almost forever.

    Bud is an excellent machine maker and a great person. The Bud cutter was my guidepost when I designed this cutter.

    That is a good-looking soap cutter!

    I have heard that fishing line is better (and cheaper) than wire for soap cutting. Might be worthwhile for you to check it out.

    Sorry for the late answer. The size is 1 x 2,5 x 3,5 inches. I don't know about weight. You can pay on my paypal .

    Why does she rub the bottom edge of the soap? She wants her soap looks fine and straight cut. As you know, the outlet edge of the cut-off soap is not as perfect as the entry edge. This is so on every wire cut. The output of the wire leaves a somewhat more rugged edge. Hope, this helps!
    Thanks
