I love it, I hug it, I kiss it!

I'm not sure if you can tell, but all the above slices of soap are the EXACT same size! I used to cut my soap with a blade and ruler and with the hand held blade, sometimes my cuts would get all caddywhompus. But not now, I have a new fangled soap cutting machine!
I don't have a slab of soap to put in my new cutting machine so you may not be able to tell how it works but I lay a 12lbs slab of soap under the cutting wires and pull down and I get 12 even cuts. What used to take me up to about an half hour now takes me less then three minutes. Here's a back view of my new soap cutter. Just so you know, this is the only one out there like it. I have the prototype.
I asked my friend T.J. if he could build me something to cut soap. I told him that what I had in mind was something like a hard boiled egg slicer. But of course it would need to be bigger and stronger as soap is not the easiest stuff to cut. I need to get some C clamps to hold the back down as you have to put a lot for force to pull the wire blades through all that soap.


The writing on the left bar of the soap cutting machine is

  4. He is quite the handy man to have around. Maybe he should be an inventor and patent this idea.
