This is amazing! Thank you for sharing. I'm going to have to try this. I've been looking at the foam egg shippers out there and wondered if I could just do it myself.

Here are links to a couple cutting tools.
Double Rock Foam Circle Cutter 3 Sizes
C.S. Osborne Foam Cutter

I had ordered a Double Rock 1 1/4" diameter (bantam egg size) foam cutter and it should arrive any day, but since the tubing cutter I fabricated is working so well I don't need the Double Rock one.  It cost me $49.70 with shipping.  If anyone is interested in it, please make an offer.  I'd rather take a loss on it than keep it without needing it.

Rather than spend the money on the foam cutter, I found a small can that has a 1 3/4 in diameter, cut the bottom off of it and used it to manually cut the holes in some 2 inch upolstery foam..worked very well!.to cut the square of upolstery foam to fit the USPS flat rate box, I used an electric knife..smooth and clean cut..
