There are automatic wing core cutting systems available. I built out that uses a simple system of weights and pulleys. It even handles tapered wings. There is a commercial version available but it is easy (and cheap) to build one yourself. The instructions can be found at - I followed another writeup that I found someplace else (by the same person). The other writeup was clearer and had lots of pictures but I can\'t find it right now. Either way it sure works slick. has lots of good hot wire techniques.

Forgive me if you mentioned any of this in the podcast but I have not had the time to listen to this edition of the Crashcast yet. (I am about 2 episodes behind).
