Default Hot wire foam cutting

I have scoured the internet, looking for anyone in the San Francisco Bay Area with a hot wire cutter that could help me to cut the foam from my case to my pattern. Any tips or references would be appreciated.
Thanks!
:-)

Wow. I figured that the bay area folks would have had this scoped out by now.
I actually found a place right here in Fremont:

When I told them I had the foam and a pattern, they asked me if I could just bring the rifle in. Cool! I'll let you guys know how it goes with them.

You can also do it with an electric carving knife. The knife will set you back about $12. Here's a link that should help.

You can get on at FLAX in SF. Or you can get on on Ebay.

I'm thinking of going there as well. How was the experience? Did you drop off your firearms? How much did it cost?

In case anyone needs the service, I'll reply to my own question. I went to Bob's Foam today and he charged me $25 for the foam and cutting; it took about 30 minutes. All in all, he did a great job. A picture here:

Very good to know. Thanks for sharing your experience. I may have to look into this now since I was a little iffy about cutting into the foam myself.
