I make Hot Knives with a cheap stick welder from Harbor Freight or an auto parts store. And I normally twist 2 or 3 strands of NiCrome together, this reduces the sag and lets it get hotter with less chance of breaking.
I agree with the gloves tip, take it from someone that has fought a table saw and lost, loose the floppy gloves. If you need/want to wear something, get the extra think latex gloves that stretch to fit your hand, I use Venom brand, Lowes sometimes carries them and most welding and cleaning supply places.But to my tip, when crosscutting on the table saw, esp while using a miter gauge, only hold onto the wood at the sled, not both sides of the blade. Holding both sides increases the chance of binding and kickback. Great project though, thinking about making it for my nephew, it will be what I put his B-Day present in and one more thing to store his ever growing Lego collection
