The holder and wire coil (one spool of wire 98ft., 0.008″ diameter is included) may be shifted and adjusted along the overarm to enable miter cutting. An LED indicates operation and thus reminds you not to touch the hot wire to prevent burnt fingers. The cutting wire heats to the maximum temperature in less than 1 second.
