Have you thought of trying a hacksaw?

IllinoisThere’s a story about a turtle and a scorpion. Scorpion is stranded on a river bank. Turtle sees this and asks Scorpion to get on his back and he’ll take him across the river. Scorpion gets on Turtle’s back and they go into the river. When they’re about halfway across, Scorpion stings Turtle. As Turtle is sinking, knowing they’re both going to die, he asks Scorpion "Why did you sting me, we’re both going to die?" and Scorpion says "It’s not my fault; it’s what I am."

    A hacksaw would appear to be a bit large for a project like this.  I shade no problem cutting the basic sizes w a razor knife. 

    But shaping it would be easier w a cutting disk on a dremel or some such.

    Hot wire cutter would be pretty clean.

    On rubber? I'm thinking it would be a gooey mess  :shrug

    I'd go with a belt or disc sander.

    Foam is mostly air. When it melts the little bubbles collapse and it shrinks away from the hot wire. Anything denser just melts.

    For shaping things like rubber recoil pads a disc sander is the usual tool. It does a nice and smooth job.
