Default Routing EVA foam?

Has anyone used the cheap EVA foam tiles that you can get at Costco (or Harbor Freight) for any projects? I wanted to use them to make moulded shelf liners for my tool boxes (got tired of plucking out foam from Kaizen foam).

I thought I would check to see if this was a dumb idea or if people have had any luck..

Thanks
Anil

Not a dumb idea if you cut with laser or knife. Might be a big wadded up ball of foam when using a router

Default R/C Foam Bumpers

I've routed similar material...It cut beautifully. I had an order for a couple hundred 1" thick foam bumpers that were used to protect 1/10th scale remote control race car chassis. I don't recall the settings, but nothing special was needed. The chips vacuumed just like wood/mdf etc. Hope this helps.

Nice, thanks. I guess the best way is to try it out and see what happens. I also noticed that Amana actually has a line of bits especially made for foam cutting.
