How To Turn Styrofoam, Into Solid Aluminum

For this video, I’m going to show you how to convert something made of styrofoam, into something made of solid aluminum, using common play sand, and a little bit of magic. Start with some foam board from the dollar store and peel the paper layers off the top and the bottom. Now draw, or print […]

Things I Haven’t Told You (The Story of “The King of Random”)

Just printed off a little list of things I thought we could talk about. Today we’re talking about the clickbait, the collabs, what’s happening on YouTube, and the future of “The King of Random.” So hey guys. First of all, Happy Father’s Day to any fathers out there. I know by the time you’re watching […]

How To Make Bat Blades

I just got back from the hardware store where I picked up some replacement blades for my utility knife. Because overtime, these things get dull and pretty rusty. But, as I took the old blade out and took a good look at it, I had a revelation on what kind of project we could do […]

How To Make The “Styro-Slicer”

For this project I’m going to show you how to make a Hot Wire Styro-Slicer that cuts styrofoam shapes with precision and control. It’ll produce professional looking 3Ds props for cosplay or metal casting, as well as make foam fighter jets, that actually fly across the room. The Styro-Slicer has adjustable power settings, cuts at […]

Making an ARC Welder – Part 1 of 2

When I burned up the wires on my first Metal Melter, I decided to turn the transformer core into a stick welder. But one transformer wasn’t enough to actually make it weld anything. In this project we’ll be modifying 2 microwave transformers, because more transformers means more power. For this project I scavenged parts from […]

How to Make The Metal Melter

In a previous video I used a modified Microwave Oven Transformer as an electrical metal melter. In this video you’ll learn step by step how it was made, and what I’m using it for now. In a previous project, I found an old microwave in a dumpster and hacked it open to see what components […]

The Scariac (Poor Mans Variable Power Controller)

Mixing water with electricity is typically discouraged, and for good reason, but in this project we’re pumping electricity into water, and a bit of drain cleaner to create a poor mans power controller. You might have heard of a Variac. This is the Scariac. In a couple of other projects, we fashioned a homemade stick […]

Make a Spot Welder for Cheap!!

A typical resistance spot welder like this can range in price from around $200 to over $800! That’s a little out of my price range, so for this project let’s make this one from common materials, and for just a few bucks! This modified transformer is the heart of the Spot Welder, and you might […]

Making an ARC Welder – Part 2 of 2

In part 1 of this project, we scavenged some parts from household appliances, and modified them so we could weld metal. In this project, we’ll be rigging up the electrical system, and adding some finishing touches so that our homemade stick welder is ready for operation. I started this project with a scrap piece of […]

Homemade Stick Welder – From Microwave Parts!

I found this microwave in my neighbors garbage can. So I took it home, and turned into an AC stick welder. In this project, we’ll be testing out this contraption to see if it actually works. Because if it does, we’ll have the metal welding power to make a puzzle for entertaining guests, or build […]
