Quick reminder guys Check the description for a link to our self made seminar It’s a three day hands on training event where we are going to teach you how to make a living making videos at home Hey guys I’m Nate welcome back to the King of random Today we’re gonna be trying an […]

What Does DRY ICE Do in a Metal Foundry?

Hey guys welcome back, thanks for joining us today on the king of random in the past We’ve done several experiments with dry ice and we’ve had two viewers Give us suggestions of other things to try with the dry ice Daniel milage ask How does liquid nitrogen compare to a cooling bath of acetone […]

Will Liquid Metal Cast in Clay?

Guys, Welcome back! I’m Nate with The King of Random and today we are going to try casting molten metal in clay. In the past, we have tried casting molten aluminum in a few different things We’ve used muffin tins. We’ve used plaster, and we’ve tried using sand. We’ve had mixed results with the sand. […]

Don’t Build a Metal Foundry Until you See This First

Okay, what’s up guys today? Today I’m out here with my mini metal foundry because we’re celebrating a milestone. The video on melting Pop cans has reached over thirteen and a half million views and over one hundred thousand likes. Now when I first made the metal foundry I had no idea that so many […]

Melting Cans With The Mini Metal Foundry

Today we’re going to be making muffins. But trust me, this is one recipe you won’t be able to find in the kitchen cookbook. In this project we’re using backyard science, and a bucket full of soda cans, to make a batch, of mini metal biscuits. Let’s start this project with the mini metal foundry […]

Metal Casting Play Sand

I’m really looking forward to this project today because in this video, we get to play with sand Now, back when I made my first Mini Metal Foundry, and used it to melt down soda cans, I was looking for the most convenient and easy ways to cast that metal. You’ve seen the Styrofoam casting […]

-321°F Liquid Nitrogen vs 2000°F Metal Foundry

Hey guys, I’m Nate welcome back to the outside of the workshop, we’ve got another random experiment today We’re trying and this one is brought to us by youtuber elite fusion Z who asks What does liquid nitrogen do inside of the backyard foundry Elite fusion Z? We think this is a great idea? Well […]

Make A Trash Can Metal Foundry

What’s up guys! It’s that time of year where I’m starting to get the itch to get back into metal working again. Now, I went on Amazon to order a new clay graphite crucible, but apparently I ordered the wrong one because this thing is absolutely massive and way to big for my mini metal […]

Convert Your Backyard Foundry To Propane! (“Gas Blaster” Propane Torch)

In this video I’m going to show you how to build a fire breathing “Gas Blaster” torch from simple, and common materials. This homemade jet torch shoots a steady, and adjustable flame, that gets hot enough to melt metal. Which means, now you can dodge the challenges of charcoal, by powering your foundry, on propane. […]

How To Make The Mini Metal Foundry

Things aren’t always what they might appear to be. For example, this decorative houseplant you’re looking at, is actually an artfully disguised, metal melting furnace. In this project we’re using equal parts of sand and plaster, to make a simple backyard foundry, that’s powerful enough to melt scrap metal in seconds, but still pleasant enough […]
