The Electric Deck of Cards

This looks like a deck of cards, it feels like a deck of cards, and it even handles like a deck of cards. But this little gadget has a very shocking secret. In this project, you’ll see how Stuart Edge, was able to give these lucky ladies, an electrifying first kiss. For this project, we’re […]

Melting Marbles With Electricity

Hey guys We’re back today with another experiment that I’m personally excited about and been looking forward to for a couple of months I went picked up a couple of bags of marbles from the Dollar store And I’m bringing it back my mini Arc Furnace because I’d like to bring the two together and […]

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 […]

Burning Stuff With 2000ºF Solar Power!!

In a previous project I found a free tv and turned it into a giant solar scorcher. This shoots out a deadly beam of sunlight, that’s hot enough to abuse food, melt metal and burn things you probably shouldn’t. Today seemed like a good day to play with my Solar Scorcher. I positioned my frame […]

5 Crazy Science Stunts You Can’t Try At School

Grab your safety gear and sign the waiver, because we’re exploring 5 insane science stunts you won’t be learning at school. Normally we don’t think of metals as being very dangerous. We use them all the time, but sodium metal is one that’s extremely reactive. The second it touches water, it starts ripping the water […]

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 […]

The Metal Melter

I’ve just modified this Microwave Oven Transformer into a dangerous little device. 800 amps of electrical current is about to be bad news for anything made of metal. Today I’m in the mood to melt some metal. This Microwave Oven Transformer used to be a dangerously high-voltage device, but I modified it so the voltage […]

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 […]

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 […]
