Spring Coiling Machine

Spring Coiling Machine

This fascinating piece of industrial equipment from WAFIOS takes thick steel wire and turns it into the kind of heavy-duty coil springs you might see wrapped around a shock absorber. It uses a series of rollers to feed the wire and computer-controlled bending wheels to ensure the precise shape and size of the coil.

World’s Smallest Barbecue

World’s Smallest Barbecue

When it comes to barbecue, we like large meat. But maker W&M Levsha went and built a teensy oven that cooks the tiniest portions of food ever. They used a laser cutter to create the metal structure and skewers, then milled its handles out of a block of wood. We can’t help but think of playing foosball with the chicken, though.

Exploded Car Sculpture

Exploded Car Sculpture

Modern cars are made from thousands of parts, precisely engineered to fit together and carry us safely down the road. Commissioned by Nissan China in 2012, Dutch artist Paul Veroude took a car’s 3,421 individual parts and suspended them from the ceiling relative to the locations where they are normally assembled.

The Most Dangerous Gardening Tool

The Most Dangerous Gardening Tool

Attaching three sets of hedge trimmers to the motor from an angle grinder seems like a recipe for disaster. But that didn’t stop YouTuber Turnah81 from trying the idea. Frustrated by the inability of electric hedge trimmers to cut through larger leaves, he built this nightmarish power tool that makes the most terrifying sound.

Realistic Rick’s Garage

Realistic Rick’s Garage

With the help of Unreal Engine 5, Design by FEO created this realistic version of Rick’s garage and basement laboratory from Rick and Morty. The workshop is packed with fun easter eggs and sci-fi references. There’s something that feels so right that Rick’s voiceover was created by an AI-powered neural network.

Beck: Old Man

Beck: Old Man

Neil Young’s Harvest is one of the greatest albums ever recorded. Among its tracks is Old Man, a song about a man who achieves success at a much younger age than usual. Like Young, Beck had his first big hit at age 23, so the song is a perfect fit for the multitalented alt-rock musician.

Rock Solos on Harmonica

Rock Solos on Harmonica

Musician Will Wilde is an incredibly talented harmonica player. He’s especially adept at interpreting vocal and guitar solos from rock songs, including this jam from Pink Floyd’s The Great Gig in the Sky. His harmonica solos from Led Zeppelin’s Stairway to Heaven and Guns N’ Roses Sweet Child o’ Mine are equally compelling.

Polygonal Turning

Polygonal Turning

It makes perfect sense that you can mill round objects by turning them on a spindle. But this video from the Titans of CNC shows us how it’s possible to use computer-controlled machines to mill sharply-defined polygonal objects on a spinning machine by synchronizing the spindle and the milling tool.

Machining a Miniature Vise

Machining a Miniature Vise

We can’t think of a practical use for a vise you can fit between your fingertips, but that doesn’t make this tiny vise any less impressive. W&M Levsha created the micro tool by milling shapes from a small block of metal, drilling holes for its mechanism, then fitting it together with a teensy threaded rod and handle to make it work.

The Rock of Ages

The Rock of Ages

Making a Folding Metal Staircase

Woodworker Bourbon Moth asked his pal Rainfall Projects if he could help him build a custom staircase for his new workshop. He came up with a tubular steel structure with wooden steps that can fold flat against the wall when not in use. That giant plywood jig he created was genius. It could use a handrail, though.

Avengers on Tesla Coils

Avengers on Tesla Coils

Marvel characters like Living Lightning, Electro, and Thor have the ability to control electricity. But only one of those guys is an Avenger, so we’re imagining that the tesla coils in Franzoli Electronics latest video are basically rounded versions of Mjölnir shooting their lightning bolts at Captain America’s Vibranium shield.

Rope-making Machine

Rope-making Machine

Traditional ropes are made by winding hemp or other strong plant fibers. NightHawkInLight got his hands on an industrial machine he found on AliExpress that can take fibers like tall grass and braids them together to create rope. It required a bit of fine-tuning to make it work properly, but it did its job in the end.

It’s a Me, Mario in Other Voices

It’s a Me, Mario in Other Voices
