Awesome Cutting

Master of the Potato

Master of the Potato

We’re not sure who the chef is behind this video, but he’s got some serious knife skills. Our jaws dropped when we saw the amazing lattice that emerged after he made a series of partial cuts through a slice of potato. Sure, the video has been sped up, but his precision is still on point.

This motorized rotary tool is better than scissors, especially when it comes to cutting materials like plastics, leather, carpeting, cardboard, and vinyl up to 1/4″ thick. It features a self-sharpening blade and ensures a clean, smooth cut in straight lines or curves. Aproca makes a custom-fit carrying case as an accessory.

There are lots of machines out there that can cut holes in flat sheets of steel, but MarkGyver built a machine that can make cuts into the curved face of a cylinder.

Waterjet Lathe

We’ve always enjoyed watching videos of wood being turned on a lathe. However, the carving part is usually done with metal tools. The guys from the Waterjet Channel wanted to see if the powerful high-pressure cutting tip of their waterjet could be used to smoothly sculpt a spinning piece of wood in the same way.

The PyroLance allows firefighters to spray water into a burning structure without having to break down doors, walls, or ceilings. It uses extremely high pressure to drill a hole into an adjacent space, then sprays a fine mist on the other side to reduce the temperature.

Cutting with Paper

Cutting with Paper

If you’ve ever gotten a paper cut, you know how sharp the edge of a sheet of the stuff can actually be. The Q shows us how rapidly spinning a disc of paper on an angle grinder can turn it into a circular saw. Needless to say, keep all fingers and toes away from this thing.
