Pouring Molten Aluminum from 50 Feet Up

Pouring Molten Aluminum from 50 Feet Up

Coiling Molten Steel Rod

Coiling Molten Steel Rod

Redditor arcedup works in a steel mill and wanted to test out the video capabilities of their phone. While they were at it, they captured this wonderfully satisfying clip of molten hot steel being turned into a coiled rod. Is it wrong that we want to make the world’s largest Slinky with it?

This fascinating but brief video shows a special glassblowing technique that involves pouring molten glass onto spinning platters. As the glass spreads into the mold, it captures the underlying pattern and smooths out the glass on top. We’d love to see the finished pieces.
