Everything’s better when squirt guns are involved, specially when they’re shootingpewter melted down to virtually 500 degrees Fahrenheit.
On the latest YouTube video from the Backyard Scientist, hetries out his molten metal squirt gun with some thrift store pewter home decoration, glass, hot dogs, burn, and, of course, a watermelon.And yeah, the molten metal flow shooting out of the squirt gun definitely looks just like a lightsaber blade that could slice off your arm.
Using styrofoam, glass, water, and more, the scientist hit the molten metal off at different objects to understand what the fuck is happen. Regrettably, the watermelon was probably the least exciting of target practice, but hey, at least he had a chance to set something on fire in the end.
Oh, there’s also a fun cameo of his new DIY Tesla coil complete with, of all things, a fidget spinner . Yes, it appears completely ridiculous and fun to touch, and he’s even included the schematic to the coil and a writeup guide to the squirt gun in the video description.
However, I’m not so sure I’d want to try my hand at shooting melting metal at inanimate objects myself.
