Christmas is just around the corner;
What's everyone hoping for?

Any cool plans this year?


I want one of these:

(I still haven't worked out how to embed youtube links, maybe that could be your christmas present to me? :cool: )

And this is just gorgeous:

I'm really into metal forging: heating it up, aligning all those little atoms with magnets.
Gives me a semi.


I wonder how it stays so hot so long?
Maybe the parts of the machine are heat-resistant?
or it's rediculously hot?
Or repeatedly put into the furnace then brought out and we don't see that on the vid?


Marvelous art.

If you had actually read the Site Related links I sent you via PM, you would know the answer, as it's ALL clearly explained there (use the video insert button and remove the s from https in the video URL).

I saw that, and tried it, but I couldn't get it to work. Perhaps it's my browser?

It might be. I'm using an Android cellphone and the inbedded video links don't show up on my Web browser.

aluminum

Just get a lot of slag because it oxidises so easy

speaking of oxide, everyone's favourite exothermic redox (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thermite)
