Home Made Furnace

Another video, but not of Rattus! This is a cutting together of footage Avi and I took of Electra melting down old hard drives and other sources of aluminium in his home made furnace. This might look dangerous (and it is) but the only burn Electra got was when he ate his meat pie for lunch too quickly!

Look out for Avi's great line at 4:23!

Rah cool ^^

*grins* At least after that, there's no chance of the liquid silvery metal reforming back into hard-drives, foil or killer robots ^.^

Pretty neat video - and seems to have got a nice range of aluminium paper-weights from it too.

Nifty - and no worries that it might reform into a killer robot after or anything :D

Interesting - but something tells me I shouldn't try this at home. c.c

Not if you live in a unit, no.

Well, *if* I did it, I certainly wouldn't do so inside, anyway. :)

Mmmmmm, meat pie.... *drool*

Sat, Aug. 16th, 2008 05:38 pm (UTC)

I want to try that now.

Very cool, thanks for sharing!

Oh no, Ristin! This is something we did back in May--I hadn't gotten around to editing the footage until now.

The phrase "While the cat's away the mice will play" may be true for cats (and mice) but while you've been away your rat has been a perfect little angel. Just ask Broc. Er, on second thoughts...

Oh dear God!!

(Looks up "Australian public holidays" on Internet)

Ah, so you blokes were celebrating "Mad Max Day"!

*rolls eyes* Puh-lease! We here in Australia celebrate public holidays the same way everyone else does: Having a good yarn over a few beers while burning grilling some sangas on the barbie.

What? That's not how you celebrate a public holiday? o_O

Anyway, it wasn't for a public holiday. Just a run of the mill weekend at Electra's house.

What were you doing this for?

Sun, Aug. 17th, 2008 08:06 pm (UTC)

Um, because Electra asked me to film him and then make a video out of it.

Mon, Aug. 18th, 2008 01:11 am (UTC)

Okay, better question- why was Electra doing this?

Mon, Aug. 18th, 2008 02:13 am (UTC)

I know they're for "another project" but that's all I know. I was just there to film and make a video out of it. You could ask him on his YouTube video.

Oh, thats sucks, what a waste....

I collect old hard drives, the platters inside are just beautiful and I am wanting to get as many as possible so I can do an art project with them.

Electra was melting them down into aluminium ingots for another project of his. One of the great things about obsolete computer hardware is that different people have different uses for them. If you want some hard drives (and you have a way of collecting them) you should ask Electra if he can get you more.

I could still recover the data....

Wow, that was awesome to watch. And he created the entire set-up himself? Nice. :D

He would have had a friend helping him, but that was mostly him.
