  1. From the video where the Professor met this chap, I remember him saying he would give the Professor a bead of osmium.

  2. a mask like in the movie the collection , i have a balck onix stone has anyone melted that with pearls wonder what it would turn out like

  3. this is so cool, i love that dude job making periodic real periodic table elements, thou i wonder how dangerous to make the other ones or atleast try to get them in a bottle,

  4. For these elements to be displayed on a periodic table, what is normally done for elements that give off a lot radiation?

  5. Awesome!

    Kinda want to see how badly damaged somebodies hand would be from just a single drop of that stuff touching their hand now. Morbid I know. lol

    What I'm really interested in though is where I can find furnaces like that to cook metal and casting molds to make sinkers and stuff.

  6. Would you like to hear an idea? We need to inspire the next generations to explore space. Asteroids in the asteroid belt are made of elements. there is most likely a couple hundred million of asteroids made out of pure gold, or carbon with centers of diamond, so if we have a practical way to get out there and back, we can progress by tenfold in the future.

  7. I tend to wear a welding visor when pouring out molten metals into a mould, along with a welders apron. If you incorrectly heat the mould, molten metal causes it to jump due to rapid thermal expansion, potentially giving you a molten metal shower.

  8. the um speak is strong with this one…painful to watch, seriously people. master your speech.  i mean, i'm not flawless grammar master either, but at least i don't just blurt out useless information every 3 seconds.

  9. hi, im a new jewelry maker and i dont understand the logic behind alloys. looks like silver 925 (with copper) melt at 800 deg even tough both metal have higher melting point. the fact that it's an alloy reduce its melting point? so if im right, i could take pure silver, add cooper and it would melt below 900 deg? Is it the same for all metals alloys like if i'd mix gold and silver?

  10. So they make actual tables. how to they display the radioactive isotopes? and also how to they display the Elements that only exist for short periods of time?

  11. a very wealthy individual who appreciates the periodic table that much is worthy of their wealth. I approve , lol. like it matters 😉

  12. I want a cylinder of silver! I'm not interested in selling it to make money or whatever. It's just so cool looking and shiny!

  13. A motorbike helmet and gardening gloves (I bought an identical pair at my local DIY shop for about £3). I see no expense is spared in ensuring safety is number one priority (to steal the catchphrase of another well-known YouTuber).

  14. A thousand Pounds in 2011, down to 270 only about four years later.
    And yet, before it crashed there were lots of people who were buying under the belief it would continue to soar. Some folks were confidently "forecasting" a peak of 4000 British Pounds per kilo. Some people timed it right and made a tidy profit. Many more folks got soaked.

  15. You truly realise this must be a true British movie when he comes up with the risk assessment xD
    Only in Great Britain, where even tiny risks can be made great again!

  16. I like how he's so very careful with the silver cylinder before casually denting it by accident with the graphite at 4:02

  17. Notice how that silver cylinder didn't have any tarnish or anything on it? Pure silver does not tarnish readily with anything other than hypochlorite, ozone, and sulfides. It also does not combine with oxygen at any temperature whatsoever. The characteristic dark color most Jewelers see comes from the 7.5% copper added to it.

  18. These cats doing risk assessments and donning great to melt metal…..
    Average youtube wannabe in shorts, sandals and using furnace made of trash.

  19. I would love to ask if they have two types the gold cylinder available in their displays, one of pure gold, and one with a lesser metal core surrounded by a decent amount of gold which is much cheaper. I would also like to know what purity of gold they use.

  20. Great job! Amazing to see gold and silver to made into these large cylinders! Besides gold and silver, what other metals, especially precious metals, that have been made into this kind of large cylinders?
