The Power of a Mini Arc Furnace, Metal Melting Madness…

The King of Random Grant Thompson has been putting his DIY skills to work once more and this time he has emerged from his man shed with a working home-made mini arc furnace. With the ability to generate temperatures in the thousands of degrees the plasma arc torch at the heart of the furnace is one of the modern tools that has allowed much of our current technological advancement to continue. A tool that allows us to create and work with new and more advanced metals.

Presented for your pleasure is the mini arc furnace in action reducing solid metal into liquid within the blink of an eye. Remember when trying this at home to have all fire safety precautions in place. Sit back, relax and prepare for the sparks to fly, this one is spectacular.
