    I have an experiment for you king of random.
    I really like your videos and I have seen you help ppl with curiosity
    I wanted you to do this small experiment.
    Take three jars
    Label them 1,2,3
    One should be able to handle high pressure and other low pressure and the other one a normal one.
    Put water in those containers and then pressurize, vaccumize(if that's a word) and then put all the three containers in the freezer.
    Then which one freezes faster and which one slower.
    Explain in details
    Thank you.
    Like if you want him to do the experiment
    Edit: you can replace water with other liquids to insight us more or for fun!

    I wonder if you can take a 3D print made with a metal filled filament and get it to electroplate to come out more like a caste metal statue... Might be a whole new way to do certain 3D printing finishes.

    Steel should be nickel plated first. Then copper.

    Hi Gant great vid as usual. Was looking for 'Poor Mans Gold Plating' as I have a bunch of cuff-links that I'd like to gold plate, but didn't want to fork out £900 for one of those gold plating machines.
