  • Published on Mar 10, 2019
  • Go to wix.com/backyard to get started on your no cost Wix website today -- maybe it's for a science fair, resume, or portfolio! And check out my Wix website for more info on the induction heater! www.backyardscient.ist/induction-heater

    Ive always wanted to make my own induction heater, but this one is only the beginning. Im planning to make a more powerful one to do more stuff with molten steel!

    The reason guns are loud is mainly due to the bullet breaking the sound barrier. Without a barrel it can’t do so, that’s why it wasn’t loud. I doubt the melon had much to do with the sound deadening. Also, without a barrel, the bullet wouldn’t have gone anywhere and it most likely wouldn’t become a lethal projectile.

    a battery did that on my bed one night... thats no joke. fyi to whom it may concern, do not keep several circular watch type batteries together like in a cup or any container with vertical volume tall enough to... just dont keep watch batteries or any kind of batteries together with exposed terminals because eventually a pair will short eachother out and you will have a surprise fire bomb you cant put out right away, and toxic gas. or even worse it could happen while nobody is home and potentially burn the house down. you should keep batteries in a glass or metal container for this reason, even single batteries can blow them selves up like 30 min or so after last use if they have been damaged, you can have an internal short that is not really showing immediate signs like becoming extremely hot right away, but slowly and surely becoming hotter and hotter until it self combusts, or the voltage just peters out. that happened in my pocket one time. on a brighter note, wap a few of those watch batteries in tin foil and throw em at you friends or siblings and they pop like a 22 cal.bullet, pritty neat!

    You should add a remote switch to power on and off your induction heater to add a bit of a safety feat to your device
