Handheld Induction Heater Melts a Lock!

  • 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!

    nobody's talking about him inserting the light bulb in the induction heater with his face next to it. I wouldn't risk this since there is the slight possibility of the glass destroying your face

    See the red flame at 3:50 with the molten lithium coming out? OK, now imagine that flame being about 2 metres long burning from wall to wall of a narrow passage with lithium droplets shoot from one wall to the other. Now imagine that your only emergency exit is on the other side of that flame, all the fire extinguishers and the oxygen masks have been used up and the air conditioning is off, so the air is getting pretty thick with smoke. And of course the next fire brigade station is 400km below your feet.
    That's more or less what happened onboard the MIR in 1997.
