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!

    That’s odd, as silver is best metal conductor it should get warmer faster. Perhaps it’s becaus the gold ring was smaller and more in the middle of the coil

    Gold is actually worse conductor than copper. And silver is the best one. The silver ring has the least resistance, thus heating slower. But cool experiment.
