    Hello Alec, Will, and Jason. Loved the episode , I also appreciate the help information about spray arc welding using a might welder. I'm unable to find anyone information about setup or pressure settings to do the argon co2 o2. I asked at my local welding store but they didn't know what I was talking about. Is there any chance at making a video or giving me a link where I can try the setup.

    All of your gas canisters MUST be fastened to a sturdy place, usually a stud in your wall. You need an OSHA consultant. Fines get expensive.

    That will hurt as much as a tow hitch ball. Only difference is that you can fall onto your mattress while you cus blind and hold whats left of your shin. I also predict that this will occur in the middle of the night on the groggy way back from the toilet. Enjoy the shin divots.

    brandon melgarejo Month ago

    I know its just for a bed but if you were to cope the ends of the beam like that for a building you would round the edges where the flange n web meet. Because having a sharp corner is a weak spot for it to potentially start tearing. - its what i do for a living.

    if you find the mattress is lumpy over time, replace those slats with just flat plywood. you dont need a boxspring with casper, but the flat surface under makes a huge difference

  • Wojciech Migda
    Wojciech Migda Month ago

    Really love every episode, but you should consider a little mechanics in things like this bed (moment of inertia or section modulus etc.), It would improve your designs even more. I highly recommend that you have a look at R.C. Hibbeler: Statics and dynamics - great book!
    Can't wait to see the next episode :-)!

  • Wojciech Migda
    Wojciech Migda Month ago

    Nice, heavy bed ;-). One thing I don't understand, why didn't you make the knife plat a little longer, so you could weld it on both ends to the flanges? Would make the connection a whole lot sturdier....

  • Alessandro Filippi
    Alessandro Filippi Month ago

    Is too big and must weight a ton... also, I am sure you are going to painfully hit the outside frame with your feet all the time. Really not a very smart design. And all this is for selling a few shitty casper mattresses... just avoid the lie of saying you are actually going to use this piece of junk for real
