    Alec, you built a beautiful bachelor pad bed. If you partner up with a woman, and she lives with you, guess what, that beautiful bachelor pad bed is going to the scrap heap. Sorry, but that’s the way it works. Take it from one who is old enough to be your dad. Stay young, and stay single.

    W Beam? What the heck is a W Beam? Don't you mean I Beam? Or some might call it H Beam. Depends how you look at it I guess. But having been in the sheet metal business for a good while, where I come from it was always called I Beams.

      W beam is more commonly called wide flang beam. The flanges are much wider. An I beam has shorter flanges and a thicker web.

    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.

  • Brad Turner

    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
    brandon melgarejo 3 months 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 4 months 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 4 months 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 4 months 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
