His wife is the best. I wonder if her deadpan reactions are just for the videos, or if life with an engineer has made her that way.

If there's anything a 20 minute video needs, it's five commercial breaks. With another commercial at the end. Thanks, Adtube.

So something that sucks at being a nutcracker?

How much electricity would it take to fire those blanks instead of using a moving firing pin?

I've seen more effective ones

I'm not sure what kind of sick person subby is, but this is an obvious SCARY tag.

Gun control thread?

I showed Mrs Soopey your post. In a very deadpan voice she said, "I can answer that question...."

Check out the baseball bat and golf clubs he made.

Quite a bit. Depends on the actual Joule force that the bullets are creating. A .45ACP round exerts around 500J of energy over let's say approximately 1ms. That's 500kW of energy, even at half that speed, it's still 250kW

Ad blockers still work on YouTube. For now.

I just ended up buying Premium, but I also watch a ton of YT.

i tried a 12v and 18v power supply. the 10ga wire melted before the rimfire primers popped
i think with thicker wire it should work with low voltage, but it's going to require a fair amount of amperage to heat up hot enough to pop.

120v kept popping the breaker.

if you could find some steel cased rimfire rounds it would probably work better for electric ignition.

the wire's insulation melted. not the actual copper

a car battery pops them in about 5 seconds. The other 12v battery I was using was a SLA and I dont think it could put out enough amps fast enough to heat the brass up before the wires started getting hot.

18v should work, its a li ion cordless drill battery. I was worried about shorting out the cells of that one though, so it was probably close to popping when i disconnected it from the primer.

i tried to find my electric meter, but i cant find it so I don't know exactly how many watts you need, but hopefully it answers your question.
