How I made a knife with this forge: http://youtu.be/g_teUu22sGQ

This video shows how to make a simple and inexpensive tabletop forge out of a soup can with a plaster lining. The forge runs off of a common propane torch (spiral flame will work better than pencil flame) that can be bought at any hardware store. The question has been asked about what sand can be used. Any sand.

The exact torch used in this video is a Bernzomatic TS8000, you can purchase the same torch here (this is an affiliate link): http://ebay.to/1F2HEiM

The idea for this video was inspired by this website, so take a look: http://www.zoellerforge.com/coffee.html

The weather's warming up! In this video I put together a DIY Ice Cream Cold Plate and make some seriously good ice cream. Give it a try!

It's been brought to my attention that dry ice is not legal in some countries. You can make ice cream in the same way on a thick piece of steel or stone that has been left in the freezer overnight. You just have to work fast because it won't stay cold enough for very long.

In this video I build a high power air cannon using a PVC piston from my previous video (seen here): https://youtu.be/BCZGWvieJ7I

In case you're wondering how this cannon valve operates, I demonstrate the internal function at the 5:35 mark in this video.
The sprinkler valve I use at the end of the video was modified as shown here: https://youtu.be/ymfrrX5kIvM?t=1m16s

I was thinking to myself a while ago that it would be really cool if I could launch steel wool high into the air to create a fiery comet effect. As I was pouring over ideas I thought, why not just make fire arrows? It turned out to be quite simple.

Here are two more airsoft creations that can be made out of common materials.

Since the creation of this video I have ceased using PVC for air pressure use. This video remains for entertainment purposes only. For pressurized air containment, please only use cylinders and fittings made specifically for that purpose.

If you missed my previous video in which I first showed how to make an airsoft machine gun from a soda bottle, it can be found here: http://youtu.be/r_8wRpgvhyg #NightHawkInLight

How to make a tornado machine with an open air vortex! You've probably got just enough time to build this before Halloween. Most other designs that use only a single fan require the tornado to be fully enclosed, which means you can't actually reach in and touch it. With this design you can play with the vortex hands on. Consider supporting my channel on Patreon! Link: https://www.patreon.com/NightHawkProjects

The fan I used for this project can be found with a search for '6 Inch Inline Duct Fan'. That will probably be the most expensive part at around $60-80. I run the fan on it's lowest setting so you may be able to get away with using a 4 inch fan which would be less expensive, but it may be louder as it would run at higher speeds for the same airflow.

The ultrasonic foggers are the other unusual part used in this project, and you can find those here (this is an affiliate link): http://ebay.to/2aQK5Sk

The music used in this video is the song 'Natural' by Dolphin-Mind

Building a carbon arc torch has been one of the simpler projects I have tackled lately, but I think it will also prove to be one of the most practical. Without an oxy/acetylene torch there are few other options that can heat seized nuts quickly enough to free them from a rusted bolt. Vehicle repairs will certainly go smoother in my shop with this torch on hand.

It's been on my mind how important charity is in the world right now, and especially for those who were already in desperate need before current events. I will just add one charity here that I hope some will give to, but if you have other charitable preferences I encourage you to donate wherever you feel it will do the most good. https://childrenshungerfund.org/give

Here is a non-lethal trap design that can be used for any number of animals, from small game to birds. It can either be set along a game trail to be triggered passively by creatures passing by, or bait can be applied to the horizontal trigger stick. For very small animals the trap and loop of rope should be made smaller for best success, and for very large animals it can be made using stronger rope and a bigger tree as the spring.

There are different regulations for trapping animals depending on the location, and this trap may be illegal in some areas. Check the local laws before building traps of any kind. In general I only recommend traps be used in actual survival situations where obtaining food is a necessity. The trap in this video was disassembled after filming.

The knots used in this video were a bowline and a slip knot. I have a video demonstrating how to tie a bowline here: https://youtu.be/Q9NqGd7464U

In this video I build a bat signal from a lensed flashlight beam. This design can be used to project any image, or simply act as a spotlight. For the light source I'm using the Imalent MS18 flashlight, which you can check out here (this is not a paid endorsement, but I was sent the flashlight for free to use in this project): https://www.imalentstore.com/p....roducts/imalent-ms18

Similar fresnel lenses as the one I used in this video are available on eBay. I used a lens 250mm in diameter with a 500mm focal length. You can find some here (this is an affiliate link): https://ebay.to/2In1Nzt

This project is quick and easy to put together, yet really impressive. Even more so in person than in the video. The flashlight I used for this video is a ThruNite TN12. It's awesome. Links to check it out are further down in the description, so click 'Show more'!

Thanks to ThruNite for sponsoring this video! I bought the TN12 for myself because it truly is an awesome light that I'm very happy to recommend. It's a high quality flashlight with a great price, thanks to factory direct sales. You can check it out in ThruNite's official store here: http://www.thrunite.com/ Or in the ThruNite Amazon store (Links to ThruNite Amazon stores outside the US are posted further down): http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00IEWOCP0/

With this flashlight conversion I was lighting up trees as bright as day at 300 yards and further. By adjusting the flashlight's position on the block the light can be made to focus to either a narrow beam for maximum range, or a softer spot to provide more even lighting.

The makeshift bat signal shown later in the video was created as an afterthought to the main project and it really turned out great. That could be a fun one to use around town.

Parts:
(1) Flashlight (I used the ThruNite TN12)
(2) 2x2 Inch Planks (Approximately 30 inches in length for the base, but the focal distance can vary depending on the lens. The second block should be as long as the flashlight used.)
(3) Large Magnifying Glass (Mine was 5 inches in diameter)
(4) Velcro Straps (Or large rubber bands)

Optional:
(5) Black Spray Paint
(6) Tripod
(7) Nail
(8) Craft Foam/Cardboard (For cutting shapes to project in the beam)

In this video I show how to convert inexpensive truck mirrors into powerful first surface solar concentrators. Check out my sponsor Brilliant for a really fun way to learn! https://www.Brilliant.org/NightHawk

First surface mirrors are an extremely efficient way of concentrating solar energy, much more efficient for their size than a fresnel lens. This type of mirror is also essential for optical applications.

Cutting steel with electricity and water. I've been playing with how to this method for the past few weeks and am having some trouble, but I know it's possible.
Check out this video to see where I got my inspiration: https://youtu.be/jEnNMTMZadw
I tried this same method at one point a few years ago and had better results than I have so far been able to replicate in my latest experiments. Possible causes that I'm considering:
1. The metal etching paint formula has been changed
2. Paint requires a longer time to cure
3. Baking soda is not an acceptable replacement for salt (I used baking soda in these latest tests because it does not produce chlorine gas as NaCl does)

Let me know what you think in the comments below!

Parabolic mirrors are useful for everything from solar power to telescopes to holographic projection. They're usually very difficult to make by traditional means, but this video takes a different approach.
Check out my sponsor Rayton Solar here: http://bit.ly/Rayton-Solar
With their incredible silicon cutting process via a particle accelerator they're able to make solar panels with virtually zero waste and a higher efficiency result.
