I'm Steve's age and do my best to pass on what little (compared to Steve) I know. But guys, it's not free. It's now on *you* to work hard, think hard, and invent *new* stuff to pass on to guys your age when you get to be Steve's age. I think you're up to it, so go for it!

Ok hear me out... The blade is the sword. Make a scale pattern wooden handle then use two raptor talons for the guard and a mosquito in amber pommel with "clever girl" engraved on the handle.

Hi, ..... I thought you were going to make the lid for the canister fit "inside", the canisters end so you could compress it with whatever whilst you weld it shut. ?????

Simpli safe can be defeated in 2 seconds flat by holding your car’s keyless entry button down while a couple feet away from a simpli safe door sensor. Then just open the door or pry the door open; the alarm wont go off. The car remote’s use the same frequency and jam the simpli safe sensor. Since simpli safe would call the police every time someone opens their car, it is designed not to alert for small disruptions like that. Not worth my money.

This is another video in a long list of videos where you failed to keep yourself in focus. Please figure that out. It sucks when my attention is taken away by your background being perfectly in focus and you’re just a smidge out of focus.

Wet paper towel works too for a self peeling canister. If it's not already been mentioned. The ash forms a layer just as the soot does in this instance or while MIG welding.

The stainless steel trick is neat, I wonder what the mechanics of it are (for instance why does charring the inside of a can not work? it's clearly not just soot)

Packed in his luggage in the aircraft luggage hold- a wise man might also have informed the airline, so an over eager bag masher didn't freak if they saw it on X ray. I've traveled internationally with well bore samples that have been "confused" with weapons, and had very little trouble , except in the USA; TSA training lacks a bunch.

Simpli safe is a great system. But one thing you should know is there sensors are easy to set off. I was at a paint job and the owner had simpli safe. And we were taping along the window. Well the tape ended up setting the alarm off.

This just shows you how you can't beat experience. Using stainless to line the canister. This guy has been around for a long time and has probably tried everything in the book.

Thank you so much for such a cool video, I hate hearing about the lack of manufacturing in the US and then I see this video and it just reinvigorates the love I have for the US and our artisan skills. I also thank Steve for willing to show his techniques to us for us to learn. Great appreciation for what you do.
