    They make a drimmel tip that’s made for sandpaper and you tighten down a screw to hold the sandpaper to it

      Awesome vid as always! Regarding the wire you could've used Ni80 wire that is ment for vaping. Really easy to work with and you can get it to almost any color you'd like if heated slowly. Would be awesome to get a twisted wire along the groves that was dark violet, blue, silver and gold!

          And another question, why don’t you guys use a sandblaster to equally smooth out complex shapes with lot of edges and radius parts like on the handle guard ?

                            I know there's a difference between acceptable back then historically and sellable today but, most of the pieces you recreate are so perfect and precise they seem sterile to me, and less human made. If you presented your work to people back then you would probably be considered a witch and treated as such. In the future, I hope to see works crafted by hand with more raw outcomes. There's nothing wrong with a little casting imperfections here or there, misalignments, and spine to cutting edge measurement differences. Being able to see these imperfections inspires ones imagination, and wills them on a journey of how it was made drawing them into the piece more resulting in more attachment and wonder.

                                          if you wanted a wire that would oxidize or blacken you should have used "lockwire" or kanthal (used for vapes) both are similar chemistry and will blacken with heat.

They're just a prop company that bought a bunch of wholesale mediocre quality speakers and slapped a made up brand on them. I know all brands are technically made up, what I mean is that there is no company, no culture, no design process. This could easily be two people in their uncle's basement. That 65% off discount is also bogus. It's always available because it makes consumers think they're getting a deal on a great product. You can find the same exact speaker (I mean same exact, not comparable) on amazon for as low as $45 USD. I enjoy your content, Alec, but this feels like it was just about getting paid not taking care of your fans or wanting us to have a cool product.
