Testing Dangerous Life Hacks: DIY Hot Glue Gun

Jun 06, 2021
Welcome to the hot

glue

gun challenge! Our goal is to

glue

this piece of wood to this piece of cardboard using this homemade hot glue gun. Ah! *cough* Hello! I was up pretty late last night for a big

life

hack binge-watching session. Oh Lord. Nothing makes my blood boil more than a good

life

hacks

video. Well, bad life hack video. I think I might be jealous of the views. I mean, how can something so bad work so well? Today we are going to try one. Oh, and thank you Christian, William and Weasley for this lovely cat t-shirt.

Here's a photo of Weasley. Oh, and the other two, but Weasley is the cat. The trick in question is how to make an electric hot glue gun at home, DIY. But... alas! AHA. There is a warning. My videos are provided for entertainment and viewing purposes only. Please don't try to do what I do in my videos. None of... none, none... Brrrbrbrbr. You know it has this literal two-second disclaimer. A thousand... is a second. It's a one-second disclaimer that tells you not to do this, but makes it sound like you absolutely should. What do we need to build this mess?

More Interesting Facts About,

testing dangerous life hacks diy hot glue gun...

Can, like a soda can, will be the container that melts the hot glue. This is where it gets good. What's that? Is it like steel, like wrapping wire? It doesn't look like nichrome wire. It just looks like tie wire. This is all well and good until you end up soldering it to a mains socket. I mean, look at this thing. What will that do other than catch fire? 2.3 million visits. Oh and I... I feel like no one has really tried... do people really try to do life

hacks

? No? I hope they don't, because they're stupid and half of them aren't even life hacks.

This is a danger to life. You never actually plug it in. You see him plug it into a power strip, and then the power strip plugs in, and then the cables disconnect from the screen. Like there is NO WAY he would put this up against the wall. Because I can tell you exactly what would happen when he plugged himself into the wall. No no no. We will show you. We'll show you exactly what happens when you plug this into the wall. Plus we're going to have to cut cardboard by hand because we don't have a laser.

We have cardboard. We have cable. Oh no. I sent the cats' butts flying. Hot glue, a pen, a knife and instructions here. Shall we start with the cardboard first? But ah... look at all this cardboard that I'm collecting little by little. I kept all my cardboard under the couch. It was a lot of cardboard. I wonder what that looked like on fire. What if I draw it right now and we make a montage that looks like this with the same type of music they use? Look, we deleted it, but I put it back, but I put it back in the wrong place.
Look, it doesn't line up, but now we're going to film them pushing it out. I really hate that life hack angle. It's like, I don't know, man. They complain too much. Oh God. Are there more pieces to cut? Do you know how long this took? Th- We're using hot glue No. I say, I'm not going to use Elmer's glue. Do you know how long that takes to dry? But I'm going to remove this tape from Amazon. You are rolling the aluminum foil upside down. Shut up, refrigerator. How do we turn that off when our food goes bad?
Do you think it matters if the label comes off? It shows the label, but now I feel like people watching will say, "Oh, you did it backwards. That's why it caught on fire." And I said, "No! It's because you put like 300 watts in it." What am I doing? This is so stupid. Ahhh! This is the part I'm definitely most excited about: wrapping the heating element. I think you're using something exactly like this, and how many turns does it make? It's also using larger glue sticks, so I'm not sure how much we're skewing the results, but 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7. N– Ok. (Laughs) You know what?
Let's do some science right now. If we have 7 turns of that steel wire, this quantity measures... Oh God. 0.6 ohms! So the root mean square of your power is 120. Power is related to voltage and current, but since your voltage is changing, you can't just say what your house's power is multiplied by its current. You find the root mean square, which is like the equivalent DC voltage of your AC power, and that becomes 120. So your AC power is actually, I think it maxed out at 170 volts. So we call 120 divided by 0.6. That's 24 kilowatts! (laughs) Is that so? Sometimes I get the numbers wrong, but I think they might actually be right.
The thing is literally going to blow the brakes... No, it's not. It's going to melt. Ah, man, I'm so excited to plug this into the wall. Let's go ahead and add more wires just in case, because we want to increase the resistance as much as possible. My plan right now for wrapping the cable is to glue the hot glue stick, then clamp the zip tie around it, then wrap the steel. Do you have something like a MASSIVE looking cone? I don't like. What is the goal: simply to replicate it as closely as possible? So maybe I'm just, um, the trick of life: life doesn't choose you.
No no. No no no. He does it. You don't choose it. Wow, I slaughtered him! I really don't know what I'm doing. I think that's been evident all along. Let's be reckless. Well, that may have been too reckless. Let's put this together and then come back when we're ready to plug it in. Good transition, William. Oh, did I wear it backwards? Alright, let's film this bad boy. He took it out! Why do we even try? This thing is literally five minutes away from being engulfed in flames. I say we'll just pretend it's going to work, plug it in (laughs) and see what happens.
So we ran to the store to buy some instruments. Ba-da ding ding ding ding ding ding ding. Maybe we shouldn't plug this into the RV. Let's plug it out there. They already burned my house. I don't want two houses to burn down. Oh thank you. Welcome to the hot glue gun challenge. Our goal is to glue this piece of wood to this piece of cardboard using this homemade hot glue gun (laughs) following a life hack tutorial that I'm 90% sure that... this is going to... this thing will hook right away. on fire. Um, we have a current meter, a clamp meter, and a temperature sensor and I think we just plug this bad boy in.
Oh God. Are you ready? You have audio? Can you hear? This is going to go straight... Oh wow! Oh my God. Thanks, life hacks! Wow, that completely melted, so I'm about to make a big no-no and have some...what I like to call exposed electrical grid. Okay, everyone put on your glasses. This is just a horrible example of security. Very good, today we are going to learn how to solder. *sparks* Ahh! Close your eyes. What is it about the end that shines like that? Oh, that's... that's just a steel wire pumped with, like, thousands of watts. *sighs* They kicked us out of the RV, I think with good reason.
More sparks. That's

dangerous

. Alright, here we go. We live live again. Show me what you have! Today we're basically playing with the grid voltage at this point, which is probably a very bad example to set. Overload? How many amps is that? I can't believe someone put instructions on the internet that basically show you how to burn down your house, your RV, or wherever you currently live. I wonder if he was on 220 too. Is that plug 220? If that connects 220, it's even worse than this. We didn't link you to the original video because it's basically instructions and he hides, like...
How could you NOT connect it, and once you connected it, how could you still post a video? Thanks life hacks, for, I don't know, being terribly irresponsible. It says it's just for entertainment purposes, but come on. The cable he used, even if it's not the one he... the one we used, he didn't specify what it was. For example, you need to say what cable you're using, and if you don't, it's open to interpretation! If you have a life hack you want us to do, I don't even want to say debunk it. What's the word? If you have any tricks you want to try, leave them in the comments.
Anyone want to win this hot glue gun... It's actually a horrible idea. Bye bye! Could we, uh, ah, thanks, I always wanted a hot glue gun that worked. And the winner of the sweet hot dog poster giveaway is on the screen. No, it's not Allen Pan, what? But there's Allen Pan. What... didn't I win? No, you didn't win. Although I left a comment. Kay, goodbye! (laughs)
