awesome product, but he doesn't seem very bright. there are actual safety gear for working with molten metals. also, did he need to worry about topping it off and spilling it everywhere? guess the appearance of safety is the main thing. and do they really need a sample so large? i assumed the cylinders would be cut into coin-sized samples. seems awfully wasteful, but that is the corporate model, now isn't it.
I cant be the only person who thinks just making a solid cylinder of any high priced anything to put on display is a severe waste of resources
Just how wealthy does one need to be? I’d be happy with much smaller samples...
I think half the fun for me having one of these would be making it myself.
Great job! Amazing to see gold and silver to made into these large cylinders! Besides gold and silver, what other metals, especially precious metals, that have been made into this kind of large cylinders?
You could get that silver for about $514 at today's prices.
Remember the time when £1 was $1.65
I would love to ask if they have two types the gold cylinder available in their displays, one of pure gold, and one with a lesser metal core surrounded by a decent amount of gold which is much cheaper. I would also like to know what purity of gold they use.
These cats doing risk assessments and donning great to melt metal.....Average youtube wannabe in shorts, sandals and using furnace made of trash.
1:42 did he just pocket that chunk of gold?
I'm getting one of these periodic tables for my house
Looks like plutonium
Notice how that silver cylinder didn't have any tarnish or anything on it? Pure silver does not tarnish readily with anything other than hypochlorite, ozone, and sulfides. It also does not combine with oxygen at any temperature whatsoever. The characteristic dark color most Jewelers see comes from the 7.5% copper added to it.
What would Alf do in this situation..seriously.
I hope he makes a table that has one mole of each each element
Just imagine how much precious metal chips are laying around the workshop
I like how he's so very careful with the silver cylinder before casually denting it by accident with the graphite at 4:02
i collect elements too D: but only got like 10 or so so far planned it'll be uploaded to my channel if i make any
You truly realise this must be a true British movie when he comes up with the risk assessment xD Only in Great Britain, where even tiny risks can be made great again!
Silver,my favorite metal element!
A thousand Pounds in 2011, down to 270 only about four years later. And yet, before it crashed there were lots of people who were buying under the belief it would continue to soar. Some folks were confidently "forecasting" a peak of 4000 British Pounds per kilo. Some people timed it right and made a tidy profit. Many more folks got soaked.
This guy massively reminds me of Gale Boetticher from Breaking Bad!
The first thing you must do is invent the universe, but once that's done...

Max is a great presenter
A motorbike helmet and gardening gloves (I bought an identical pair at my local DIY shop for about £3). I see no expense is spared in ensuring safety is number one priority (to steal the catchphrase of another well-known RUclipr).
I find this guy very charismatic
FYI a large periodic table set would cost £45-75k and a boxed set costs a little under £4,000.
6 grand is almost worth it for one...so sweet literally a dream of mine from childhood
Saw the thumbnail of the video and was like - it began with the forging of the great rings ...
What is their website? I want to know how much a real periodic table would cost. I really want one.
I think it is something the guy made for a model, I believe he used live versions of the elements, so I don't think they sell those
The description, maybe?
is there any dross?
Silver tarnish is not oxide, it is silver sulfide. The tarnish is a result of it reacting with sulphur in the air, not oxygen.
I would think so, since silver will form a tarnish (oxide layer) at room temperature.
At 1:26 I would have loved it if he ran away with the gold ASAP
About $40,000 worth today.
1000 pounds.... God damn he's strong!
No 1 kg is less than the smallest weights in a gym

+Bosk Boskson yea I know sarcasm
British pounds £ it's a currency
I want a cylinder of silver! I'm not interested in selling it to make money or whatever. It's just so cool looking and shiny!
@Lord Geezmo Oops, I misread that. :-)
Iridium is very expensive (about $675 per oz.). So probably not the best choice for making a cylinder out of. Silver is less than $17.
Or indium, it's pretty shiny and doesn't tarnish
Just make one out of tin
wauw... what a fantastic job to have
That is cool.
a very wealthy individual who appreciates the periodic table that much is worthy of their wealth. I approve , lol. like it matters ;)
Where would you buy a graphite crucible? I'm very interested in melting down some aluminum and brass.
Jewelry and silversmithing supply stores.
It doesn't need to be graphite do melt stuff like that
For mine you can just plate an iron cylinder with silver instead.
Or coat the inside of a glass cylinder with silver, then its like a cylinder mirror and costs like $3, even the steel cylinder alone would be $10(source: am a welder)
That cylinder of silver today is worth about £400, at the current spot price
a piece of silver fell when he was couring it
maybe he should cour it more carefully then
the finished cylinder looks like stainless steel
+Stephanie Sadie what i said was a opinion in regards of the cylinder
+Mario Cuevas (Mariobro82) No it doesnt. Stainless Steel and Silver when placed next to each other are clearly a different colour. SIlver is a more 'white' silver colour. Tellurium is even 'whiter'
What a waste of chemical elements to be stored on someone's wall. Children in Africa could've eaten these elements!
They could have drunk that boiling silver!
alisher1984 it's the children who are mining the gold.
RimaNari How ironic!
+alisher1984 Especially considering that it's those children mining many of those minerals for us...
This channel actually makes Chemistry fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So they make actual tables. how to they display the radioactive isotopes? and also how to they display the Elements that only exist for short periods of time?
Elements like astatine which last for extremely short periods of time are represented by other radioactive materials like uranium or francium that do decay into francium into some degree.
Perhaps they put them in lead infused glass jars.
I think they explain that on the original video.
probably most stable
Here, catch. Chucks over 10 grand.
how about making a video about talking properties about the said element -_-
(2015.11.01) Using today's silver and gold prices we get:1kg of silver = 499.5 USD1kg of gold = 36,710.6 USD
@χχкѕρ_ρlαуєяχχ Tak thanks merci gracias grazie gratias tibi
2019.2.31kg Ag -> 515.38 USD1kg Au -> 42,384.33 USD
JoseyWales93 can you update this
+GregoryTheGr8ster You have the wrong impression of governments. You need to keep anything precious away from them instead!
No sir. Governments no longer set the price of golf or silver; the market does that. Demand for gold governs its price: as more people want to buy gold, the price goes up to make two things happen: to get people who want to buy gold to want to buy less of it, and to get people who own gold already to sell some of it (so they have gold to sell to the people who want it). Conversely, when demand for gold goes down so does the price - they want owners of gold to not sell it (because every ounce of gold a metals dealer buys is another ounce they have to sell to someone else) and they want gold buyers to purchase more of it.
wow he lifts 1000 pounds so easy!
+Jim M Cheesy joke, but i laughed
you are a silly one.
