Adam Savage's Favorite Tools: Plastic Forming Strip Heater!

Today's tool tip is all about using heat in different ways to form sheet material, whether it's with a blow dryer, dedicated heat gun, or a specialized tool like a plastic forming strip heater. As employed in his recent build of his Iron Man Mark 1 costume, an industrial plastic strip heater can bend sheets of acrylic quickly and evenly, creating convincing parts that double as bent metal. Adam demonstrates how this heater works on one of his favorite materials: foam PVC!

Adam Savage's Indiana Jones Grail Diary Prop Replica!

Adam shares one of his oldest movie prop replicas: a recreation of Henry Jones's Grail Diary from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade! As an example of his early prop replicating adventures, Adam's Grail Diary was a product of the printing technologies available to him at the time as well as scarce (and low resolution) reference material found from a variety of sources including DVD extras and behind-the-scenes art books. Adam walks us through how he made this replica and shows us the pages within!

Ask Adam Savage: A Caution Against the "Comparing Mind"

Tested member End of the Trail Outdoors & Arts asked Adam, "You always seem to have a game plan of the exact material you are going to use before you begin [a build]. Is this part of your pre planning or does this come natural to you from years of experience working with different materials?" Here's Adam's answer, which turns philosophical (as Adam's answers often do). Join this channel to support Tested and get access to perks, like asking Adam a question:

Adam Savage's One Day Builds: Hyperdodecahedron Model Kit!

A perfect weekend project is this beautiful model kit: the Hyperdo from Zometools. Adam received one based on the recommendation of his good friend Kevin Kelly, and spends the day putting this complex geometric object together. It's a hyperdodecahedron--or more specifically the 3D projection of the 4D object known as the 120-cell. It's not a simple assembly, but the finished model is so very rewarding!
