After hooking up a car battery to our Wolverine Claws, we decided to try cutting through some metal...SUBSCRIBE for more AWESOME Videos ► http://goo.gl/MU4hNAWolverine jacket from ► http://www.kustomkraftleather.com/For more info visit our blog ► http://www.hacksmith.tech/real-wolverine-claws-better-cgi/We originally built the claws several years ago during an internship at a local machine shop. Based off of the movie X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009), the claws measure 33CM (13”) and are made of high carbon steel, nickel plated for a mirror finish.They took approximately 20 hours to manufacture. The outline was waterjet cut, the blade details were machined on a CNC, it was hand ground to shape, and then TIG welded together. The entire assembly was then nickel plated to create a mirror finish. The claws were used for a few cosplay photoshoots, and even tested by catching 50lb hay bales in the attached video.To create a sparking effect better than the original CGI in X-Men Origins, a car battery was connected to the claws, positive on one claw, negative on the other. When connecting the claws together, the car battery is short-circuited, resulting in big sparks! These sparks can draw anywhere from 200-300A, which the car battery can safely provide (rated for over 1000A cranking). The sparks are actually tiny bits of superheated metal coming from the claws – so the effect does slightly damage the props. Basically, the claws are acting like a resistor – becoming red hot, melting, and shooting little bits of molten metal away at high-speed for a glorious effect.For any other questions about the project, please email [email protected] Become a Hacksmith member get exclusive perks! ► https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCjgpFI5dU-D1-kh9H1muoxQ/join►Early video access►Project design files (solidworks)►Merch Discounts►Colaborate with us on our videosSOCIALWebsite ► http://www.thehacksmith.caFacebook ► http://www.facebook.com/thehacksmithInstagram ► http://www.instagram.com/thehacksmithTwitter ► http://twitter.com/thehacksmithPatreon ► http://www.patreon.com/thehacksmithDiscord ► https://discordapp.com/invite/thehacksmithMerch ► https://www.hacksmith.storeSOFTWARE:Video Review / Collaboration ► http://r.frame.io/pZq3NVideo Editing ► Adobe PremiereCAD ► Solidworks CAMERA GEAR:Highspeed Cam - Chronos 1.4 ► https://goo.gl/t7eCGGMain shooter - Panasonic GH5s ► https://bhpho.to/2Fjd80NPhone - Samsung Note 8 ► https://bhpho.to/2DnDicXB Camera - Sony RX10ii ► https://bhpho.to/2Dp9r3yCamcorder - Sony Handycam ► https://bhpho.to/2FDnq81Slow Motion (960fps) - Sony RX10ii ► https://bhpho.to/2Dp9r3ySlow Motion (240fps) - Panasonic GH5s ► https://bhpho.to/2Fjd80NAction Cam - GoPro ► https://bhpho.to/2FxXDC4Steadicam - Osmo ► https://bhpho.to/2GreBj2Main mic - Sennheiser ► https://bhpho.to/2DsR8ecBendy Tripod ► https://bhpho.to/2FyLNb0Main Tripods - old second hand Manfrotto tripods no longer sold.TOOLS / MACHINES:CNC Plasma Cutter ► https://goo.gl/UurkwX3d Printers - Taz 6 ► http://amzn.to/2FVe3UqMoarstruder ► http://amzn.to/2DpbcOcFilament ► http://amzn.to/2FGnt2RCNC Mill ► https://goo.gl/7Cnk48CNC Lathe ► https://goo.gl/QUUjxTLaser Cutter - Gweike LG900N 80W ► http://lmgtfy.com/?q=lg900n3d Scanner ► http://amzn.to/2pwbvTuDrills, drivers, grinders, saws, etc ► http://amzn.to/2p9SPJ3Welder ► https://goo.gl/QmTT4SDesktop PC ► https://youtu.be/gSbt3LK8hCs Music:Intro - Hero Theme -MK200:16 - Demise - Ethan Meixsell02:23 - Bonus Points - Warmer Winds - 01 Shaken, Not Stirred03:14 - Let me GoEnd - Tractor pull - Silent PartnerWARNING: THESE VIDEOS ARE FOR ENTERTAINMENT PURPOSES ONLY.
