    ERG brings exhaust gasses in to combustion chamber to lower the oxygen content

  15. C Scherbarth says:

  16. Probably should let them know that they need heat treat and tempering to keep an edge

  17. Are those blanks heat treated?

  18. I just watched a man lick exhaust fumes

  19. Sean DePoppe says:

  21. Cat a lit ick converter lol. Always wondered how much money is in stripping these down.

  22. Bryan bortko says:

    Cadillac converter lol

  23. You do know that you really don't want to touch that stuff bare handed right. There's a lot of stuff in that that would make you sick as a dog.

  24. Kev says:

    I actually need that catalytic converter…… Oooof

  25. The glitter looks like mica flakes.

  26. Paracord lol. For military, we call it 550 cord.

  27. duckslayer92 says:

    You really shouldn't lick catalytic convertors, I believe the insides are carcinogenic. Outside of that funny great video

  28. Ally Sloper says:

    One of these days you are going to lick something and it is going to kill you.

  29. My wife told me she was sweet in all the rite spots., so i decided to lick a few……

    If your wondering how it went., i will let you know when i have sensation in my face.

  30. "I'm going to lick it longways" lmfao

  31. Hless421 says:

    Breaking news. YouTube celebrity gets cancer from licking muffler.

  32. All I see is cutting things with a waterjet…. Until you actually show how to mine platinum from the catalytic converter… Thumbs down for click bait.

  33. bob barker says:

    The thing you called a c3po is actually a canooter valve 😂😂😂

  34. I’m so glad I’m not the only one who calls the Cadillac converter a Cadillac converter.

  35. Those are ceramic honeycomb coated in palladium/rhodium and then platinum. The platinum and palladium is less than 3 atoms thick. So you’d have to bust down literally hundreds of those and then refine the metal to get any real amount of platinum.

    Is that Walter White?

  37. tiny 1 says:

  40. Those damn Cadillac converters!!!

  41. Cadillac???? Lol 😅😂🤣

  42. Patrick Kim says:

    You should focus less on knives for cutting but more on throwing knives. Then you don’t have to market it to diy, but with a quick grind, you can sell the knife as a complete product. Quality throwing knives are few and far between and expensive (Dm me for my reward)

  43. Pinkie Love says:

    You’re licking stuff made me unsubscribe , Too weird for me
