    I at first thought Adam said "Builder Ann" until I saw the "Bill Doran" on the screen! Nominative determinism anyone?

    @28:21 "That's what I also love about this specific hobby, is how accessible it is" after being told that the foam that was used is only $5 worth, and while using a real armor arm shield and heavy equipments and laser cutter that I will have to starve myself for 2 years to be able to get.

    I want to learn how to make armor, but I can't seem to find a good enough guide to recommend the most cost efficient and appropriate eva foam to use. Like should I order online, or go to my local home depot and get those huge tile squares in a 6 pack for $25 which measure 24" x 24" x .375" ? The glue and heat gun seem simple enough, and I just recently had an epiphany about how templates are made/can be made.

    I guess one way you get and stay worth $8 million is to charge people $40 a year to watch content you are going to do anyway. (and charging WAY too much for a t-shirt) I guess I shouldn't complain about $3 a month. But even that is a lot for "starving" students and other lacking-in-financials people. I might do it. I hope it's worth it.

    I’d love to have a mechanical arm, and just wear sleeveless shirts just so people could see by armored mechanical arm, then paint it the same color as the gauntlet, it’d looks so badass! Then I’d be a mechanical armored cyborg, I’d proudly take that title.

    I have several sheets of 20 Gage .032" 40"×66" aluminum I got as scrap, I rescued them from the trash pallet. I want to make your gauntlet out of that material. Is the pattern strictly for foam? Or will it work with my aluminum.

    The foam looks super awesome but you don’t get that super satisfying metallic clinking noise. I wonder how hard it would be to do with aluminum 🤔 I don’t know how hard it would be to get the right color with aluminum either
