  5. you can use special drills wich alows to “burry “ the conic head of the screw, this way you get a flat surface underneath the foil

  6. Dan, the right way of drilling acrylic is actually low speed, alowing the drill to cut, especially with thicker acrylic, when you want precision for the holes. sorry for my english, i`m east european

  8. If you want to be taken seriously.

    Get a REAL channel. One with REAL videos. Not a piss poor “private” one.
    Otherwise, FOAD. Period.

  10. Aluminum is shiny, but it doesn’t have the highest albedo; you get the best results from alumized Mylar.

    And no, you couldn’t fuse aluminum cans together with a lens. You’d need a TIG, or a Plasma welder.

  11. I like the kit, but the best one I’ve seen has the Focal Point as the Pivot Point. Where’s the Pivot Point on this?

  13. People complain about patent trolls, but why don’t they complain about patent thieves?

    Go check the operating system on your computer and let me know if they’ve ever been convicted as a Monopoly.

    Apple learned to patent EVERYTHING and trust NOBODY. Can you guess why?

  14. Wow! I am hooked. I have been watching several of your videos now and this just amazes me. I want to start building my own panel as soon as I learn more.

  15. would polished aluminum be more reflective and durable and even cost effective if you could, say for instance, cut sheets from soda cans and fuse them together with careful use of a lens and some weight? Seems like a lot of work, but it wouldn’t cost anything.

  16. That “Awesome” cleaner you get at the dollar store truly is awesome! A little of that stuff go’s a long way and theres nothing I have found that it wont clean. I usually water it down too

  17. Maybe I missed it Dan, but why did you choose to use Acrylic & Tape vs. Stainless for the mirror lining? Thanks in advance.

  19. Where can one buy this part A material?

  20. What gauge steel sheet was that? And it’s 24″ x 48″?

    By BigKatz on May 23, 2013

  21. I am wondering if it would be a good idea to add a washer between the screw head and the acrylic sheeting to disperse pressure away from the hole in acrylic and over greater surface area…It looks like you are using an angled underside on your screws. I wonder if it was be better to use a flat surface screw.

  22. this channel is AWESOME! Love it!

  23. I’ve been cutting acrylic that way for years. Picture framers use acrylic instead of glass for certain jobs. Just look at a framing tools site. Fletcher Heavy Duty Acrylic/Plexi Cutter

  24. When you place this out in the sun should you elevate it based on latitude like with a standard solar water heating panel?

  25. when you asked your cat to hold your screwdriver,there is a trick to that because cats don’t have thumbs. You have to get them to “Keester” the screwdriver. Its a trick they teach you in Jail
