Tool Demo: Bohle Silberschnitt Repetitive Small Circle Cutter

Glass cutting is one of the most fundamental skills in kilnforming. Imprecise glass cutting affects not only the look and feel of your finished piece, but also leads to wasted glass and wasted time. In this video, Bullseye's Ted Sawyer demonstrates the finer points of the Bohle Silberschnitt Repetitive Small Circle Cutter, a Bullseye-tested tool that cuts circles from 0.5" to 7.5" (1.3 to 19 cm) diameter easily, accurately, quickly.

How to Aluminize Telescope Mirrors

Ensure you enable subtitles (click on "CC" bottom-right) to help where the sound is not audible. Modern optical telescope use mirrors and very few lenses. Unlike bathroom mirrors, where the shiny layer is sealed in to the back of the glass, telescopes use so-called “first surface” mirrors, with the reflective layer on top. This makes them difficult to clean. When they get dirty or as they loose reflectivity over time, they need to be re-aluminised. Professional telescopes in constant use, need their mirrors to be re-aluminised roughly every two years. The word “aluminising” suggests that aluminium is involved – which is indeed the case. A very thin layer of very pure aluminium gets deposited onto the mirror’s surface in a special vacuum deposition process. This video shows this process in detail, from beginning to end. Because aluminising is a fairly unique process, but since it is needed at every observatory, it is therefore commonly found at observatories. The South Africa Astronomical Observatory is no exception, and has a total of four aluminising tanks of different sizes, ranging from 330mm (13 inches) to 2 metre diameter. In this video we will be using the tank capable of handling up to 40-inch or 1 metre diameter mirrors in which we will be aluminising a mixture of professional and amateur mirrors – 5 mirrors in total.

This crystal can split light particles

How unusual non-linear crystals can entangle particles of light, or photons. Thanks to non-profit for sponsoring this video. Go to to learn more about MIT's Circuits and Electronics course or other classes from some of the top universities in the world. Quantum entanglement involves a special process of splitting photons into two. But it involves a process and a crystal that can split photons. How does that lead to entangled particles? To find out more about the specifics of how to entangle photons, check out this awesome video from whentheappledrops Creator: Dianna Cowern Research: Sophia Chen Thanks to: Jabril Ashe, Ashley Warner, Rebecca Holmes and Dan Walsh
