How To Make an Iron Man Arc Reactor with a Sink Strainer

YouTube network AWE me has a series called DIY Prop Shop in which Dustin McLean makes props movies and games from household items for less than fifty dollars. McLean has tackled the hoverboard from Back to the Future, a Terminator arm, and Iron Man’s Arc Reactor so far. Even if you don’t plan to make the exact props, the videos are worth watching in order to see how McLean looks for and uses everyday, household supplies. You can take his techniques and apply them to other projects — being resourceful will save you time and money. For example, he builds Tony Stark’s Arc Reactor from a sink strainer/drain insert, a LED cap light, and copper wire. He picked up all the supplies at a local hardware store.
