Conquering Clear Glass
Homemade clear glass

Follow by Email
After a very long journey and over 20 attempts, I finally find success in something that's continuously eluded me: making optically clear glass. Starting from resources I've collected from their natural source, I add one more ingredient to finally make this long-sought goal achievable. || In This Video || Our Camera Gear: - GH4: - FS5: - Dracast Light Panels: - GoPro Hero 5: - Karma Drone: || SUBSCRIBE || YouTube Channel: || SUPPORT || Patreon - Spreadshirt - Special Thanks to our Patrons at $15 per month or higher: Sandy Riis, Stian Andreassen, Daniel Laux, Winfield Jones, Liz Roth, Antonio Rios-Ochoa, Jenny Wolf-Matte, Quintin, Tim Reiche, Mats Nydesjö, Dylan Rich, Jason Lewis, Susan M.

Davy McCarty : Who came to the comments to see someone talking bout his haircut...

Cody'sLab : Now we need a liquid tin bath.

Touya Todoroki : Barber: *"How would you like your hair to be today?"* Boron Guy: *"Ever seen a chicken that went into a washing machine and got cleaned with borax soap to then be dried with a hair dryer"* Barber: *"I got you!"* 4:00

Cholula Hot Sauce : I don’t think anyone understands perseverance quite like you and the rest of HTME team. Congratulations!

Mihai Vlad : I don't see enough comments about the Boron Guy's hair

CoolbreezeFromSteam : That boron guy's hair looks like he had the greaser hair from the 50s, and just tried to keep it going as his hairline receded.

Xx_pro_minecraft_gamer_420_Xx : should've just smelt a stack of sand smh

The Rocket Nerd : “This is very basic. Let’s go get some pumpkin spice latte” I’m dying lmaoooooooo EDIT: I hope you realize he says this in the video. I didn’t make it

Kaitan : Many years ago i was in a "Glashütte". Baically a German Glass producer. they explained us there that to get rid of of the greenish tone from the Iron impurities they add "braunstein" which is, if my School chemistry doesnt fail me, Mangandioxid. While Iron is the yellowish green tone Mangandioxid will make it violett. Both are complementary colours so you end up with gray clear glass. Thats what they at least explained to us. But seeing as you mentioned making soap you propably knew that the Mangandioxid is know as "Glasmacherseife", Glas maker soap.

John Dough : 9:34, your dog wanted nothing to do with your fire

Richard Head : *_Clearly_*_ you've broken the glass ceiling of DIY technology._

Micah Philson : *YOU FINALLY CONQUERED IT!!!* The White Whale has finally been vanquished!

Helike Long : Man, I got weirdly happy to see you finally nailed it! I'm really proud to see how far you got in so little time and very proud to say I followed and supported since the beginning <3 Keep up with that incredible work you are doing, you're amazing and I'm a big fan <3

rasmus9311 : haha the glass in front of the camera was a very nice touch

ya yeet ya : *Just use the Minecraft recipe lmao*

Simba : The greenish color is due to iron impurities, which might be contained in your starting material. Or it is is just due to the multiple purings on steel plates.

Kurt Boczarski : Glass floats on molten tin... that how they use to make flat glass panes

Successful Slav : whats the big deal? just smelt some sand in a furnace and there you go, glass as easy as getting iron ingots

Jake MacTosh : What. Is. That. Hair?!

Lotsa Liv : Top boron sales 2017: slime

Dylan Britt : Lol who else just came down here to read how many comments about his hair there are XD. Edit: omg I just realized it’s hollow 6:30

Rae Rohan : I know you're probably sick of glass-working by now... but I kind of wanted to see a stained glass window. Maybe one day, in the future, you'll do a "making a house from scratch" series and include it then? Maybe that's just a little too ambitious though? 😅

Space duck : This man never gives up. What a boss

Angela Hsiao : Congratulations! You have leveled up! Unlocked: Clear Glass I feel weirdly proud, after watching this channel for so long part of me thought you just weren’t going to succeed, but you didn’t give up!

Icylapras24 : I know how to make clear glass easily. *you put sand in a furnace and smelt it*

// BeatLaunch \\ : He was so happy at boron!! Some may say, “Just like a kid at a borax mine!!!”

Micah : HTME: creates a video about boron and its many uses YouTube comments: *insert comment about dude's weird haircut here*

Ugandan Knuckles : Barber: wuchu want Shop Owner: you seen a wave Barber: say no more

Joshua Sutherland : Christ that guy had jojo hair.

White Blogger Black Specs : Borax guy's hair < arsenic in the borax

Kendrick Farrell : Forget making glass you should have used the transparent borax crystals to make lenses instead

themuffintoptv : Bro, didn’t they figure this shit out like.... a many hundreds of years ago

KENNY WIND YT : He's done something that Mojang hasn't been able to in Minecraft, CLEAR GLASS!!!!!

Daniel Eu : IM SO HAPPY TO SEE CLEAR GLASS FINALLY! I’m so proud of this channel it’s crazy! Seeing y’all get better and better equipment and closer and closer to great amazing dreams really makes me damn happy to watch! I really also like the new hexagonal dishes and the cleaner look of the lab. Congratz guys you really deserve the success

Neonz27 : There's a big difference between potash and pot-ash 😂

Literally Shitler : Oh, you learned how to make transparent glass? Well, I tied my shoes this morning. Checkmate, science dude.

Matt Long : Hi Andy, I really enjoyed the video. It's amazing to see how far you've come. Have you considered washing your sand with hot HCl to remove any trace iron impurities? When you dissolved your roasted sand/NaOH mixture and filtered out the insolubles, the color was reddish brown. To me, that suggests there were Fe(III) ions in solution. If you were to wash your sand in HCL with your sep funnel (followed by washing steps with distilled water) a few times before the roasting step, I bet you could greatly reduce the iron impurities. Anyways good luck.

Ataris : I can't stop looking at that man's hair. It looks like something from a tv show, but I just can't place it.

felix heng : Good job you finally did it after so may trails and error

jet li : I can't believe how detailed, informative, useful (to me sort of), and 20 Mules!!! Great vid!!!!!!!

Awgolas : I watched your first glasses video when it came out and my heart skipped when I saw the title "conquering clear glass". That is some dedication to your craft, props to you
