More heartless stress testing. This time the victim is the 8-tooth gear. Is the newer Type 2 version stronger? Let's find out. Technic, Gear 8 Tooth Type 1 [3647] Technic, Gear 8 Tooth Type 2 [10928] The results (using PF M-motor): 1:1 (4 Ncm) - ok 3:1 (12 Ncm) - fails against another 8-tooth gear 5:1 (20 Ncm) - ok against a gear rack 9:1 (36 Ncm) - ok against a gear rack 15:1 (60 Ncm) - fails against a gear rack the results were the same for Type 1 and Type 2


Vsauce Puppet : We have gotten to the point that we will take revenge on bits of plastic by making torture machines out of other bits of plastic Lego is one of the best inventions ever

Gavin s : The sound of the building is so satisfying


seasong : This really grinds my gears

Hugo Gresse : hmph! 🤣

Bisqwit : I haven’t seen that type 2 gear before. When/where was it introduced?

Thomas den Bakker : Skidadle Skidoodle your gear is now a noodle

Eternal : Ah that intro. So relatable!

Victoria Lauren : Don't give up, you'll find a way to get to 100 Kilos yet! 😄

wizard taco man : 1:55 when a lego steps on a lego

Just an Egg : The sound of the bricks going together is sooooo satisfying

CJonthelake : 0:04 that “hmph” I’m dying now 🤣🤣

Gen : 1:55 when a lego piece randomly phases out of existence

Short Stop Motions : and as always: those painful pieces of plastic can handle more then i can

Salini K. Bowen : This man is a legend, voluntarily stepping on a lego for a video intro

DudeTheNinja : The older gear handles the high values better, since only the teeth are damaged, but Type 2 just snaps in two.

Sskrimp_TeX • : So you are torturing a baby gear just because you left it out and stepped on it? How cruel can someone be! legos have feelings too!

Esven : Out of question are there any sensors or measuring instruments this channel is in need of? I'm not sure if I'll be able to help too much but I'm an electrical engineer with some tools at home so if you let me know what you need it's possible I can help.

LR Nappa : 0:02 R.I.P your foot 😭

Carum Sarene : I would actually say Type 2 is worse. It seems to be made of a softer plastic than the Type 1. For buildable figures, I came across a few issues: •The pieces are semi-flexible, meaning no stiff connection. •The pieces aren't correctly measured to fit on axels, meaning they can slip off half pins. (All my Type 2 gears I squished to avoid this issue) •Despite intending to be used for friction, they lose friction easily. It's depressing to know that my 2001 Lewa Mata has more friction in his gears than my 2015 Lewa—which can no longer hold up his axes for posing. I actually learned it's an unavoidable issue with molding. Not that the molding is worn down, but that the molds they're using are ineffective for the mass production they have. I have to be extremely careful with all of my Technic pieces, because every single one of them is like glass. They lose friction after a few uses or just break all together. The 2008 Lime Joints are nothing compared to the 90% of Technic pieces today.

unogazzy84 : type 1 is like regular steel, it just bends. Type 2 is more like hardened steel, it bends just a little with higher loads before it snaps. The two gears are similar but type 2 is a little stronger. For the ultimate test; try using the type 2 in the press. I really love this channel and it serves a purpose more than entertaining people; It shows the limits of Lego pieces which is really good. Keep on doing what you're doing :)

MrPotatoFudge : Apparently they can't handle much. Now we need a paper shredder made of gears. That would be cool

RC4LIFE : You are really talented! Lego KING!

Atte789 : Tee semmone laite jossa on iha sikana noita rattaita vierekkäin et jos vaikka laittaa paperii sen välii nii se menee silpuks.

xX_Ennard_Xx / : The revenge is ours!

ch4meli0n : i think that the only advantage of the type 2 is, that it can be driven in a 90° combination. i hope that makes sense ^^"

FLOWRIDER0 : This really GRINDS my gears

plut o : Whenever you speed rebuilt it i felt like i was playing a lego video game

Benjámin Péter : Basically, torturing the gear, because YOU stepped on HIM. Whatever, great vid!

the face in da wall : How did you survive stepping on a lego??? You could have DIED!!!1!!!!11!!

ATN orange : All of this just because you stepped on it. The gear must be sent to hell.

Poki : When you speed the video (because you are building) it's a perfect ASMR vidéo :O

Jean Kév1 : ton lien discord n'ait plus valide

LIiMANO Liimano : this speed up building sound is statsifiyng

Levi_912 : Oww the sound when he disassembly i love it

Sum Gehnyooiss : the advantage to type 2 that I've seen is that it can't sink into the pin holes.

Petr Stuchlý : Brick abuse! XD But it's for science, so it's ok. :D


Dylan H : oops i stood on a lego brick TIME TO TORTUE IT.

Kyoko : It can Break your feet but it can't handle some spins? *seems legit*

jeromie norton : When you relize this is torture and in the perception point of the lego peice being tortured he is being tortured by devices m2de of the same flesh 🤔

legolamaniac : Got to love those grunts of disapproval. =P Great video!

Big 'ol Booty Cheeks : Honesty, the vocals behind this were spot on!

Haziel Soberal : 1:20 May you pass me the lighter?

Nikey161 : Step on a small gear. Inflict it with small slaps.

Le Medic : Oh noes this pesky gear just hurt my feet *Why not just destroy it with some complex gearbox thingy*

Birdie McChicken : The Brick Experiment Guy is How To Basic?

The Giant Spider : When you step on a gear and have an idea to punish it

NubPlayer33 : intro: **singing and dosent sees the lego** **steps on it by accident** *AIII*
