  • 48:21 Love that one too, hahhaha...

  • I want a Bolero hat but idk if I could pull one off! 🧐

  • HE grenades are specifically "offensive" grenades since you can throw them while advancing on a position, and the pressure wave won't hurt you at all. Fragmentation grenades are classed by the US military as "defensive" grenades, since their shrapnel will travel FAR further at lethal velocities than you can throw it. When it training, you basically stand behind a waist high berm, chuck it, and go prone or duck right away

  • hi Adam can you build a real robocop armored suit from the movie set from 1987

  • It's you, it's you! It sets off your wig! (Credits to Stan Freberg.)

  • I thought about Indiana Jones ish needed a bow tie

  • A pressure cooker works well too. A couple inches of water, bring to pressure, remove the weight and have at it. All the steam you could want, though not particularly safe.

  • When I'm down in the dumps, I like to buy a new hat. "Oh, so that's where you get them!"

  • I love the bag idea.

  • I love the idea, but there are certainly a few improvements I can think of straight away - as you mentioned it's strange that we're limited to four ports. It looks like the modules could fit two USB-A ports, but it's cool that they aren't terribly expensive. As I saw the beginning of the video it felt all too familiar, and I was afraid the modules would be too expensive, and eventually the company would fold and you'd be stuck with what you got. It looks like they're hitting the right price point if they can market it right.

  • Sooooooo, hopping for an encounter of the thitd kind from someone ringing at your door?

  • The rifle looks great, but the shoulder stock looks brand new. The stock is pretty beat up on heavily-used weapons.

  • Just push the crown out and go buckeroo. I have earned all of those merit badges and then some!

  • A few years ago I made my own stretcher with the blocks shaped exactly to my own head. I found that you have to leave the tension on over night to get a lasting change in size.

  • Awesome! I can't wait until they work on different sizes, then I'll definitely be buying.

  • Looks great on you.

  • Jiffy Steamer - there were two in the men's clothing store I worked at in the 1970s.

  • This got a bit emotional tbh, as an apple user I do love my laptop, but as many people are saying here, this is how it’s supposed to be. I’ve been getting more into pc building and seeing this I do hope this projects evolves into bigger things!

  • Hat looks good to me.

  • sorry, but I understand that the strut was John Wayne's grandson, not Pedro Pascal.

  • Looks great!

  • It's a clever way to stretch it, hats off to you.

  • I bought this stuff on Adam's recommendation to do some old monkey wrenches and it worked great. It did however seem to leech through the plastic container I put it in so I'm a bit concerned about that.

  • Hey Adam if you are interested in something even better to remove rust that is totally safe to use, please reach out as it would be awesome to see you put it to a try on your channel and open a lot of people's eyes.

  • I can see how this type of interface might become the industry standard for surround sound mixing. very cool

  • Imagine if he was your science teacher......

  • 9:15 "Why? Why would you make this one ... bigger than this one?" So you can undo them with only one set of wrenches, rather than having to buy two, to get duplicates. Many people with limited tools, space and/or money only have one set of wrenches.

  • Looks dabber af.

  • If you like hats, you should buy an Aussie icon. The Akubra. Also why are U steaming? No need, just use the sweat of your brow and time stretch it. Less harmful to the material I believe

  • That crown is so tall... it needs a hat band or something to break up the vertical motonony, IMO. The internal band is actually somewhat visible as a ripple from the outside.

  • I already bought the whole set separately of the de-merit badges and they went right on my apron that I also bought. Can’t wait to see where you put your badges though.


  • Darn I was number 667

  • *literally wear an old(ish)knockabout cowboy variant hat that i found on the side of the road years ago...actually pulled my car over and rescued's battered a worn and absolutely prefect for my personality...added a clip on lizard to the side of it to patch a hole that was there...wear it everyday while out in public...matches by magnificent mentat eyebrows and wildly bushy sideburns*

    • "Mentat eyebrows", that's great :D

  • *I really hope this will be a market disrupting product.* Getting back the ability to swap RAM, and batteries, is huge for the longevity of any laptop. It will save money for customers, especially casual users. And will benefit the environment as well. And it opens a previously closed door for enthusiasts. Having Dongles being an integrated part of the machine, is huge. Can't believe I haven't seen anyone do this, or even thought of it my self. Especially since we now have a "somewhat" universal port, in USB-C. captive screw fasteners, QR codes, and assembly with single plain easy access. Well I'll be damned. They really want to make it easy for us. I guess the video captured all of my arguments. But just wanted to put it out there anyway. If I had to say one nit picky negative thing. It would be that the screwdriver, while neat. It adds unnecessary cost and waste.

  • 28:00 Sword hilt just casually hanging out on the workbench like it's a normal everyday thing.

  • Adam, I don't know how often or if you read the comments here, but I just want to say thank you. My son (adopted in February) and I watched this video yesterday after a difficult day of remote learning. I saw the title and thought it might be helpful for him as he struggles with failures, staying organized and owning mistakes. When you were talking about your dust up with your son and told him to listen and repeat your mantra of "My bad, I'm sorry, I screwed up" I think that might have stuck with my son. He wrote it down and thought about it a bit. Here's hoping your words inspired him...thanks again!

  • Man I wish I could rock a hat.

  • I was sold on the concept when I saw the modules.... I fell in love when I saw how easy it is to disconnect the keyboard ribbon cable. Nicely done Framework! Please sell this laptop in Canada.

  • I literally bought a garment steamer like 20 mins ago, crazy

  • Adam's excitement when he unboxes the parts after four months' wait is palpable. There's a reason that people love this man so much. His joy is infectious. Also, at 6:38 where the piece works its way out of the collet while he tightens it: so relatable.

  • The Open Road style always has a bound edge brim and 4 ligne ribbon. Resistol's version was the San Antonio.

  • Watching Adam trying to put the steamer back together, talking to my screen, "Just turn them off and wait for it to cool down!" Adam: "It's difficult being this impatient." Me: "Okay, valid point."

  • This all reminds me of Marc Maron's amazing hat bit from his Too Real special.

    • It's definitely what would happen to me if I ever bought something other than a baseball cap.

  • The crease on the bottom of the left/rear brim was just....cringy! I hope it's not as bad in person as it seems on camera.

  • Saw the title and was like 😒 but then he set it up and I was like😏

  • Adam, you are right about the propellor being a wing, but its not a fan pushing the plane. Is it not the air pressure change from the shape of the propellor that causes the pull?

  • A band of some sort might deemphasize the crown height, but it looked fine on my screen.

  • Where is the ethernet hotswap port?

  • Lol way to funny

  • 34:30 all i see is urkel

  • can some one please make a audio remix of Adam Savave taping/drummingthatsick beat on his head? LOL

  • A one day build actually completed in one day?! Blasphemy! He must have left something out.

  • Literally only watching this because the length is 13:37 :)

  • You need a big gold sheriff star on that bad boy

  • I think it works for you

  • Adam, the hat looks awesome! ;)

  • Ingenious indeed.

  • why do i get so exited about a man talking about tools he likes?

  • What is the tool you used to cut the straps so clean and efficiently!?

  • This reminds me of old school hiking boots. I've seen people putting them in rice cookers to steam them, and then hammering out the toe box on a stretching bar to get them to fit better.

  • I've always been a wannabe hat guy, but I just can't pull it off. I look like a total dork in a hat.

  • Buy a hat in a hat store.... Who would have thought....LOL

  • One of the employees at JJ Hat Center has a small SElists channel where he talks about hat styles and hat maintenance. He’s very passionate about what he does as well.

  • Just get one of those dumpling steamer and throw the hat in there.

  • I would have thought the stretcher should stay in until the hat dries??

  • Imagine having a plasma gun on the back of that thing, and it's got its own AI.

  • Seems like in a budget pinch you could accomplish this with a steam clothes iron

  • "... a head stretcher..." WHHAAAT??? Oh a _HAT_ stretcher... :D

  • I'm not sure if it's still there but there used to be a hat shop on South Street in Philadelphia called Hats in the Belfry.

  • Looks darned spiffy from over here.

  • I have n entirely handheld steamer that I got at Walmart for $15. It works great but the water is so close to the nozzle it occasionally spits a little out onto the fabric. So if you don't mind a few drops on your material it's totally worth the money.

  • You look like Pharrell Savage with that hat.

  • Not quite as good as the sweeping scene from Twin Peaks: The Return (AKA Season 3), but respectable effort.

  • Anyone else find themselves correcting Adam every time he mispronounces 'ermine'? It rhymes with 'vermin'. No? Just me? Oh well.

  • AMD is the future

  • hopefully you are still reviewing these... I have this monitor, love it, but want to use the multi-input feature that also enables the use of a single mouse and keyboard across the devices and am not finding the instructions for this configuration. my understanding is that you can set up multiple devices (i.e two laptops), display them together (i.e PBP HDMI 1 and HDMI 2 in a side by side configuration) and be able to navigate a single mouse over both as well as single keyboard input. but you must tell the mouse/keyboard which display receives the input. (i.e hover mouse over display 1, L or R click and use keyboard for data input or mouse click over web pages) Are you familiar with this capability?
