How Adam Savage Stores His Vintage Aerospace Sunglasses

Publicerades den 12 apr 2021
Last year, Adam showed us his repair of his vintage Ray-Ban aviator sunglasses--the same kind that were worn by early NASA astronauts and aerospace pilots. To store those glasses along with his replicas, Adam has received a lovely NASA-inspired sunglasses case from our friends at Luna Replicas (!

  • Luna Replicas: Adam's vintage aviator repair:

    • You are the one person that could prove perpetual motion to be true or false. What your take on the subject?

    • Fellow me guys

    • I have worn a Luna Replicas green Velcro strap on my Speedy Pro for the last year and a half. They are a fantastic value at $25.

    • I made this comment in the comments but to make sure you see this since you are going to use this in your car use some NASA velcro to attach it to your sun visors or wherever it needs to be and let us see that

    • Link in the description has a minor error :)

  • I'm pretty sure you put these in that case back to front and upside down.

  • I would rather you do a video like this about an item that you are passionate about, versus hear about raycon‘s or league of legends or whatever that stupid mobile game is. yes I know that’s not a sponsored video but you get the idea

  • It's a crummy commercial :\

  • Drop a Pepcid AC, bruh

  • Jim Henson approves of the hair!

  • STICKERS!!!!

  • What happened to the raptor vids?

  • I am 14 now and remember watching your show with my dad. He died of cancer almost a year ago and a lot of memories were made watching your show. Your just like my dad. You talk like him, think like him, and build like him. Your awesome. You mean the world to me. I want to say thank you for everything you have done for me. You inspired me to dream, build, imagine, and so much more. Adam. Thank you.

  • Fellow me guys

  • How about doing a Golden gun of 007 fame that can be dismantled into it’s separate parts. That’s be cool.

  • Adam how scary was it dipping your bare fingers into molten lead?

  • Adam should build a real hoverboard from Back to the Future 2.

  • "Stickers?!"

  • Watched this video and went and ordered the pencil case .

  • We'd love to hear your opinions on our music 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

  • I love Randolph engineering glasses. Check them out.

  • If Adam doesn't upload for 3 years it's because an earthquake hit his workshop.

  • Adam you can keep your money and you can keep your brain I just want all of your gadgets just put me in your will Adam

  • Love this cool, own a part of science items. Just wish I could get some of the moon

  • Adam ..your glasses are

  • Does not take much to make Adam a happy camper!

  • Thank you Adam! These are going to make a great Father's Day gift. Nearly every thing that comes in the house now my wife asks, "Who do I blame, Adam or Leo." You get the blame for shop stuff and Leo Laporte gets the blame for tech stuff.

  • Adam you put the “crooked” glasses in backwards

  • Instructions unclear Head seems to be crooked

  • "Ooohh.....STICKERS!!" This man is a treasure.

  • Looked up Lunar Replicas and now have to save some money for their sunglasses. Just what I want is sunglasses and the price is fair.

  • Good spirits injection moulded into the heart of anyone happy enough to watch. ❤

  • Max is such a good guy as well - he helped sort out some international shipping issues (on my end, not his) during the height of covid and was a pleasure to deal with.

  • I just watched a seven minute advertisement.

  • 4:20 put the sunglasses into the plastic shelf... the wrong way ... the larger plastic side protects the glasses ! Also always close the left temple first, followed by the right temple ontop !

  • A NASA enthusiast should wear an Accutron Astronaut GMT pilot wristwatch or an Omega Speedmaster chronograph ...

  • Am I the only one who is bugged by Adam stuffing the glasses the wrong way around in the pouch? Normaly you would put the glas on the curved side of the pouch and the -straight- legs on the flat side of the insert. The glasses would than go deeper in the insert, making closing the pouch easyer.

  • 1:12 “don’t need that much light on me”. Well thats a first, normally Adam thinks he is under illuminated

  • I love that the A7L space suit had a sunglasses pouch on the shoulder even in EVA configuration.

  • No one should apologize for making cool stuff that most of us can’t replicate and enjoy making a living doing so

  • Watching your videos every day is like watching it live. No cuts or edits to remove things like you adjusting the camera. Just awesome, like being right there with you. That and your awesome being like a kid learning stuff and just chatting to us is great

  • Fix the Crookedness! Lol

  • idk why I like it when people date the day of filming for some reason I like keeping up with my favorite creator's schedule

  • That is an example of the reaction you hope for when you buy your kids a present that you hope they will like or at best not ask "what is it?"

  • love how your a youtube now it brings back my childhood mythbusters nostalgia

  • I got my pair of AO glasses new for $48 from the manufacturer. I even said to myself at the time "I should buy another pair of these because these are amazing glasses." I really screwed the pooch on that one.

  • "Similar to my spacesuit" Not many people can say

  • Be honest what are the types of sunglasses you would really want to wear .regardless of what people would think. Because my answer is something like ski googles a little modification.

  • That replica container looks a lot like what my BCG came in...

  • Jesus Christ wear gloves when not operating machinery... I’ve work in a shop for 15 years I take care of my hands as much as possible

  • Coming from someone who is a professional in the optical industry that case insert is an awful idea. No matter which way the sunglasses face the lenses are going to rub against the insert (subsequently scratching the lenses). I know AO (American Optical) and Randolph used glass lenses as their standard for a long time, but the hard insert is a negligent oversight. Love the frames though, albeit way outta wack.

  • Only Adam gets so excited about STICKERS, lol.

  • Beaker hair!!!

  • They dont sit straight, it's driving me nuts haha

  • Your insert looks like the one in my holder that holds my Marine Corps issued prescription lenses gas mask inserts. Except mine are black which I still have after 47 years.

  • I was checking the virtual cave tour.. and i came across the address... you guys should delete or edit it.... just saying.

  • I have to ask how do you store your files? I have metal files and wood files, and hate trying to keep them in order ! Please show how you store yours.

  • Adam is a fucking loon....howard hughes material

  • If you pause the video at 0:16 your see Adam bold and love it

  • Adam please cut & clean your finger nails for close ups.

  • you have a lot of hammers. thanks.

  • Am I the only one noticing that Adam is slowly turning into Doctor Emmett Brown?..

  • Adam, your thumbnail picture makes me think you could play Stan Lee in a few years.

  • Always love watching your giddiness, whilst opening packages and speaking about things you love. Thank You, Mr. Savage.

  • This must've been right after Perseverance landed. Truly amazing to watch. A very fitting show and tell.

  • You should do a series of videos that caters to gamers. Tabletop and RPG gamers. Maybe a gaming table, some dice storage, miniatures whether figures, buildings or scenarios, dice towers, or whatever else tickles your fancy. I know you've hinted at you like DnD and those style of games. I would love to see your spin on some gaming accessories.

  • please make Mando's cosutme

  • Cool

  • Yo they’re tilted

  • You gotta straighten them out Adam!

  • God those are some worked hands

  • You should do a One-Day Build of a brain-wave analyzer replica so you have something to go along with your crazy hair. Embrace your inner Doc Brown! 😂

  • So crooked :p

  • Adam, your glasses are wonky or your ears are.

  • My GOD I love your hair, Adam! Who cuts it? Do you use any product? What's your morning hair routine look like? Totally serious! Inquiring minds want to knw!

  • Looking like Doc Brown with that hair today.

  • I'm shocked at how reasonably priced those sunglasses case replicas are. Obviously, more expensive than the mass produced normal cases at Walmart, but not by anywhere near as much as I'd expect for a replica. The lunar plaques, though, caught my attention and may be what gets my money.

  • “I know this sounds like an add, because it is” XD

  • Those glasses are crooked lol jus FYI lol

  • Fess up, who else read penis pouch?

  • Haircut man

  • has "For all Mankind" and all its props and the topic of its needs for top notch NASA prop must ve come across Adam´s Radar?

  • Those look almost identical to the flight deck sunglasses I was issued in the US Navy back in the early 1990s... gov't issued sunglasses are all fairly similar I guess? I had no idea there was a potential market for them and donated them (along with a pile of other old glasses that had out-of-date prescriptions for me, including my bootcamp-issued "BC" glasses lol) to my local Lions club a few years ago. I never had the nifty little canvas pouch though, just some sort of hard-shell case I think... and mine always sat on my face crooked too!

  • Sometimes it looks like Adam combs his hair with a balloon. Lol

  • I should get the Apollo brass flashlight from them.

  • 3:20 - „Oh my goodness, AHHH OOOOOHHHH STIICKCKKERRSS???!”

  • Love Adam's joy at some basic pieces of kit. Don't need expensive items. Just a simple sunglass pouch to brighten his day.

  • I haven't started watching, but my official guess is, "in a partial vacuum."

  • your hair is always crazy dude

  • crooked

  • they need bent back they are really cooked

  • 5:11 "It is made in a coated nylon, similar to my space suit" what an incredible life you're living when THAT is something you can say

  • Those Aviators sit on Adam’s face the same way all sunglasses sit on my face - crooked. Maybe he has one ear 1/4” lower than the other like I do? I have to tweak the arms on all my shades so the bridge sit square on my face.

  • Crazy hair, crooked glasses. It’s not just your brain that entertains the masses.

  • I got the Luna replica type 3 flight jacket last month, I put a really nice DM2 (AB-emblems) mission patch on the shoulder. It is a gorgeous jacket, only downside is the sizing. I am Dutch and pretty tall even for our standards (6.5” in freedom units), I got the large one which make me look a little ‘fat’ when I zip it up, and the sleeves tend to crawl up when I wear a backpack. The jacket is completely wind and water tight btw, so when cycling you will get extremely sweaty when wearing a backpack. It has gotten to a point where I got saddlebacks to put the backpack in (the doodle dog already gets the crate in front). Anyway, amazing stuff from Luna replicas, they came onto my radar because of you Adam, I believe you wore their jacket with a Apollo 8 patch on a nasa spacesuit video but I am not 100% sure. Thanks!

  • Buzz Aldrins original space flown sunglasses sold for $2,300 (with pouch) in 1995. Probably worth way more now.

  • A bit longer hair and you'll be doing a pretty decent "doc Brown"

  • Wonder if he knows they sit on his face wonky

  • Subtítulos en español? Por favor!!n

  • american optics makes amazing glasses, still in a small shop in central massachusetts. I own 4 pair.

  • Adam slowly working on that mad scientist look

  • Haha I had crazy hair as well today but the barbers reopened today in the UK so my hair isn't crazy no more! Whoop whoop!

  • You have to be a whole lot less coherent to do a Joe Biden impression
