When the Slingshot Guy is Inspired by the Hydraulic Press Guy

We love the destruction video channels: hydraulic presses, waterjets, and slingshots. Now, Joerg Sprave, the guy behind the Slingshot Channels has come up with his own version of a press.

The Hydraulic Press channel sent him some gifts, which prompted Sprave to go and create his own ‘The Rubberaulic Press’, powered with a 7.5 kilogram steel slugs and rubber straps.


I turns out, you don’t need a hydraulic press to smash things: he runs through a bunch of objects, such as a coin, a watch, iPhone, a wedding ring, and even a clay figure:

It doesn’t quite flatten things like the hydraulic press does, but you certainly don’t want to get your hand under that.

It’s a shame that the pair aren’t on camera together. That would be like the world’s most destructive team up movie.
