I'm loving these 'my favorite tools' videos from the all-new ADAM SAVAGE's TESTED.

More about the show:
Host of Discovery Channel's long-running series MythBusters, Adam Savage has spent his life making things. From a cardboard suit of Excalibur armor when he was 13 to a REAL suit of Excalibur armor (with Terry English) when he was 50, Adam has built just about everything you can think of, including (but not limited to): Star Wars spaceships, Totoro costumes, NERF mods and movie prop replicas. In fact, over his career as an industrial and special effects designer/fabricator, actor, educator and television personality, there isn’t much Adam Savage has not done. Subscribe to Tested to see what Adam and his team will tackle next!
