This guy crushed dynamite with a hydraulic press, and you’ll absolutely believe what happened next

Hydraulic Press Dynamite

Unlikely internet celebrity Lauri Vuohensilta is the Finnish genius behind Hydraulic Press Channel, a YouTube channel that does…well, you can probably guess.

Vuohensilta made his name crushing such mundane items as red-hot nickel balls and rubber ducks, but he’s finding ways to keep things interesting months later. Yes, those ways do involve dynamite.

This video is exactly what it says on the tin: Vuohensilta gets a cheap hydraulic press he won’t mind destroying, a few sticks of dynamite, and sets the cameras rolling. There is some tiny amount of science being done, among the destruction: dynamite is a stable explosive that generally needs a detonator to set it off, so will simply crushing it set it off?

Well, spoiler alert: no it won’t. The crushers tried twice, and in both cases, the dynamite simply got flattened rather than exploded. But there is a big boom in the end, as det cord is used to make the flattened dynamite safe.

Of course, there’s a problem with this “test”: the dynamite only had to face a puny, disposable hydraulic press. The much heavier, stronger hydraulic press that is used for most of the videos is what we really need to see.
