How to Build a Holy Grail Blank (video)

This series of videos by Brian Harner shows how to build a blank of a holy grail, which can cut stone when powered by sound and cast in bell metal bronze.

Each of the five videos has the following description:

"Hello, humanity. My name is Brian Harner. A very small number of people have come to understand this information on a more complete level, but for the majority of you watching this video, this is my first appearance to you. The Holy Grail is a symbol of knowledge. It gives everlasting life when used properly, indeed, but the magical qualities pop culture has inundated your perception with, will not be present. The goal is to remove selfishness. Then, and ONLY then, will you be able to understand what everlasting life truly entails. Besides the stipulations that accompany this precipice of knowledge, which are a requirement for proper usage, the physical object can be utilized for construction effective immediately. Not only do I recommend the constant and continued usage of this object, its usage is a requirement for humanity's survival.

Resonance is the mysterious missing piece to the equation. While higher education principles teach students to remove resonance properties from an engineering project, The Holy Grail is built entirely of this phenomenon's parameters. The Holy Grail was discovered by me using a simplistic approach to engineering fundamentals, in a realm of study known as biomimicry. Biomimicry utilizes a notion that discoveries and inventions of man, come from examples already present in the environment to which we are accustomed. The Earth, and all of its inhabitants, give every answer we need to progress technologically.

The Holy Grail is the resonant structure of the human male tonal frequency put into physical form. This video explains the process of building a foam structure (that I refer to as a blank), to use when casting a lost foam sand casting foundry pour. The build of this blank is somewhat tricky due to the tight tolerances and thin wall structure. The foam material is also not forgiving. This is not the traditional/conventional method of casting these objects. It is simply the least expensive, AND most efficient method within those parameters. The goal is to make this tool accessible to the broadest audience possible, while minimizing your waste during your build attempts.

This is the most efficient method, while purchasing materials and tools that are found in most general hardware stores, dollars stores, and Walmart. Just about every society on Earth right now should be able to build one of these Holy Grails with everyday materials. For those of you that are short on tools, shop space, or have a difficult time assembling an expensive ensemble of materials, this is the method for you. Again, this is an instructional video to aid in building the foam blank for a sand cast, lost foam casting method piece to build The Holy Grail."

The following is the link to each video. Below each link is a set of timestamps for that particular video. -- Video #1/5

Time Sequence:

00:00 - Marking the wooden base for the blank then cutting rough shapes
00:16 - Sanding plate surfaces for better expanding/yellow foam adhesion
      - Gluing wooden chuck board to first plate (bad camera work... apologies)
      - Foam gluing first two plates with expanding/yellow foam
01:32 - Machining rough cut outer surface and preparing third plate
03:52 - Rough cutting third plate of blank
05:02 - Sanding internal surface, preparing for wax
05:30 - preparing wax and bunson burner station
05:58 - waxing inner surface to fill voids in the expanding/yellow foam (these surfaces were thicker which meant more wax than the subsequent plates then smoothing surface
08:32 - gage used to check proper circumference, then more refining
09:13 - Machining next plate to coincide with the previous machined plate
10:21 - sharpening tools
10:32 - Machining next plate
11:38 - Machining 6th plate where the outer angle begins to shift downward #2/5

Time Sequence:

00:00 - Machining 6th plate where the outer angle begins to shift downward
02:15 - Machining seventh plate and setting angle
03:34 - Machining Eighth plate after glue cures then waxing to set surface
04:42 - Gaging internal and external angles for efficiency
05:10 - Machining ninth plate then blending and waxing
08:49 - After machining tenth plate, gaging and refinement #3/5

Time Sequence:

00:00 - Beginning refinement of outer wall
00:44 - Setting outer wall angle to match internal then continuing refinement of outer wall
02:48 - Checking light signature through the internal wall for a depth gage then continued machining
03:19 - After checking angle and depth, continued machining outer wall to match inner wall
03:41 - Refinement of the outer bowl shape at the largest circumference of the blank
07:01 - Removing chatter markes and refining expanding/yellow foam ridges until angle is flush throughout and bulb structure is set
09:45 - More refinement using yard stick and checking depth with flashlight
10:57 - Waxing of the main outer wall begins
12:08 - Filling holes directly with wax while checking angle alignment #4/5

Time Sequence:

00:00 - Machining the lower bulb structure to be removed for flute marriage
02:38 - Waxing the lower bulb outer wall
03:46 - Grabbed hacksaw to remove bulb structure from the wood sanded it flat
04:10 - Marked out and sawed the flute plates, then sanded them for better foam glue adhesion
05:19 - Refined the first attempt at the tailstock insert
05:44 - Made the plywood base for the flute plate structure
06:25 - Glued tail insert then machined the outer diameter (rough) of the flute structure
07:54 - Sanding and refinement of the flute structure
08:29 - Cut the flute structure from base
08:38 - Changed chuck jaws to fit the larger internal base then waxed the flute structure
08:46 - Preparing the marriage between the flute and the bulb
10:11 - Foam gluing flute and bulb structures together then fitting them to secure while drying in the lathe #5/5

Time Sequence:

00:00 - Decided a reverse approach was better suited, then machined a new tailstock insert to fit the bulb opening
00:22 - Chucked up married structures for final refinement using newly machined tailstock insert while checking alignment
01:05 - Refinement of the transition takes place and a removal of excess material coincides
11:00 - Waxing the remainder of the structures after they've been refined and married The Arian Technologies YouTube Channel.
