    If we made our own laboratory what else we can do first??? Like what will we perform our first experiment

    What kind of machines would someone need to do blood tests at home? I think a centrifuge, and some sort of spectroscopy machine but I don't know.

    How do hobby chemists manage without fume cupboards? Do you just avoid all volatiles?

    I'm a big fan of your books so it's lovely to see you on a video! Thank you so much for making practical science accessible at home.

    Wait, where did he say that he gets his chemicals from again?

    It's a shame how chemistry has been demonized and access to chemicals has been all but abolished by draconian laws and regulations. It's to the point where someone would even ask why anyone would have a home lab! The first assumption is a drug lab whenever anyone sees glassware. They have made everyone dependent on mega corporations and Chinese labs even for the simplest items. The children are being dumbed down science wise at the same time. Thankfully I do see a few kids making science videos.

    Thanks for sharing your knowledge with us Bob- I was really curious after scanning through the Illustrated Guide to Home Chemistry Experiments what your home lab looks like- pretty impressive.

    I love the structured nature of this series. Thanks. Now to convince my wife this hobby is safe. (She doesn't have a sense of humor.)

    Maker Shed has little or nothing for the Home Chemist.

    Maybe you should work on that.

    What texts do you recommend?

    Recommend "Granddad's Wonderful Book of Chemistry" ?

    I can only answer with my reasoning. Did you ever want to know 'what if'? Some people have no interest in anything except football or baseball, which is not a bad thing at all but rather pointless for me. I have a multitude of interests and hobbies, such as electronics, model railroading, basement chemistry, solar and wind power, leather work, firearms, amateur radio, amateur detective work, and this list goes on. Having a science lab is a constructive hobby, not some dumb sh*t you watch on TV

    Don't worry…as long as you don't have a Mid-Eastern accent 🙂

    Do you know what would be great? A series of videos on "scientific glass-blowing." Colleges and universities used to offer classes in that subject, but apparently, no longer. I guess they figure their graduates will all work for organizations that are well-funded and have no need of such talents. Although I'm sure there are some books out there, the only one I've found that treats the subject, is Strong's "Procedures in Experimental Physics," published in 1938.

    Hello…. And welcome to the wonderful world of chemistry

    i think you should go build a real lab in your backyard instead of turning your kitchen into one.

    you have the resources.

  22. random broadcast Avatar

    reinvent the wheel, educate yourself and friends and have fun.

    its a hobby.
