Nice submissions guys!

Check out the ScienceMadness Wiki:

Lab tips: Making sodium wire for drying solvents.

I couldn't get the link to post so this is simply the name of the video on you tube.

I have a similar clay extruder but easier to use as it has a screw thread for extrusion
So far I've only used it twice for sodium wire.
If you buy such a device (I have not really benefitted from it) then use the second-smallest hole
- or use the small hole if your lab is warm enough to make the sodium soft enough.

P.S. I've put sodium on water many times, even tried the 'transparent sodium' experiments a few times,
but when I put sodium wire on water it has so far never exploded....... must try harder !

Ok, I may have found a JACKPOT channel. "ChemicalForce".
An English-speaking Russian (at least, I think) chemistry channel which does many well-filmed experiments with REALLY exotic chemicals such as TiCl4, Na2O2, Decaborane, 100% HNO3, LiAlH4, and more. He's even done stuff with Liquid Acetylene & Methane! Seriously a great channel and has brought stuff to the table which hasn't been seen before! Take Decaborane + WFNA for example... BOOM!!
