We bought punch cheap and expensive stools from Ikea so we can test which model is best in terms of price and durability. We use our 5 ton force sensor and 40 ton hydraulic press to do this experiment

How strong is a 1ft pice if railroad track or 2ft or what ever you can get

It depends on the shape and material of the stool too.

I would be kind of cool for a video idea to see if you can make a stool stronger by adding things like diagonal braces and maybe buy two of each stool(or use this videos stools as a control) Thanks!

from scientific point those are almost book examples of force distribution and local/global load cap. Good job!
Tin Day ago
this is not a fair comparison, in the small stoles the force pushes all the surface , but in the bigger ones it goes only in the middle

I think these manufacturers should cut back on the amount of material they use, pointlessly! Imagine how much material they would save by making these stools etc strong enough for say 200kg only!

Cool video, but a proper test would be to periodically hit the legs of the stool with a hammer or mallet using light/light-moderate force while increasing the pressure. Because you can also stand on a soda can if you're careful enough to apply the weight only vertically and not budge. Doesn't prove that a soda can is very sturdy though.

You made one mistake sir... you changed the pressure plate, therefore you changed the force per sqm making your comparison useless.

For those praising the manufacturers for producing stools that can take higher loads than pitched - THEY CAN'T. During the design process and testing, it's lateral forces and torque created by dynamic motions that are the concern, rather than one simple vertical static load.

First of all, thank you very much for preparing this video. Because I know very little English, I will translate my words through Google Translate. So the pronunciation may be inaccurate. The wooden stool on the first attempt was not tested on the same surface as the other stools. So the friction forces were not equal and I think the test was not fair.
