Adam Savage’s One Day Builds: Tintype Photo Clamp for Gary Oldman!

Adam helps out actor Gary Oldman with one of his hobbies in this week’s build! Gary is an avid photographer, and practices the craft of wet plate photography. For that tintype process, he needed a way to mount his large glass photo plates to clean and prep. Adam builds and sends Gary a custom clamp for that purpose and we get to see the unboxing!

  1. Watching this reminded me I was told once that welding “yellow” bots and nuts (zinc coated) produces really bad fumes. Even compared to normal welding fumes which are bad enough. Can someone confirm and let Adam know to mask up or get an extractor when he welds as I’d prefer him to be around for a lot longer!

    Thanks from an Irish maker.

  2. Joking aside, Oldman is known for being very private about his personal life. They’re probably just pictures of family or friends or something.
