Adam Savage’s One Day Builds: Hellboy’s Samaritan Prop, Part 4!

With Adam’s replica of the Hellboy Samaritan prop mostly completed, Adam turns his attention to replicating the large bullet props that would go in the chamber. It’s a machining exercise that calls upon the use of a custom profile tool to shape the aluminum, and then pair with a brass casing–all made on the lathe. As a finishing touch, Adam sends his pieces to collaborator Victor Broadley, who uses an amazing vintage toolmaker’s mill to etch the proper labeling to match these props in the Hellboy universe!

  1. As for the bullet’s he received with oak and silver in them, Have Adam do some youtube searches on turning expoy resin. It’s a bit labor intensive since it involves setting up the resin to cure in a vacuum chamber to get the air bubbles out. But otherwise it’s similar to how he turned his metal slugs.
