Watch A Hydraulic Press Crush Dynamite

An explosive combination you'd be hard-pressed to beat

Dynamite is one of those things you feel the need to be extra delicate with, so of course the folks at Hydraulic Press Channel wanted to see what happens if you put it under a press and crank it.

The good news: dynamite is a little more crush-resistant than you might have expected. But don’t worry: the video still delivers on your desperate need to see an explosion.

We really shouldn’t have to remind you never to try this at home, but even if you do have access to both a hydraulic press and dynamite, don’t try this at home. But feel free to watch:
