Putting an expensive, malleable metal under a hydraulic press? The Crushit Channel took on the challenge using $40,000 worth of pure gold.

The Crushit Channel decided to take 1 kg 24 karat gold block and put it under a hydraulic press. Gold, one of the most malleable metals in the world, gives under the pressure. Basically, the metal becomes Play-Doh under the hydraulic press. The press transforms it into very expensive, very shiny metal molding clay. Could this be the most expensive hydraulic press crush to date?
