It goes without saying that if you own a piece of equipment that can blast away material at 60,000 PSI, chances are you’re going to be spending a good deal of time having all sorts of dangerous fun with that kind of water-blasting power, too. Such is the premise behind the Waterjet Channel on YouTube.

“We were told that a waterjet can cut through anything, so we decided to put that to the test,” explains the crew—and there’s really no better way to put it. To date, the creators have blasted everything from rubber band balls to cans of silly string with 60,000 PSI of water terror.

But it’s their latest project that just might prove to be the most useful experiment of all.

Using a custom jack-o’-lantern design, the crew carves a flawless Halloween pumpkin in about 30 seconds:

Who wouldn’t want extra time to watch Halloween movies and eat caramel apples? Are any other makers up for a pumpkin carving challenge?
