    Favorite YouTubers

    So, I don't watch telly much any more but I do get through an aweful lot of YouTube content. There are just sooo many great YouTubers out there, I thought I start sharing some here.

    I'll get the ball rolling with probably my 2 favourite machining channels - This Old Tony. Probably one of the funniest guys out there and great content, and Clickspring - an Aussie genius Chris whos attention to detail is astounding.

    Here's one from This Old Tony to get you started.


    And one from Clickspring that shows the clock he made. This is a compilation he put together from 24 other videos of its construction - if you like this, check out the whole series. He's currently making an Antikythera mechinism - that amazing too.


    1977 101 FC - 'Chucky'
    1986 Classic RR - 'Thing'
    1976 Series III Tray
    1997 Honda CBR1000F
    2003 L322 - Gone to a new home.

    There are a heap of Drone channels - one of my favourites here is Ken Heron - he won't be everyones cup of tea but I've leant a lot from his videos. Remember that the FAA rules in the US are a bit different ours, but similar in many respects, but don't copy what he does and claim it was ok because you saw it on YouTube.

    Geoff Croker is a kiwi who does things in a similar vein to ToT. Check you might like him.

    Learn quick is one I found recently, where a guy learns a skill and times himself in each episode. Some are pretty interesting.

    Project Binky is up there, but is only updated twice a year now I think...

    Wow, that's bloody good flying. Looked at the how to vid - it was reversed in post production but still amazing flying!

    This guy does actual backwards flying and after watching a how to on it, I've been practicing it myself (but not with any obstacles yet, just the theory... 😇

    Just looked at one at random - yep, do like him, so I'll be spending some time sifting through his stuff. 👍

    Will check the others out later. Just what I was hoping for, others letting me know what is good. 😊

    I would think that there is a lot of people who are into you tube. I also do not watch a heck of a lot of television. I`m not really into machining vids though as I do it for a living, though I do admire the work others do. I have recently found that I am interested in steam locomotives and have been watching those and old comedy's like Black Adder, Dave Allen etc.

    Great channels Gav. Thanks for sharing.
    I like Auto Expert. He isn't really talking to you and me but I find him entertaining and informative.
    Cheers, Billy.

    My favourite is Simone Giertz. She makes crappy robots that do pointless things badly. For example, the breakfast machine...



    and the soup robot...

    Damn,, I do a lot of watching of old car and trucks etc doing like “first time starts in 20 years” etc. one thing leads to another, end up with 20 odd screens on the laptop 💻 😳
    Or someone here will put up a car advert and one ends up looking at old cars that are for sale all night 😂
