Do you have any youtube users you follow?

Post by SteveM » Tue Jul 08, 2014 8:40 pm

I have several youtube pa1ges I go to to get interesting and useful machining tips.

You probably know of Tubal Cain:

and of course, our own trainman Dave:
https://www.youtube.com/user/trainman4602/videos

Here's two others I like:
https://www.youtube.com/user/Halligan142/videos
https://www.youtube.com/user/Figbash3/videos

I like downloading them to my tablet so that I can have something useful to watch when I'm stuck in an airport or just hanging around the shop.

Anyone else have any?

I'm not looking for specific individual videos, but users that post interesting stuff on machining.

Ox's videos are good, but his titles don't tell you anything about the topic, so it's hard to know what you are getting until you are watching it.

Oxtools is a good one but Tom can waft on a bit at times - still doesnts stop me watching his videos - lately he is getting some nice stuff from his viewers hey!

I also subscribe to Tom's Techniques:

And ThatLazyMachninist - he explains things very nicely:
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOfQ4U ... B3h9VieY1Q
Another interesting one that has nothign to do with machining is Taras Kul - half of his videos are just science experiments but he has some great life hacks that even has my wife subscribing to him now - Check out how to cut a dozen small tomatoes on one go, or how to cut a watermelon so it doesnt mess your face....
