I find the videos made by Joe Pieczynski well worth watching. Lots of information about using the Mill and Lathe. Well worth subscribing.

This Joe is new to me, thanks for the heads up. Another Joe I follow on YouTube is Cuppa Joe as he has made numerous modifications to a a round pillar mill/drill machine similar to the Warco Minor I own.

This old Tony , marc lecuyer ( that lazy machinist ), clickspring and i could go on and on and on !

one tip is to look on the channel you are viewing and check to see who they are subscribed to if they are allowing you to check - thats how i found most of the channels i watch.. One guy i have been waiting for to come back to making videos is mr crispin .

Don’t forget our very own youtube mega stars Stubb mandrel , Mrjasonsb and home metalworking workshop (Harold Hall).

For me, as a noob, I'm following "This Old Tony", Abom79, Blonidhacks, Learning Turning Metal (Our own Andrew Whale), Ade's Workshop, Keith Appleton... loads of great content.

I'm not sure any are teaching bad habits, I think it's a chance to look at all the ways it "can" be done, and then choosing a way that I'd like to follow. I think some things just don't make sense until you have your own tooling... take milling for example, Blondihacks has a great video on setting up the mill, and the tramming thing I kind of got, but last night I saw first hand why it's important on a piece of metal I was machining

Lots of great content.

Joe Pie is indeed an excellent channel to watch. I also enjoy anything by Tom Lipton (Oxtools) and a young English man called Mr. Crispin.

I think you have all named everyone I watch.

Watching their videos does however fill me with a sense of ability that I quite clearly don't have yet but practice makes perfect.

Look for his videos about the 'Wrong Foo' mill

Others of interest:

Geoffrey Croker, Mustie1, Abom79, BigClivedotcom, Rolingmetal, Mark Presling, MrPete222, Randy Richard, Nick C Colyer, Steve Summers, Vortecks (builds insane electric bikes!), myfordboy, outsidescrewball, ROBRENZ, James Kilroy, Winky's Workshop, Halligan142, The Backyard Machine Shop, Old Iron Lover, Everett's Workshop, BasementShopGuy, etc.

No wonder I get nothing done!

Than you for that, I've just watched the @wrong Foo' mill and I have exactly the same mill, with some tiny differences, very interesting.

Mr Crispin is awesome. His new workshop looks like it's going to be incredible. I believe he's also a machinist at Rolls Royce aero engines.

Don't think anyone has mentioned one of my favourites, "old steam powered machine shop" Amazing, and very practical!

I’d like to add another member here who has an excellent youtube channel. His name is Craig and he’s making a loco as we speak. His youtube channel is no23mk2

Not sure if this channel has been mentioned on here before ( a search showed nothing ) but it has kept me amused for a few hours anyway!

Mostly old machine shop training videos.

There is one video on making a gear blank with a tapered bore- i don't know what the cutting fluid this guy was using ( looked like tar and probably toxic ) but i want some to play with !

As this thread has been resurrected (ie it has become ‘current&rsquo, I think the mods need to delete some of the youtube advertisers (of cheap rubbish from china) who promote items which now should come within the terms of the CoC.

I can see one name mentioned, who is ‘sponsored’ by one particular supplier of cheap rubbish (reject items as well as likely surplus goods).

I didn't resurrect this thread for this whingeing crap ! I didn't want to start another youtube video thread either - i just thought this channel may provide some entertainment or education for those who wish to watch it .

What happened last year or the years before i don't care about as this is out of my control and i was really hoping for a more positive reaction from my post .

And just for the record i now double check that any links to youtube or any website that i provide do not or have not done any reviews that would be in contradiction to the COD on this forum .
