I'll let go of my TP when they pry it from my fresh-washed hands!

Couldn't have thought of a more timely topic, and I'll be checking out those unfamiliar channels.

As for Mustie1's Channel, I heartily concur that it is indeed a must. It's truly just like hanging out with your best buddy in his shop as he tackles a wild array of fixes and straightup resurrections....
Based on one of your earlier posts about Mustie1, I started watching his videos.  Seen quite a lot of them so far but he has over 1000 of them so I've got a long way to go before I run out.

Most of his videos are pretty good but he does do some annoying things like frinkling with adjusting something half a dozen times before leaving well enough alone.  I will admit that it is like being there with him.  So much so that I've found myself actually saying, "You dumb shit!  You did that 5 times in a row and the damn thing died 5 times in a row.  Why do you keep on doing the same damned thing and expecting it to be different?"
I don't think I'm alone with my frustration either and I can just imagine what the guy who does Coldwarmotors thinks about Mustie's body and fender work.  (Not.)

Speaking of standing around with the guys, Coldwarmotors is one of my favorite places to watch.
If your a prude, you won't like it but, if you don't mind a few expletives and seeing a few guys standing around watching the work while sipping on a beer and tossing out comments I think you'll will fit right in.
By all means, watch all of the Coldwarmotors rebuilding of the Plymouth Fury.
Where else will you get to see a guy take a rusted out Fury and a Dodge and join them together to form what is turning out to be a almost perfect Plymouth Fury, complete with huge tailfins and a stock Fury engine?
He even fixes all of the little dents in the stainless steel moldings with his body and fender hammers so they look like new.
Also don't miss the "Straight 8" challenge with two teams working against each other to get a old Packard and an old Buick running good enough to make it to the end of the driveway.  Great entertainment.

         Great video. That guy makes me envious. I think I must go take my lawn mower apart now just because I can. I've already taken the Enfield apart and put it back together again and I ain't doin' THAT again  :)

I love the guy's "poor man's milling machine". I can just imagine me trying this and having some irreplaceable component ripped out of my hands and flung across the garage to wreck something else...

At first I thought he was going to make a TIG welder out of two old microwave machines.  Very impressive skills with the welder, I'm sure I would have blown a hole through case on the first pass.

I'm enjoying watching Alan Millyard build a six-cylinder Kawasaki from a four cylinder Z1 while locked down. He narrates his work in a cheerful patter and modestly performs magical feats. I especially like how he uses hammers and hacksaws to assemble cranks and cylinder blocks. He's worth a looksee. He's also built some of the most amazing bikes ever in his little shed.

Ah yes, this popped up in my suggestions but not yet watched.

It may be lockdown and I guess I'm still lucky enough to be WFH but I'm not finding anymore time than normal to binge watch content.

I've been watching Key and Peele, and find them hilarious.  These guys are comedic genius, perfect for U-tube.

Some of you might be offended by the language in some of their skits, but not in this particular video:

Just goes to show that we all have different tastes, I didn't find that even mildly amusing, no doubt you would feel that way about something I thought funny.

Stanley, I find Millyard's creativity and his skill with hand tools amazingly good. Back in the day, everything must have been made by hand, including very complex clockworks and locks.  If you like the Millyard projects,  check out Clickspring.

The series where he builds a working replica of the Antikythera mechanism is addictive. He builds the whole device from scratch, and also a lot of the tools he uses to build it.

Clickspring is amazing. As a former clock collector, his artistry makes my minor repairs look pathetic.
These videos showcase manuals skills in a way that CNC and 3D printing lacks.
