Theo, I really can't agree with this statement of yours. " I consider youtube is for entertanment, not education, on the whole."

For instance, when I bought my first lock-mitre bit I spent time on youtube Looking at videos showing how to set up the bit and chose a method that to ME looked easier than all the others. This is but one of so many cases, another one that sticks out was when I couldn't figure out how to remove the rear wiper on my Mazda 6 wagon, I found out in minutes. Again, when Marlene and I are prescribed a new medication I look it up on the net, not just one post but several posts.
I normally do get answers and whilst searching usually have my choice of music playing on youtube. So, in conclusion I would agree with your statement if it read :
entertainment AND education.

Otis, I am very fussy about sequencing projects. Do it in my consulting as well. If you rush past a step, you have to do a lot of work to save the project, work you'd never have to do if you'd sequenced it right. Sometimes lay awake thinking through sequencing and until I get that figured out, I just don't start the project. Good discussion, Harry.

"sequencing", I'm often guilty of NOT sequencing but finding ways to fix the problem has two benefits: It makes me more conscious to put more thought into projects in the future PLUS it's very satisfying finding ways to resolve the problem. Here is what I mean: I hadn't thought HOW I would drill the holes before making the stand.

@harrysin Dang, why'd you post that problem. Couldn't get started on a nap till I figured out a way. Don't know how you solved it, but here's my thought. Measure the diameter of the disk. 36 into 360 degrees means a hole every 10 degrees. So I'd take some stiff board, lay out a circle the diameter of the disk, then draw 4 lines from the center, out past the circle, quartering the circle, that means each quarter gets 9 more lines at 10 degrees. I'd lay the lines out for one quarter, then use tracing paper to transfer the marks to the other 3 quarters. Cut the circle out so the outside diameter has the marks. Tape that to the disk and transfer the marks to the disk.

Next would come building some simple jig that would hold the piece under your drill press. Rotate, drill, rotate, drill til done.

There, now I can stop thinking about it and start that nap.

When I first started on the forum, I always looked forward to your posts. So practical. I learned a lot from you and thoroughly appreciate your wide ranging interests and experience. Every time I use my Triton router, I recall that it was your recommendation that moved me to get it. Not likely to ever get to Perth, and I'd really like to sit down, have a beer and a chat.

Doesn't your post prove the title of this thread. You really are kind to this old man Tom and it's posts like that which keep me going.

I did say "on the whole". But I agree, there is a lot to learn on youtube, IF you look in the right places, and know what to sort out. I'm thinking we are looking up different things in regard to education. For example for awhile there was a self-names "homesteader" who was making "educational" videos. And they were really stupid on the whole. One was teaching how to get an ice mass off his room, on that one he succeeded in blowing a hole in his house with a shotgun, and the ice remained. Another was how to throw a knife, it bounced back and almost stuck him. And the list went on.

I mostly look up entertaining stuff on youtube, seldom educational stuff. For the educational stuff I usually go to sites, so I can read whatever. Or at least start with them. One of the best parts of youtube is it has most of the old cartoons, I've seen a lot I never saw as a kid.

Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.
