Now that was interesting, and informative. Couldn't understand a word he was saying, but at least he was explaining what he was doing, and possibly why. A relief from the utube idiots who title their videos "how to make", then don't say a word, and you can't tell what they are doing. Saw one like that yesterday, never could figure out what he was supposed to be doing. But this guy's video clearly showed what he was doing, and how to do it.

I wish there was a law against making DIY videos that did not start with a view of the finished item. Watching people use a grinder and drill is of no interest to people who know how to do that already. If only somebody could come up with a ''fast forward'' for Youtube!

You certainly can fast forward Youtube videos by placing the courser on the sliding dot at the bottom and dragging it along.

I hope you do not think I was complaining? I was simply commenting on the overwhelming number of Youtube videos that do not start by showing what the build is in the first moments so that one can decide if they want to sit through the build process. If there was a fast forward one could skim through the parts that are of no interest to somebody that knows how to do that part. I used drilling steel as an example because I can do that better than most and it is painful to watch an amateur do it. On most projects there there are things that are not immediately evident and require some head scratching to resolve. Those are the things that a video can demonstrate and be of service to the world. Watching poor technique applied to things like welding and tool use is not a public service.
If I watch a video on basket weaving I want to watch the whole process because I have no experience and find the whole process fascinating. A basket weaver will be watching to get ideas on a shape or material or overall effect. Remember we are talking about DIY videos, not ''technique'' videos.

I wish there was a law that each DIY video had to be reviewed before it is posted on utube, and the stupid ones not posted. That should cut down on the number of utube videos by at least 90-95%.

Sometimes the obvious eludes us until it slows down enough and we catch up.

Some take longer to catch up...

...and I also vote for review/reject submitted videos...good idea...
