    I struggle with that also. The fact of the matter is when YouTube changes from a hobby to an business the channel changes. On ABoms channel between the going full time YouTube, I was hoping he was just starting a job shop back up similar to Fenner, however it does seem like the content has suffered, having trees removed and collecting vices for example

    I watch all the favorites. Mentioned above however I have gotten tired of OX Tool, and beginning to have the same feeling about Abom here lately. I never got into this old Tony just donít get it.

    I like Steve Summers because he does a lot with less, Brian Block is awesome just what he did with the Barn conversion is awesome. Some of his tractor pulling work is equally great.

    My self Iím gravitating to smaller hobby channels not the heavyweights just because of what others have mentioned in this thread. You will get responses and just as good ideas as the heavyweight channels.

    My self Iím still under the 1k threshold and gaining subscribers slowly. Personally the interaction with the folks who watch my videos is what I enjoy. At this time Iím not sure if I will go the advertising route when eligible unless your up to 5k the money isnít even worth it.

    I like Old Tony because of his wit. I love Brain and his dog because he's so down to earth and isn't afraid to show his mistakes. Though I wouldn't want to live in his messy house.

    In addition to the mainline machining channels I really got hooked on the Clickspring series on the Antikythera Mechanism, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ML4tw_UzqZE . Nothing I'd ever do but fascinating to see his skills.

    Except the other way round, Fenner first.
    Also agree with others that Abom & Oxtool are running out of stuff to do, and hence not so interesting anymore.

    is the Youtube revenue model based on how long you watch?

    The problem with a large number of these videos imo is there is 45 seconds of good content wrapped up in 15 minutes of blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. Mostly I can't be bothered to get though the endless Bob Loblaw part to the content. Clickspring would be a notable exception - if only they all put that sort of effort in.

    Perhaps its an unintended consequence of revenue relating to the time the eyeballs on the video.

    This Old Tony for entertainment.
    AvE has been behaving even more drunken lately and I haven't follow him that much.


    stefang and Fenner for more serious content. Never been able to stand OX tool (can't stand some of his manners but this is just my personal view.. okayyyy okayyy)

    I think Oxtool has some good content, but since I started noticing every time he goes "umm" I can't watch anymore.

    Not that is easy to make a good video, but I agree. The new "umm" is "go ahead and". It's so hard to listen to.
