  • Product placement Utube

    Skipping some of my favorite Utube sites because of product placement segments. Most useless.

    Refreshing was Lou Sauzeddes review of Robyi’s electric hand plane in Tips from a Shipwright. Lou is pro with decades of experience, uses a Ryobi plane like its a paintbrush free hand. Ryobi sent him new one to review. Bet they were surprised by the result. He praises it while ripping apart & modifying to suit him.

    Review starts couple minutes into the video. Wish more UTubers did it his way

    Wow. That was a good review.
    I wonder if the Ryobi engineers watch this and learn ?

      I don't watch these things but often I'm using a product (not necessarily HSM related) and wonder how it could be so badly designed and get through Director approval let alone User testing and review. It would be interesting perhaps to find some review/product placement for such items and let rip.
      Then again when I have been involved in design/specification so often it has been " we did it that way last time", "no budget", "no time" "marketing thinkit's great" etc. Particularly peeved by a current software product we are rolling out that was reworked in the EU which has removed a particular feature I managed to get introduced about ten years ago.

        If they sent it to him, you can bet your sweet you know what that someone there has looked at his review and changes. And they did learn something. The only question is, WHAT?

        I can see the meeting that discussed his video going two ways, perhaps more. Depends on the climate at the company.

        And if you look REAL close at an analog signal,
        You will find that it has discrete steps.

          It retails for $80, TTI probably buys them for half of that or less. Chump change to get it in the hands of a serious woodworker.
          The video link posted is from 2018, in 2019 owners are still reporting the same faults. So no, the Ryobi Engineers are not listening or don't care.

            Lou is still using his Ryobi planer. Current Utube he has out 23 foot skiff he designed to be built easily , cut oversize plane to fit on the Molds with it. One of his videos showed a shelf full of Porter Cables, he said the most dangerous tool ever made. Before light planers hand held were a real handful & generally dangerous.

              It's doubtful they are worried about learning anything. If you want to see someone constantly rip on a companies products, you should watch what the lockpicking lawyer says about Master Locks when he does a review of their latest and greatest. And he's an extremely popular specialist youtuber. And he points out very simple and cheap fixes for their locks weaknesses. If anything, Master Lock products have gotten worse.

              There are a lot of considerations that go into designing a new product. And watching some youtuber do a review on your product to maybe learn something, ain't something design teams are much concerned about.
              If you think you understand what is going on, you haven't been paying attention.

                Locks do not need to be good. especially Master padlocks and the rest of those. They just keep out the curious.

                Who bothers to pick the lock? Cutoff disk in a battery angle grinder and you are in right now.

                  Many years ago in Junior High School we had moved back into the locker room because a sudden heavy thunderstorm had come up. While waiting, I was leaning on a locker and I randomly fiddled with the Master combination lock, and after a few tries it popped open! Yeah, they are not high security. Yale locks were better.

                    You should watch some of his videos. He picks locks open faster than any angle grinder. And with Master Locks, often faster than you can use a key to open them. But it is a skill that does require practice to be able to do. And a lot of practice to be as good as he is.
