            I've been on a Deviant Ollam kick lately, physical penetration testing and various related topics. This talk he did is not from his own channel, but it's one of my recent favorites (language warning, there's some swearing throughout): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rnmcRTnTNC8

                    Great shop though.

                      Doing this for a living,I have to say the two machining channels that I have actually picked up new techniques and skills from are Joe Pi and Chris (Clickspring)Both,while they have different styles,cut to the chase and present some well thought out methods and techniques that are off the beaten path.

                      Keith Fenner and Adam Booth also have very good channels,but they mostly deal with te same stuff I have been doing my whole career.I like Keith Rucker for his presentation and commitment to preserving our industrial heritage and Brian Block for the sheer audacity of his shop build,he is in a class by himself.I call it "Homeshop Heavy Industry Machinist"

                      This Old Tony is just hilarious,but I have also learned a thing or two from his CNC build series.

                      Myford Boy and Mr Pete along with Brian Oglethorpe?? get my vote for best metal casting vids.

                          Brian is great.

                          Rainfall Projects is probably my favorite non machining channel.

                            I enjoy PBS Space Time. Hard to follow along when the math gets too complicated but it's all very fascinating.

                              I liked what Stefan G said in a video (can't remember which), "don't give old tools to me, give them to someone who needs them" basically. At some point I just don't see why some people keep amassing things and tools when they already have enough, like dozens of vices, or to take a non.machinist thing, people who acquire dozens of safety razors and straight razors, they also usually talk about saving money on safety razors but they must have spend so much money on all those razors and accessories....

                              Ok I can see why you want a few angle grinders, or a few extra sets of micrometers (I only got one, wish I had a few more) and calipers. But those have actual use.

                              I just don't understand the collectors mindset, I personally think it might be an illness.

                                How the heck to you get through your day with only a dozen? I probably have 3 times that, from hand held watch and instrument makes vises to larger machine vises and a bench vise. None really duplicates (except the Kurts but there's one per machine) and all serve different and unique functions.

                                Its about utility not need. I didn't have many vises when I started, but the utility of my shop is better now with them - I can do more things and do so more easily

                                I just don't understand the collectors mindset, I personally think it might be an illness.
                                I'm don't think I'm collector type, but just because you don't get something doesn't make it an illness. The world would be dull if all were the same. This is interesting discussion about when the mentally healthy activity of collecting becomes unhealthy hoarding, which you have watch one of those ridiculous TV's to see as mental unbalanced.

                                https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/b...reme-collector

                                If there's an illness its how into the whole making stuff thing I am, vs how many tools. I do sometimes ponder why collecting these tools and building the shop interest me (and I'm sure many here) so much, whats the psychology of it? Perhaps just justification, but I don't think its collecting as its not for display and everything has a use and is used. I don't think it is hoarding (although it definitely encroaches on living space, well garage and part of the basement at least) as I have zero issue selling something that's a duplicate. A small workbench and set of screw drivers is good, add a set of sockets and its better....then keep adding to you're I'm at. Has a line been cross at some point toward being a nutbar? Maybe, but who gets to say where it is?

                                End of day I hope its mentally healthy although I does probably consume me too much. I don't think its hurting anyone (wife might object to having lost the use of the garage) and I get a kick out it, self actualization and all.
