For the first “random” thread, I think we should have something mildly on topic.
We are all tinkerers and are fascinated with how stuff works, how to make things, and just sciencey stuff in general.
Here are a few of my favorite Youtube channels that are related to making, tinkering, and other stuff. If you don’t watch woodworking videos yet, I highly encourage you to. Woodworkers are engineers that just don’t know it yet. They think of the craziest/most awesome solutions to problems.
AVE : Does machining, random side projects, some basic electronics stuff, and my favorite series BOLTR (bored of lame tool reviews) where he takes apart tools to see if they are any good. WARNING:strong language and some on the edge jokes are frequent on this channel.
Tested: A youtube channel with Adam Savage (from mythbusters) as a main contributor. Mostly random videos of expensive products, but I particularly enjoy the one day builds and the podcasts with Adam called “Still Untitled”
mrpete222 (tubalcain): Machining (old school manual stuff), tools, shop tips, and small engine builds
EEVblog (and EEVblog2): Electronics tear downs, other cool electronics videos
LinusTechTips: Computer stuff
bigclivedotcom: electronics tear downs, modifications, overviews of how things work
Steve Ramsey (woodworking for mere mortals): Woodworking videos
Frank howarth: advanced wood working videos, amazing bowls, and a unique editing style (stop motion with sound added in throughout the videos)
izzy swan: Woodworking videos with a twist utilizing tools in unexpected ways
