    Just a note since this thread is still going on that I think ABom's post "retirement" videos are getting better again. He's doing more interesting repair projects and getting back to the nice balance of talking and not-talking. Even the shaper videos have that more of that classic Abom rhythm. Of course the Instagram side is more lifestyle, but hey, that's Instagram.

    John K beat me to it, …..but that's a good way of putting how I often feel about so called monetising of so called social media.

I have a project (not machining) that several people have suggested I start filming, I'm just not sure how to make 3 months worth of me needle scaling walls into something someone would want to watch? I could certainly use the $$ to work on the project, and maybe a go-fund-me for a new roof on the place, just not sure I want to be an e-beggar.
    Keyword "if enough people are watching".
    No need to even make several videos per week but you would need to become u-tube superstar.
    Colin Furze is probably making between 1-2 million per year from youtube alone and he publishes maybe 1-2 videos per month.
    IIRC "hydraulic press channel" made about 200k revenue per year and they have ~2 million subscribers and ~300 million total views.
    "This Old Tony" should be in similar ballpark.
    Abom79 maybe half of that

    The hard part for me as a amateur is sifting the info- on subjects I know something about, it is quick and easy to tell if someone is a hack. Other subjects, it takes a while. I really appreciate the quiet, careful approach guys like Don Bailey take-there is no BS there at all.

    The fact that all this information is out there, on every conceivable subject, is a revolution in human potential- contrast that with medieval guilds, where all trade knowledge was tightly controlled. No wonder we are so productive!

    I wish youtube had been a thing in my youth- even as just an aid to guitar playing!

    Hey that DOOZER'S SHOP seems like a really cool YouTube channel.
    I bet he is a huge influencer of the metalworking community.

    ...and when he tires of having a 4' dia magnifying lenses over his head at all times ?

    "Stop following me and commenting on all I do" ..: crazy:

    Maybe the divorce was all about his video work.
    She drew the line at putting a video camera in the bedroom eh ?
    "But honey, we'll really start making money"

    Haven't seen Steve Summers mentioned here yet. Modest home shop guy, self taught. Has been doing a lot of repair work lately, and clearly explains what he's doing. Does tool and cutter grinder videos every now and again too.

    The thing that bugs me is ;- either Youtubers have such huge egos they're prepared to put a lot of time and effort in to making editing ands posting etc etc videos …………. OR there's a lot more in it than is being let on.

    Taking Abom for example, …….. we know he can make a good hourly rate machining and wheeling and dealing with tools and machinery ……….so can YouTube match it?

    Don’t forget about the merch. That can be a good income stream.
