Hey all, I just was wondering what your favorite YouTube channels are.
It’d be great to see what others are enjoying, so I think if we mentioned a couple of our favorite channels and posted one or two representative videos, maybe we help find great video content for others too.
I’ll give it a go:
1. The Signal Path Blog
In this channel, Shahriar does repairs and teardowns of electronic equipment, explaining how they work during the process. The concepts are often quite advanced, but if you’re a student studying electrical engineering, his videos are great.
Hopefully when I become more knowledgeable about electronics, I’ll be able to give back to the community just like Shahriar.
One of the most popular electronics channel. I find Dave quite funny and entertaining, and the channel is geared towards those who want to get their hands into electronics. Runs a large forum as well.
Mr. Photon likes to blow stuff up by hooking up appliances to 2-3x their rated voltages. Not too educational, but quite entertaining to watch.
4. Tek Syndicate
Logan, Wendel, and others talk about computers and technology. Well edited and has a large fanbase.
Gathers up tech news and discusses them in a weekly basis, and they keep me up to date.
Most recent video:
Gotta give a shout out for the Old Lumens channel. I’ve actually learned quite a bit from him and this is an official thank you to him.
The rest are primarily gun related because let’s face it, I’m a gun addict and I don’t want any rehab for it either.
FPSRussia, it’s stupid but I enjoy it
Ryan Pahl because he had some of the same struggles in long distance shooting as I have had
Jerry Miculek because he’s freaking awesome
EEVblog and OL…
And i love watching smartphones put through hell
LED lights and other electrical stuff with dissasembly videos:
Beautiful Handmade Knives
not knives, but even more awesome videos:
I think everyone knows him:
Awe Me Channel
No Cliff Stamp channel ? what kind of heresy is this ?
I like EEVblog and OL as well, I also like a few of the mechanist channels. oxtoolco Abom79 and Keith Rucker are always enjoyable to watch.
Tips from a Shipwright because the guy is a true craftsman.
I also like watching Exploring Abandoned Mines in CA, NV, and AZ although I’ve always avoided old mines myself.
I almost forgot Hiram Cook because apparently I really do enjoy watching water boil.
Well since I started doing some videos for “Tech Tool Supply”: https://www.youtube.com/user/ttsvideos, how about that one?
Other than than that, or my channel with flashlight reviews, I sort of like funny channels and camera stuff.
Mattias Burling, for his camera videos.

For the Outdoorsman , BushcraftUSA .

One I left out is unplugged woodshop. I like watching people with skills I’ll never hope to have. This guy makes beautiful wood items like the architect’s table in the video below. Only thing, he uses no power tools. He only uses hand saws and hand planers and hand bits. I priced the tools he uses and each planer is about $300 and each saw costs just as much. He also uses very few if any screws as he uses hand made dowels to put the pieces together. His hand fitting of pieces together rivals what most skilled woodworkers can do with up to date machinery, but he does it all by hand. It takes a little while to watch each video until he’s done, but it’s impressive. My dad has about $40K in woodworking equipment and he was impressed.
Locktube is interesting when researching locks.
The Slow Mo Guys
Those are my “techy/nerdy” subscriptions…I have 64 in total (many are conservative talkshow vblogger channels)
+1. Perfect to learn the knots.
Some of their early stuff is a bit “adult rated” as two knotty boys, they have a brand named two knotty boys that sells paracord supplies now as well.
A great resource for paracording though.
I learned about well made shoes and raw denim on the art of manliness, so I second that.
I hate you all as I dont have time to watch a tenth of these but one I did watch and glad you could not see the expression on my face as I was dumbfounded by the abilities of this guy Stan Wilson. What an ability to use basic tools and his imagination. Wow.
