Does anyone else watch vlogs on youtube?

I think this one would go down well with the downsizer crowd:

Interesting musical inventions for Sean as well as downsizing type ideas:

And interesting scrap-heap challenges for dpack, with an emphasis on homestead scale railway-path things:

perhaps a bit wallace and grommit to make it worthwhile to copy or base a cunning plan upon but very ingenious. i wonder why he thought "this job needs a machine on rails"

on a off rail system such as hand truck with a sliding /swiveling mount for the works would be more practical even if the carrier platform needed pegging down for the cuts.

a modified rotavator might be the simplest SHC for such a task

He seems to be fascinated by homestead scale railway anyway, as evidenced by several of his other videos, including one with a "monorail" for moving things

There one of the big reasons I don't proudly proclaim myself as "never watching TV"

Essentially youtube has replaced the TV watching I used to do as a younger man.... At least this way I have more choice in how I'm rotting my brain

Youtube also allows me to find British TV that I would never otherwise see. (I keep trying to imagine how most Americans would react to 8 out of 10 cats does countdown being on TV)
