    Hey Tony, I was wondering if you have a place where you post the designs you make in solidworks, or the creation process. I'm actually learning a lot from your channel but it wouldn't hurt to learn more :D

    Funny thing, it’s super easy to weld 3mm steel with a 1/8th E6011, and as a direct result of that, the number of dustpans that are 3mm thick is above zero.

    WOW! Thank you so much...... aaah nevermind..... now I feel old. I remember those days of no internet, no cellphone flashlight, ( because there where no cellphones) and the NES was super rad! But really, thank you for your hard work! As a maker of "forged/blacksmithed" total messes, and weird ways to overcomplicate extremely obvious solutions. I truly appreciate what you do. More please!!

    it's so great to see well finished, machined parts, for even the most mundane of objects. if only i had a several thousand dollar CNC drill press/cutting press lol. then again adam savage has pretty much a much more expensive "classic tech" non-CNC drill press machine and a large enough lathe to fix any mistakes or balancing, but this is like wonerful engineering at it's finest

    I hope that Santa brings me a new TOT video this Christmas, it's all I want. I've been good this year, apart from when I was bad, but no one got hurt, so hopefully Santa will play the game, cut me some slack ya big bearded bastard, its been a hell of a year, and you still haven't brought me the Lamborghini or the supermodel I asked for so I reckon you owe me one.

    Hi love all this sort of thing, I watched yours and Ron's videos - excellent. That aside and totally unrelated, I stumbled across this Russian guy's video and thought "that's stuff that TOT would do" have you seen this?

  44. Railgap Esoterica

    Why are there grooves in that mill table you fondled so much in this video? My Bridgy hasn't got grooves. Do I want grooves? What do grooves do? Should I put grooves in my table? (not bloody likely) Also: I bought that Richard Finch book. And your description of his stuff -- yeah. I didn't get much out of that book.

    At this point, I don't know why you don't show your face. If I ever heard your voice I'd know it was you, grab a beer and put it in your hand. Hopefully one day I'll be in this old town, but that would be awefully coincidental. Love your videos, and your sense of humor. Hope you've been well in these trying times.

    Dear This Old, after the difficult year we all had, I will be so bold as to hope we all deserve a TOT Christmas Story while you clean up on Christmas day like last year. Hoping you made a good mess to allow for it, and wishing you a merry Christmas and a Happy new year!

    Joe PieczynskiMonth ago

    Tony, nice job as always. I'd be afraid to use that thing and probably hang it behind glass marked " Use only in case all other dust pans in the world disappear". Off topic, I always enjoy your videos and the production content is top notch. Can you share what video software you are using and how much computer does it take to drive all that stuff. I'm looking to up my game and admire your material greatly. Thanks Tony. Stay well.

  68. Joe Pieczynski

    Joe PieczynskiMonth ago

    @This Old Tony Thanks for the reply Tony, I'll certainly check it out. Have a very Merry Christmas and best of luck to you for a healthy and successful new year. Congrats on the success of your channel. Well deserved.

    Joe! Stop it you're making me blush. I use Premiere Elements (the cheap version of Adobe Premiere)... plenty good for what I need... and no monthly subscription! Not sure what the official specs are to run it, I'm sure it's on their website, but I have a ~3 year old laptop that seems to do pretty alright. It breaks a sweat doing the final processing and absolutely chokes if I try to throw 4k at it, but otherwise okay.
