    Glad you mentioned HubNut matt, Ian’s channel has kept me amused for a few years.
    His road trip to Croatia (in a very non straight line) in his 2CV was brilliant.

    that guy desperately needs to edit. You could actually build a respectable Youtube channel, with income, just ripping his videos, cutting them down to 10-15minutes

    It’s why I really struggle with YouTube stuff, the amateur levels of presentation, constant umm, ahh, err pauses as they think of what to say next or babble on incessantly. Hambini is a classic example; as you say you could actually make some decent 10-min videos if you cut out the waffle and swearing and self-preening.

    I like GCN and there’s a lot of woodwork/epoxy ones crop up on my FB which I find quite relaxing and artistic. WOOD Presents! is a good one.

    Maybe a bit low brow but watch the Dude Perfect guys with my son. Some of their stuff takes some mind blowing levels of skill and planning.

    Just prepared to be jealous at their lifestyle.

    zefrank1’s True Facts

    Witty take on wildlife narration. (Seemingly) effortless (and humorous) storytelling along with some stunning wildlife-footage.

    I have enjoyed watching both of these – probably only worth opening if you like sailing

    Technology Connections – a delightful chap doing things like analyzing antique toasters or explaining how oldskool twinkling Xmas lights work – covers all sorts of different areas and very clear & engaging.

    Wintergatan – or “One man’s descent into madness” as it’s known in our house! – this musician built a marble driven music machine. Then decided to build V2, bigger, better, to be taken on tour… Watch from the beginning, you can actually see him aging! The sort of thing that makes you want to learn to weld / get a CNC machine.

    I quite like the hydraulic press channel, something very satisfying about seeing things crushed…

    You don’t say what you’re into but I can watch some of the UK and USA woodworking and shed stuff, some great projects and tool use.

    I’m a dinghy sailor and a lot of the coaching stuff by people like Rooster or the splicing and ropework stuff draws me in.

    So I guess a lot of making stuff or fixing stuff features for me. I’ve found by saving bits I like in playlists I get a fair spread of decent recommendations (same with you tube music).

    But after a while I might head for a nice Norwegian crime/murder book and switch YouTube off.

    I’ve ended up watching a lot of Watch Wes work

    Bloke runs a garage in Kansas, fixes trucks, cars tractors etc

    And Twinstick Garage

    Bloke in Alberta restoring tractor units.
    Both are complete escapism for me, I’ve no mechanical skills, can’t drive a hgv or fix one.
