    Nope. Mr. Pete in a video acknowledges he isn't the Tom Walshaw "Tubal Cain" though, sorry, I can't recall which one or why he decided to use the name. I'm pretty sure it was one of, if not, the first. Perhaps it was simply the Biblical reference to metal working.

    WB Graham,

    That locomotive sure sounds like a great project! I can’t say I blame you for passing on the ritual book if you’ve got clays to shoot today. It’s my day to drive the 90 miles to Phoenix, Arizona to watch my grandson play American football, so no shop work today, even though I’m in the middle finishing my metal work on a Mauser conversion to .25-06 for a new deer hunting rifle for my upcoming deer hunt. I’ve had to set aside my Moria fan project until I can complete the rifle, but you can bet I’ll be back to model engineering as soon as it’s completed!

    I had to give it up too, faulty liver, but once or twice a year I come real close to making a fool of myself and get some of the good stuff at that place. It's expensive, but you never run out of new ones to try!

    Mr. Pete's videos have some very useful information for newbies like me, there’s always something new to learn about this hobby!

    Sometimes they get a bit long in description, but he has to level the playing field and reach out to the inexperienced as well as the seasoned.

    He is, after all, a retired shop teacher and very much used to instruction.

    Mr Pete222 or also know as tubalcain has very useful information on his videos on YouTube , there’s always something new to learn about this and all other hobby's and I enjoy his stile of teaching.
    Mr. Pete in several videos acknowledges he isn't the Tom Walshaw "Tubal Cain" and also explains where the name tubalcain came from, for the biblical handicap. (“Tubalcain” in the KJV)

    I don't think he has progressed from being a school shop teacher. I unsubscribed from his channel.

    I've learned a lot from Mr. Pete222. No one is perfect, but he is knowledgeable and is quite capable of imparting the knowledge to me and probably a great many other people as well. I'm grateful for his efforts and his incredible volume of work. I've been a mechanic for many years and have come to machine work and engine building late in life. I'm almost 72 and it is most gratifying to learn new stuff. I purchased a 12" Grizzly lathe and have so far built a Stirling cycle engine and a 4 stroke hit and miss from an old air compressor. Great fun! I belong to an antique engine club, The North Florida Antique Engine Association, and exhibit my stuff at engine shows a lot. We have a show coming up the weekend of April 4,5, and 6 at the Stephen Foster State Park in White Springs, Fl. If you live anywhere within driving distance, come check it out. You could not find a friendlier bunch of guys. They are tremendously skilled and knowledgeable and helpful.

    Compared to the English greats such as Tom Walshaw, George Thomas and Prof Dennis Chaddock, he's sort of 'average'

    Get a copy of the Quorn, the Model Engineers Workshop and Workshop Techniques a or any of Walshaw 'engine books are see what it is all about.

    I'm om my second copy of MEWM having worn the other one out. Many years back, I made a Quorn. To use the words of the Prophet--------Argh!!!!!!!!

    Norm

    NB I visited an even older guy than me. He'd made almost all Thomas's stuff, had a highly developed Stent tool and cutter grinder- way beyond even the Quorn. I was simply introducing him to the delights of Pure Lard Oil and brought some conventional cutting fluid as a comparison. That sort of thing.

    We are still learning

    Regards

    Norm

    I like MyFordBoy but really wish he would talk in his videos. There are times i would like more explanation than what he does with the sub titles. There fore i don't watch him as much as others.

    What about Keith Appleton. I enjoy his model engineering videos a lot. I guess that is why I still like Tubal Cain because that is one of his focus. Most of those other guys that you mention that I am familiar with rarely dabble with true model engineering as I like it.

    For model engineering or making models Emmas spare room machine shop is another channel i like . For general machining interests there is machineNZ , chirpy’s tinkering, cam at battler ,the recreational machinist ,Bruce whitham, Randy Richard in the shop and tommy gun machining .
    Another is Mrcrispin but he seems to have gone awol for the moment .
    For blacksmith stuff i like this channel https://www.youtube.com/user/torbjornahman
    For those trying to learn arduino i like Paul mcworter , he is the guy that got me addicted to arduino - damn you Paul !
    Then there is a pile of channels i watch for 3D printing , electronics and fishing .

    john_reese - That's a nice list, I'm familiar with a lot of them, but there are some new to me I will have to check out. I hope this post is not going too far off topic, but I appreciate the other channel mentions also, if anybody else would care to chip in.

    If you have a favorite channel (or channels) I would appreciate a link, brief description, and why you like it; but please keep it machining related only.

    For my own short list of youtube channels go to the link below and scroll down to Youtube Channels:

    https://sites.google.com/site/lagadoacademy/useful-links#videos

    The list needs to be updated, which I will do in the next little while . . .
