Actually, I made the mistake of clicking on Dan Gelbart's Building Prototypes Part 1 of 18, and was stuck for the next two hours!  Amazing stuff.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMP_AfiNlX4 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMP_AfiNlX4).

Excellent video Bubba, I like the camera idea to get a zoomed in view.
Bob,
You got me doing the same  ;D Dan comes over like a proper boffin but when you see his fingers up close it's obvious he's a proper hands on person too. A man of 1001 workshop hints and tips  :D

I should have had Dan Gelbart as a teacher.. he really makes it look simple.. because it actually is.. ;D

as long as you know what you're doing... that is..

When someone is really good at something it makes it look easy. Sometimes those people make poor teachers because they no longer think consciously about the whole process, they just do it the right way. I have always taught the young guys to never change anything until you fully understand why it is being done this way now. That may require you actually asking!

Hi folks,

yes the video series is really a precious source of excellent tips! Loved it when i saw the video about the high precision grinder/lathe about a year ago!

I would agree with you that this type of people are not necessarily the best teachers. But I convinced too, that as an audience, one can only find the pearls of wisdom and value if you learn to listen to the 'quite' voices as well!  ;)

That's at least what my wisdom of learning life has been so far...  ;D

Ding!  Ding!  Ding! 

In college I often tutored classes I was taking.  Teaching it really cemented the knowledge for me.  I also had a pretty good reputation as a lab assistant/tutor in the computer lab as long as the student didn't just want me to do their work for them.  One of them even tried to get me in trouble because I wouldn't "help" them.  LOL. 

After teaching technicians in my cotracting business for ten years I hated it.  I saw a lot of the same guy over and over who wanted to see how far he could push his OJT making the boss do his work for him.  Same guy different face.
