Restoration Heroes


Although I personally feel YouTube (Google) is the devil, I admit I spend too much time on it.  MOSTly I watch restoration videos.  That is, guys who take and old, rusty, broken junk and put it back to working right and looking good.  Here are my favorites:
 

Hand Tool Rescue   He's the king, the master, the boss.  Also the funniest.  Absolutely fearless.  See how much you learn about how to take stuff apart and how it goes together.

TysyTube Sometimes he makes some decisions that make me crazy but no one is busier than TysTube.

ScoutCrafter  Just kidding--no one is actually busier than the new Pride of New York, ScoutCrafter.  3 videos a week, every week.  AND I credit him with single-handedly pulling me out of a deep, post election depression.

My Mechanics    When just restored isn't good enough.  When he's done, it usually better than new.  It's easier to believe he's a wizard than just a machinist.

LADB Restoration  He seems to have an unlimited amount of farm and vinyard equipment that needs fixing.  Nothing is over-restored.  Everything is just right!

The Good of the Land   He may talk too much sometimes and he does a lot of NON-restoration videos but his heart is always in the right place and he does great work.  Take the time to find his restoation videos.

Rescue and Restore  Every restorer had to step up his games once he started posting videos.  Super high quality videos and results.

RetroHax He focuses mainly on restoring old British stuff and that's just brilliant.  Watch the magic come out of his tiny workshop.
