A lot of my favorites have been said already, but I've got some that I'm really surprised that no one said yet. Vice Grip Garage, Junkyard Digs, D&E in the Garage,  TFL (all their channels),

WatchJRGo, Deboss Garage, RegularCars Reviews. A bit less known but also good are: Junkyard Dave (presently custom-building an AWD, Hellcat powered Charger wagon made from Magnum, Challenger and TrackHawk parts, amongst other projects), TheSketchMonkey (redesigning past and present cars), D.I.Y AUTO SCHOOL (warning to sensitive ears, this guy's LOUD and swears a lot but he is a master of his craft for auto body and repair), Wrench Every Day (really more into it now that Jared is the host), and of course, those crazy Brits from Bad Obsession Motorsport!! :applause:

I'll second Vice Grip Garage: https://www.youtube.com/c/ViceGripGarage/videos

Funny, down to earth wholesome guy who obviously knows his stuff.

Didn't see DiResta mentioned yet?: https://www.youtube.com/user/jimmydiresta
He has a lot of various restoration videos but he's a old school YouTube maker that's done a lot to help out the newer channels.

Odd Tinkering has a good amount of good restoration videos of various kinds: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCf_suVrG2dA5BTjJhNLwthQ

If anyone likes furniture this guy knows a lot about restoring high quality American furniture: https://www.youtube.com/user/johnsonrestoration


This Old House, nothing more needed to say:

you'll start to get picky about the locks you buy, that's for sure. :D 


also, the top few comments are usually gems.


also, also:  after you've watch mayube 20 of them and gotten used to his cadence and mannerisms, search out the 4 April fools videos.  don't go right to them, or it's not as hilarious.   :laugh:

FortNine for motorcycle stuff, some of the best produced moto videos I've seen. https://www.youtube.com/c/FortNine


Revzilla now that they picked up Ari Henning and Zack Courts https://www.youtube.com/c/RevZilla


Scott Manley for space stuff https://www.youtube.com/c/szyzyg


Kyle Hill for a bunch of science stuff, and he's done a couple documentaries about various nuclear disasters and what caused them. https://www.youtube.com/c/KyleHillScience

I also love VICE GRIP GARAGE. Also JUNK YARD DIGS and JUNK YARD MOOK. Another funny one is PUDDINS FAB SHOP. WRENCH EVERY DAY is great, as well as TAVARISH. 


An awesome food channel is YOU SUCK AT COOKING. 



A great general arts and crafts channel is EVAN AND KATELYN.


Anything from MARK ROBER is great. And SMARTER EVERY DAY, and STUFF MADE HERE, all great for science and engineering

I second Matt's Off Road Recovery and Fab Rats. Those guys are just down to earth, good guys. Paul especially from Fab Rats is really fun to watch, and I've learned more about fabrication from his channel than any class or project I've ever done!


And I know he works on Toyota's mainly, but Dirt Garage does some awesome stuff in his build videos, plus the wheeling is great when he hasn't broken something the week before :laugh:

I've seen Dangar Marine mentioned, but another channel in close relation is Project Brupeg, about some New Zealanders rebuilding a sunken steel fishing trawler into an expeditionary rig. Pretty cool stuff, they're about to launch it actually.

Maybe a blast from the past for some of you guys, but Les Stroud, otherwise known as Survivorman, has a youtube channel. Most of his content is just uploads of his production TV series, but there is some youtube-only content and it's all pretty good stuff, all legit survival info.


The directors commentaries on the shows are pretty cool if you're a fan of the original show, and I think only a YouTube thing. The Bigfoot series is interesting as well, in that he approaches everything with a very open mind and just kinda touches on every little aspect of the subject without trying to lead anyone in any particular direction. One of his latest series is Wild Harvest, where he takes a professional chef out with him and they make gourmet meals with wild edibles, which is a very interesting change from how he normally presents things. He's also got some of his music there, a lot of which is featured in the shows, and some personal vlog-type things. Also a bunch of much more in-depth stuff on a lot of the survival skills that he doesn't have the time to get into in the full show. Lots of cool stuff.
