I'm subscribed to this guy as well. I don't know why but his way of commentary is always hilarious LMAO. But very informative topics he got there.

I have recently found Allen Millyards channel and am blown away. The Kawasaki ZR1 modification to a 6 cyl is amazing for a man in a shed. Yes he has a few big machines but it is primarily hacksaw, file and welder type work.


And if you want to give us a follow and see what we are up to in the shop head over to Vintage Underground. We just hit 1000 subscribers and am told this is when things start to happen.  It turns out I cannot speak in front of a camera so I am usually background noise

SOUP Classic Motoring: This guy does amazing stop motion video of the complete disassembly and restoration of a couple of his cars. He started with a Range Rover Classic Vogue and is working on an Esprit and W123 Benz. I'm a bit behind, so he may have moved on, but the vids are great.

Fingerprints Workshop: This dude is doing an awesome job restoring a very neglected Fiero. I don't generally care about Fieros, but his humor, high production quality, and insistence on doing all of the work himself makes this an excellent series to watch and enjoy.l

The Asian Arthur Tussik.

Just don't let OSHA see his videos.

Especially the welding bits.

Allen Millyard is a bit of a legend in UK bike building circles.

Rightfully so! As much as I don't care about a viper engined bike, the engineering behind adding cylinders to existing engines is fascinating

I'd say he's a legend worldwide.  smiley  I've been following his exploits for probably 20 years now in the motorcycling media.

Donn DIY - I've been seeing his videos pop up off and on for a while and I finally subscribed, I think lots of you would enjoy the content too. Cool homebuilt machinery and vehicles, lots of fabrication with no talking and very little of him pointing the camera at his own face. Almost like welding and grinding ASMR.

Aside from GRM,  I like Alex on Autos.  He's got a pretty unbiased look at new cars. Ryan at Driving Sports has upped his game as well.

Been watching some model railroad channels lately.

Dan Cortopassi has good tips on how to fix and adjust wheels and couplers to make trains run better, and also does reviews.

Ron's Trains N Things has a lot of how-to guides, with a focus on N scale, but most info can be applied to all scales.

SMT Mainline has a lot of videos about taking old broken trains and making them work again.

Jenny Kirk reviews mostly OO-scale locomotives as that is the preferred scale in the UK, but she also makes how-to videos and interviews with people in the industry.

Kathy Millatt does awesome how-to videos on realistic scenery and dioramas.

To add on something similar to the Mark Felton stuff, I would recommend Megaprojects (and he has other offshoot channels as well.  Good host, 15 minute videos, well presented.



Urchfab- lots of welding and fabrication work, some really cool projects



The pandemic got me back into Disc Golf, so I've been watching the pro tour to get ideas, great production on these videos from JomezPro

This person has a channel of motorcycle and car stuff, but I'm really into the POV Caterham drives through the Japanese countryside. Above, the driver meets up with someone in a Mitsuoka Zero1 and they just putt about. None of it is lairy driving or anything. It's just relaxing to see someone out for a good drive.

Ooh I think I'll check out disc golf.  


Geoffrey Croker - relaxed videos about restoring a 1978 Land Rover in his garage (just got to doing frame work & putting the body back on). Nice editing and explanations.

Jafromobile - makes informative videos about car systems, like a shop class. DSM based, currently rebuilding/building a turbo Elantra & GSX. Humble guy, thorough, always worth a recommendation. If you like DSMs, Jason Drew's DSM is worth checking out. Not many videos but the car is beautiful.

Patrick Laine - think he's a retired French fighter pilot who now makes videos about his solo sailing trips. Just general life stuff.

Life on the Hulls - guy who runs a fiberglass kayak business is building a 40' fiberglass catamaran mostly with his own two hands in Australia

Jiveturkey / Sub Brief - retired submarine sonar operator, from the 1990's I think, who makes videos about modern submarines / naval industry / submarine video games. 

Knyght Errant - hobbyist who makes thorough videos about medieval armor & culture / history


Larger channels >250k

44teeth - a bit like OG Top Gear. 2 guys who like motorcycles, one is a former British Superbike rider. They do bike reviews & some bike vacations/challenges. Some silly, some serious.

Matthias Wandel - popular channel about hobbyist woodwork/engineering. If you already like his videos I bet you'd like lesser-known Matthias Burger (think he's a German & has a few videos about restoring his ... 600 year old? ... house) & maybe Marius Hornberger who also makes woodworking machines. 

My Mate Vince - novice hobby repair of mainly electronics. "I bought 5 broken xboxes on ebay, can I get any to work" kind of videos, but does a good job explaining the process & not much clickbait.

Motorweek - uploads some of their old car reviews from the 1980's/1990's, which I think is a neat reminder of where we're at today. Also helps to remind me that car companies have marketing departments. 

MotorTrend Channel uploads like 8 hour long videos of the Hot Rod Drag Week & you can watch all kind of cars at the dragstrip all day & hear the various updates of who broke, who's wining, who needs what etc.


If you like machinists-

Keith Fenner - does general repair of all kinds. Like a machinist handyman I guess.

Keith Rucker - specializes in antique stuff & steam locomotive work; not as practically applicable to modern times

Oxtoolco - too advanced for me to understand, but I enjoy some of the simpler projects.

This Old Tony - humorous videos about machining & everyday engineering 

Clickspring - machinist stuff. Was making a replica of the Antikythera mechanism with just hand tools, but I think it was put on hiatus

Stefan Gotteswinter - thorough and meticulous.

https://www.youtube.com/c/SK8215/videos - This guy scratch built a tube frame race car that uses an E55 drivetrain. Lots of cool engineering and fabrication work is being done. 

https://www.youtube.com/c/rdavidr/featured - GRM ethos but with drum kits 

https://www.youtube.com/user/0understeer/featured - Pro Am European rally coverage

https://www.youtube.com/c/RMCRetro/featured - Sort of like LGR but with 100% more British accent 

https://www.youtube.com/c/LOOKMUMNOCOMPUTER/featured - FURBY ORGAN! This guy does a lot of cool projects with electronics and synthesizers and has an infectious, quirky energy. 

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCx4MHIcTdwdcmJ5accSDlPA/featured - Humorous videos about analogue photography

https://www.youtube.com/c/InAnInstant/featured - Extremely well produced videos about instant photography

Lou Trottier has a local shop and supports/runs in one of our autocross series. He is currently doing a build series doing a restoration on a Ferrari 308 and it is pretty good - https://www.youtube.com/user/loutus

I just had to post my channel here since we are talking about things. I have not uploaded things in a couple of years and it was more random stuff than anything. Am I doing anything with it? Nor sure. I really should upload a bunch of videos from the dirt track I have taken over the past few years though.

Grind Hard Plumbing


from creating turboed or supercharged powerwheels, to 2JZ swapping a lawn mower to TDI swapped a vanagon, these are our people. It's like if GRM were in the north with long boring winters and without submission deadlines.
