Youtube channels you enjoy

Well I've been exploring the youtubes a bit more than what I usually do and I've found a few channels that may interest a few people here might enjoy. Why not post some you enjoy! 

AvE - general machine and tool breakdowns - NSFW or family 
Ultimate Handyman 
The Water Jet channel

And a few shooting channels if you like that sort of thing (I do)
Ted's holdover

I like AvE. Really seems to know what he is talking about. He gets a bit tiresome on long watching binges though. Maybe it's down to his made up language thing. I'm not sure, but I can't manage to make it through more than about 2 videos per sitting.

I will check out the handyman one.

My recommendations:

I really like Matthias Wandel. He does a very high standard of home workshop and project construction, frequently making and customising his own tools:

I quite like Big Clive (who is also an IoM based Scotsman). He does cheap tat and expensive tat electronics teardowns and stress tests and is entertaining in the process. I also learned a good amount about electronics from him without realising it had:

For cheap and not so cheap off the beaten path tech and camera reviews I like Techmoan. One of the few channels that actually shows you what you are getting with consistently comparable tests:

Tom Scott is good for ~5 minute videos about curious and offbeat things like the one below about competitive Christmas (straw) goat burning in Sweden:

Jay Lenos Garage is great if you have a spare half hour and like classic cars, bikes and big chins:

For bike related channels the Awesome Players are criminally underrated. They are a gathering of amateur adventure bikers who explore the trails around Canada on BMWs, but are always back in time for lunch:

Delboy's Garage is good for maintenance and customising videos for a range of different bikes he has owned over the years:

Opferman Motors Dirtbiking is good if you really like up to 700cc 2-stroke monster dirtbikes, riding or rebuilding:

Toshiro Matsuzawa does really quite amazing custom tank and helmet paining:

C90 Adventures is definitely also worth a watch. The chap goes around the world on a C90 and documents his progress. Really entertaining:
