    I ordered a tee shirt from you and it is way too small. Much smaller than the size listed. I have tried to return it but teespring wont reply to my mails.

    Hey Tony, I was wondering if you have a place where you post the designs you make in solidworks, or the creation process. I'm actually learning a lot from your channel but it wouldn't hurt to learn more :D

    It's pronounced "wewd". Sexy handle, Mr. This old

    Funny thing, it’s super easy to weld 3mm steel with a 1/8th E6011, and as a direct result of that, the number of dustpans that are 3mm thick is above zero.

    I once forgot everything exept metalworking and breathing, shat myself on the spot.

    I await a video of the original broom-handle treatment, which would feature the crafting of the nail and the felling of the tree. Can you imagine what it was like to live when nails were made one by one?

    Funniest metalwork channel on IT-my by a 1,000,000 thousandths of an inch.

    It bothers me that the hole is not really functional. It really needs a up and down hole not a left to right hole.


    Did I miss something? When do we get a MAHO update video? All the teasing of her working is killing me lol.

    WOW! Thank you so much...... aaah nevermind..... now I feel old. I remember those days of no internet, no cellphone flashlight, ( because there where no cellphones) and the NES was super rad! But really, thank you for your hard work! As a maker of "forged/blacksmithed" total messes, and weird ways to overcomplicate extremely obvious solutions. I truly appreciate what you do. More please!!


    Really nice design and execution Tony. Looks like the Maho is really working great! ATB, Robin

      thanks Rob!

  • TheRegret

    it's so great to see well finished, machined parts, for even the most mundane of objects. if only i had a several thousand dollar CNC drill press/cutting press lol. then again adam savage has pretty much a much more expensive "classic tech" non-CNC drill press machine and a large enough lathe to fix any mistakes or balancing, but this is like wonerful engineering at it's finest

    Just Brilliant! Enjoyed and laughed all the way through. Merry Christmas TOT and family.

    Hi Tony, Aluminum should probably be anodized to protect it from machinists - have you thought about filling a bucket with sulphuric and wiring it up?

    I hope that Santa brings me a new TOT video this Christmas, it's all I want. I've been good this year, apart from when I was bad, but no one got hurt, so hopefully Santa will play the game, cut me some slack ya big bearded bastard, its been a hell of a year, and you still haven't brought me the Lamborghini or the supermodel I asked for so I reckon you owe me one.

    Hi love all this sort of thing, I watched yours and Ron's videos - excellent. That aside and totally unrelated, I stumbled across this Russian guy's video and thought "that's stuff that TOT would do" have you seen this?

    Why are there grooves in that mill table you fondled so much in this video? My Bridgy hasn't got grooves. Do I want grooves? What do grooves do? Should I put grooves in my table? (not bloody likely) Also: I bought that Richard Finch book. And your description of his stuff -- yeah. I didn't get much out of that book.

    At this point, I don't know why you don't show your face. If I ever heard your voice I'd know it was you, grab a beer and put it in your hand. Hopefully one day I'll be in this old town, but that would be awefully coincidental. Love your videos, and your sense of humor. Hope you've been well in these trying times.

    Dear This Old, after the difficult year we all had, I will be so bold as to hope we all deserve a TOT Christmas Story while you clean up on Christmas day like last year. Hoping you made a good mess to allow for it, and wishing you a merry Christmas and a Happy new year!

    Tony, nice job as always. I'd be afraid to use that thing and probably hang it behind glass marked " Use only in case all other dust pans in the world disappear". Off topic, I always enjoy your videos and the production content is top notch. Can you share what video software you are using and how much computer does it take to drive all that stuff. I'm looking to up my game and admire your material greatly. Thanks Tony. Stay well.

    • Joe Pieczynski

      @This Old Tony Thanks for the reply Tony, I'll certainly check it out. Have a very Merry Christmas and best of luck to you for a healthy and successful new year. Congrats on the success of your channel. Well deserved.

      Joe! Stop it you're making me blush. I use Premiere Elements (the cheap version of Adobe Premiere)... plenty good for what I need... and no monthly subscription! Not sure what the official specs are to run it, I'm sure it's on their website, but I have a ~3 year old laptop that seems to do pretty alright. It breaks a sweat doing the final processing and absolutely chokes if I try to throw 4k at it, but otherwise okay.
