- No flashy BS thumbnail or clickbaity title
- No annoying and pointless intro/outro blather
- No annoying and pointless music, just pure manufacturing sounds
- No pointless and distracting captions

- Pure making, making, making right from the start
- Perfect camera work, allowing the viewer to follow along
- A simple "thank you for watching" at the end. No "please like, please comment, please subscribe, please buy this, please let me annoy you with my other videos" etc.

Thank you ever so much for making this dump called YouTube a better place!

This video made my day. Me and 8 months old boy were watching this video without blinking and were enjoying all the precision machining, tools used and the lustrous metal pieces. The final outcome was just WHOA!!!!

2:30 I would have used the lathe on a slow setting to wind the wire and have it in neat rows with the sire perfectly side-by-side. I think it would look better. Thank you for another mesmerizing video.

Thank you for sharing, I can't stop admiring your work. When I was in engineering school we made engines plain parts, but were big jobs, your work has more meaning because of the size, precision and detail. All the best from the distance, Montevideo-Uruguay. Be safe and have a good day.

You only make really great videos, and I am excited of the next "four-stroke engine" video! I wish I had those machines xD

waking up at 4am wondering whats next in life, and then seeing this. definitely an inspiration. I love making things but have never used a lathe mill like this, i am not sure what the name of the machine is you used but it was exciting watching you build that motor.

That was the most satisfying 20 min shit I have ever done

In the flywheel, you should have drilled holes for screws on both sides to balance it more.

It was like watching my dad at work - he was a tool & die maker. A big difference is in the electronics - dad used handles & wheels, but he did some truly amazing work. Watching you at work was not just nostalgic but with serious skills like yours, every moment is an important one. Thank you for letting me into your shop and for allowing me be a fly on the wall. You are a very talented person.
