« Part 36: A bit more insulation Part 37 of Shop stuff series Part 38: a quick build »

I sometimes remember to get the camera rolling and pass on knowledge that was passed on to me. I often don’t have anywhere to put them though, so I started a new series. Doc’s Little Docs. We all started out knowing nothing, and often times, small bits of knowledge go by the wayside because people just assume that they are common knowledge. So although you may think that some of the ideas are self evident, or that everyone knows that, I think little ideas are worth preserving just to make sure.

I would recommend putting the topic of each doc in the title instead of just a number.
DLDs #1: Increasing the cut length on your sliding mitre saw.
DLDs #2: A quick saw shaped push stick.
Also, use the description to be descriptive. Describe what you are doing/teaching in the video. It need not be a book, but something would help. People use that information to find your videos and to decide whether to watch.

On video 2 at a minute and some in I still had no idea what the purpose was. I skipped to the end to see and then cba to go back and watch. Had I known at the start I probably would have watched straight through, or not watched at all ;)

Only intended as constructive criticism. I know the effort it takes to do video.

Pleasure, Jim. Glad I could help.

Edit: Yup, those scan far nicer. Each has your brand and the message. Win.
