      @Lucas Bolinger So insetad of helping him and answer his question to show some kindness towards a fellow mate you prefer to use your time and effort to offend him by questioning his english skill?
      It is really sad to see how the ego of people takes over their natural sense of empathy and let them show their ugly side. A little kindness and empathy goes a long way my friend. It is exactly what we are missing in these days where more an more people are divided and missing the human connection.
      I am not saying that it was in any way dramatic how you responded but I just think it´s unfortunate, because you took the time to answer then why not respond in a positive way? Why prefer the negative way that could offend someone else and start an argument which is completley unnecessary and avoidable.
      I believe in a "butterfly effect" whereby the small positive or negative interactions spread and multiply. I think it is way more constructive and rewarding to be part of the positive and contribute to the multiplication of it, so that the world can be a peaceful and prosperous place for everybody.
      I really hope that you reflect on it and maybe you grow and be part of the positive even if it is as small as an interaction in the yt comment section.
      Mr White: "„Blurs“ switch? What does that mean?"

    After thinking abou this channel for some time, it occurs to me that these restorations are a form of time travel. We are seeing the original item, newly purchased, as if we lived in the day when it was new. How marvellous.

      @Michael Lovely that’s a good point. When someone shows you a rusted lump of metal and says this is what they used in the so and so years, it’s easy to think it was the stone age. Seeing them in this light shows the style and ingenuity of things like this used long ago. I love it.

    • Michael Lovely

      Some might call what My Mechanics does is restoration; I call it a revival and a look into the past because it is through antiques that we can see what life was like for our ancestors when they used them for everyday household tasks. A prime example of this would be the restoration of the antique Ox tongue iron that My Mechanics restored. His restoration of this iron showed us viewers what our great-grandmothers used to iron the clothes.

The photography is so brilliant, clear, and every shot is perfectly framed whether from 1 cm or 30 cm away. I can never get over how ingeniously you approach each little difficulty. Thanks! Thanks!

    The use of real brass on the viewing window trim was a very nice touch. It will likely age and take on patina similar to the new pan. You always make something better than it was originally.

    This dedication to a craft is extraordinary, it’s refreshing to see the lengths that this guy goes to, to recreate what the original piece looked like and worked like, especially in the “throw away culture” that we live in.

You seriously do everything. You are so blessed to have such talent and skills. Are you self taught or did you have instruction? Even the amount of tools and the quality of tools that you have is beyond belief. I’m sure you made many of them yourself. You are quality all the way!

    I just discovered your videos, and after a binge session, I probably experienced more drama, suspense and intrigue than anything I would have got from the equivalent time spent on a movie or couple of TV episodes.
    You are a master of your craft, and pay astounding attention to detail in your restorations. As such, I trust you won't think I'm being petty when I say that, I wish you had tested the accuracy of the scale in its original state... I don't know whether anyone else has mentioned it.
    It doesn't change the fact that your work here, as with all the other pieces, is ausgezeichnet.

      I find his videos so calming and relaxing, its a real pleasure. Thought Id have a look at others but the constant use of higher speed felt stressful to watch as you might miss something important and dont unterstand whats going on anymore.
      I think him taking his time while working on the object, focusing on precision instead of speed, then edited with lots of cuts but also always showing whats going on in real time on top of a great instinct for what matters and what doesnt make these videos the best by miles, at least of the ones I found.
      So if you know any other good uploaders that create the same emotions, please let me know.

      @JCatrileo Yes, he shows us what we want without drawing it out. When flattening something, he taps it three times, then shows that it's flat. When threading something, he twists it three times, when spraying something, he sprays it three times. Boom, boom, boom, done. And I always watch them on 2x speed :)

I have no experience whatsoever with this type of work, but I'm fascinated by your videos, and I love them. Brilliant!!

    I'm pretty sure that my dad, who passed away in 2006 at age 78, would finegle a way back to earth just to binge watch EVERY perfectly precise restoration. He was a 'pattern maker' in Ohio for a German company that makes machines that make the parts. He knew his way around the shop and restored and fix whatever came his way. But My Mechanics is on a whole other level, I so wish Dad could enjoy and appreciate this outstanding work, as I do, with fond memories of watching Dad attacking projects in my childhood. Thank you Sir!

    It is simply astounding the amount of damage the interior pieces had taken, I can understand the springs having wore out but the metal pieces that were gouged? I suppose it could have been something that occurred during the manufacturing process and the company did not want to absorb the cost of substandard parts so they were used in spite of the damage.
    It is always a pleasure watching you refurbish your projects, watching a master craftsman at work is like viewing fine art.

    The sheer quality of ALL his restorations are unmatched by any other restoration channel. After finding you, I no one else can compare.

      Most other restoration channels do not have access to hundreds of thousands of euros worth of professional machine shop tools and equipment. And I mean hundreds, 1 hundred thousand isn't enough to cover everything he has there.

      More like the shear quality.
      And the arbor press quality, and the oil can quality.

      @Jarik C-Bol this is what happened to me. Now I am questioning why people are not sanding out cast marks and polishing the heads of every nut, bolt and screw. The Hand Tool Rescue guy does some really cool stuff but he never makes anything shiny. Bolts must be polished, no exceptions.

      Agree, but LADB is still a bit different in that they really go for the original. I like them a lot too.

      Most of the other restoration videos I've seen, people just do a thorough clean up job and minor replacement. They don't go the lengths to actually make new pieces that this guy does.

    When my mechanics calls something a 'masterpiece' you know that is exactly what it's going to be. Well done, this was absolutely beautiful to watch!

    This is my favorite (so far!). Restoring and accurately calibrating a kitchen scale-next up-a microscope?

    Your work is amazing. I would call this remanufactured not restoration. So many of the original parts were remanufactured and some modified. Speaking for myself, someone with far fewer tools, I would have liked to see more of the original parts restored. Thanks!

    What a true work of art. I couldn't stop watching although I know nothing about engineering. Very relaxing film.

    2020 has been a dumpster fire of a year. We’re going to need you to make a new one.

      Brand new 2020 is a dumpster fire though. Restoring it will only bring it back to its original terrible.

    Потрясающая работа! Все думал. откалибруются ли, будут ли функциональным предметом. или фетишем-декорацией. Но не понимаю зачем снимать фаски на всех оригинальных деталях, там где они не были сняты.

    ... These videos are some of the best treatment for my anxiety ever. The ambient sounds without voice or music, the text commentary, and the fact that something broken is being made whole and useful again... it all really helps, especially when the world is... not so good. Thank you so much for all you do.

      @Margaret Watson Oh yeah, I love his stuff. It's not quite as sensory-overload friendly as these, just because he talks, but it's still good anti-anxiety.

      Same for me, also if you like the channel a lot I suggest you check out Baumgartner painting restoration. His videos have the same vibe
