I recently ran across this guy, he does recoverys of 4 wheelers that get stuck. Found it pretty entertaining especially him building the Morrvair.
I watch every one of his videos. I find them oddly addictive and entertaining. Then again I can sit and watch heavy equipment work all day and not get bored with it.

So far this week, I have learned how to repair oh craps on heavy machinery.

Repairing a D-9 Dozer idler shaft by adding metal to the shaft holder and line boring it back to hold the bushings. Using brass threaded bolts screwed into the threads to keep from filling the threaded holes is probably an old trick but genius to me.

Gouging setting to rapidly remove metal with a flat copper gouging rod.

Amazing what one can learn from another's learning curve. We keep a Dresser 250, 62000lb dozer, lumbering along on our big boys' playground.

My favorite YT channels are a mix of guns and rebuilding/repairing stuff.

For small engine and vw repair: Mustie1

South Main Auto is a must if you want to learn diagnostic skills.

Car revivals/technical :

Junkyard Digs
Thunderhead289 (awesome carb guy)
Vice Grip Garage (the comedy sketch guy of car revivals)

Firearm related stuff:

Guns & Gadgets
Colion Noir
Demolition Ranch
Kentucky Balistics
Brandon Herrera (AKGuy)
Donut Operator

And many others, but these are the ones I watch the most of.

Not in Oklahoma!
I did not see any mention of your own Cowboy Kent Rollins.

I found him a few years ago and enjoyed his videos, but somewhere along the line his youtube commercialization turned him into a Martha Stewart!
