Default Lathe Knife Tool and Boring Tool Sharpening

Whilst it was my intention to publish one video a week, I have decided that I would like to bring the process to an earlier conclusion. Primarily so that I can spend the summer without the need to spend time updating my website for each one, and advertising the video on around 15 forum.

Therefore, this week, I am making two videos available, also doing this until all the videos have been published in early May.
The videos this time are.

Lathe Knife Tool Sharpening and lathe Boring Tools Sharpening, links to both can be found here, http://www.homews.co.uk/page145.html

Might be a location thing since he is in the UK and using different terms for the cutting inserts.

...A home shop person saturation spamming over 15 forums....

The introduction post was o.k., and if we want to subscribe to your videos,
fine & dandy, we'll get a automatic e-mail when you post more.

Either that, or at least just add your updates to your original post please ?

Can I please Digger just explain the situation. My grinding rests are being made in large numbers worldwide and have produced the videos to help them use them as I became aware that some did not fully understand how to get the best from them.

The only way I could reach most of them was to publisize the videos on the forums that have links to my website. I do not consider that to be spamming.

I will though do as you say and add additions to the original post. There is though one failing in that, and that is anyone looking for help in sharpening, say endmills, will bypass the thread whereas if the the title was sharpening end mills it would show what the video was about, as did the title for this thread.

Thanks for reading this.
Harold

I'm not the boss here, I'm just pointing out the fact that your starting to LOOK
like a spammer (whether you are or not).

Which may get you banned

It has nothing to do with "large numbers of worldwide users".
And if they already are using your machines, why aren't' they already
aware of your website, with it's new u-tube channel ?


I merely suggested putting your
NEW additions, UNDER the same thread which you started with.

Just looking for viewers to up his videos. Get enough views and youtube starts to pay you. So, even though he isn't 'selling' anything, he is still trying to generate income.

I've been a toolmaker for 20 years, and working with metal even longer. I've never had a 'holder' yet and don't intend to make one.

Harold is coming back and interacting with the membership here on SFT,
so for now he is not a spammer. I hope he continues to interact.

Sorry Digger Doug but I thought your reference to spam was due to me publicizing my videos on a large number of forum worldwide.

I think though, that as you mention users viewing my website, perhaps a quick explanation of the situation will help to clarify things.

The design was first published in 2003 in the “Model Engineers' Workshop” magazine then in 2004 in the UK book publication “Milling a Complete Course” then, more recently, in the US Fox Chapel Publishing book “Milling, for home machinists” in 2012. My website only giving the rests, and the above publications, a mention.

My website was first on the web in January 2009, so metalworkers were already making the rests well before my website appeared Because of this, and that my website has had no major changes over the last few years, there is no reason why many will return, even occasionally. The only way therefore that I can make at least some of them aware of the videos is to publicise then on most of the 19 forums which have links to my website.

I also have links from eleven non English speaking forum and one person on one of the English forums has added a thread onto a French speaking forum for me, any takers for other languages.

I think you are correct that one can get some payment for videos displayed on YouTub but I did not sign up to it. I have a 600+ page website, mostly metalworking , with around 18000 visits a month where I could attempt to gain some income but prefer not to do that.
