In our first YouTube Tips video, we gave you a first-hand take on the top 3 tips for creating a successful YouTube channel from many of your favorite machinists.
In this video, we go a little deeper and get their thoughts on how they got started, why they share video content, and how to create content people want to watch.
Whether you’re a machinist, metalworker, woodworker, or maker of any sort and have been thinking about how to share your knowledge with others, video is a great way to do it. It’s often faster than writing, it’s engaging, and you can create more of a personal connection with your audience. Most of all, it’s really cool to see a community of people come together who enjoy making things and sharing different tips and insights with each other.
Not long ago, American Rotary visited another Wisconsin based business and their good friends at Tormach for their 2016 open house. The turn out was amazing as it was packed the entire time! The show featured seminars that were held all day long to help educate and inform machinists at all stages in their development.
In attendance was Autodesk, providing some great tutorials and training. YouTube machinist, John Saunders of NYCCNC, was also in attendance. As a friend and Sponsor of John’s channel it was great to visit with him as always. American Rotary can not wait to see what Tormach has in store for everyone next year and we sure hope to see you there!
Stan from Bar Z Industrial held his second annual Bar Z Summer Bash for YouTube fans and fellow YouTube contributors. After American Rotary sent down the AI 12 phase converter for the online contest, Chris and Jason went down as well. Here is a video recap of the day’s events, with commentary from Stan, Adam, John, Keith, Ray, James and more.
Before the 2016 Bar Z Summer Bash event in June, we stopped by the Marton Brothers shop in Lake Elsinore, CA. This was Stan’s second year hosting the bash for YouTube fans and contributors. So while on our visit with John, we decided to whip up something quick in the shop to give away at the bash the next morning. You can check out the prologue video below to get an idea of more to come!
