Also... I would have never guessed Jodys first name was William.

And as for other videos... I feel like any other videos by someone with experience could be valuable. Certain people may not like the way Jody talks or teaches(I don't know why they would but you never know). Some people may learn better from someone like Dave or anybody really with experience. Different experiences may provide different perspective. Jody-pipe background and airplane. Maybe a structural welder or something like that and then you have a greater background of knowledge and perspective. As long as there is experience and they aren't cocky like Mr. Tig. Other than that it could help others and add to the arsenal.



i will agree with u on BOB he is prety good and like you said is not afreade to mess up and admit it..

as for chuckie.. he kinda quite making good stuff when he moved to texas. if he would not of taken free shit i think he would of been better off..

Jody was rewarded for his committment to the welding profession. chucke was rewarded by YT for having subscribers to his boring videos....BIG difference!

Wait? So you're telling me someone who has welded for decades and has trained hundreds personally and then many more through youtube and has had countless hours behind a hood and then created all of the resources for us like the channel, forum, podcasts, and he'll even some products deserves more respect than a guy who build sketchy oil tanks, gantry cranes, and then get free welders to run his personal shop with? Well what a screwed world we live in then. Gosh chucke is the only YouTube welder we should listen to.


Wait...no that's not it

AVE, a Canadian chooch meister uses a patereon to fund his videos. I don't like the idea of a continuing payment, I'd rather a one off . But I did buy a ruler from him. Warning: Don't watch his videos unless you like swearing and laughing your ass off.

I wonder if it is really less revenue per view or just fewer views. I think fewer people are watching Chuckee2009 after he embarrassed himself on WW.

Wranglerstar and Chucke2009 both have talked about having to go to private contributions to fund their channels because Google and YouTube are playin a game of bs. I guess "right-wing" channels are getting the short end of the stick especially. Now Jody never gets political but you know them millennial californians at Google-welding videos-must have an ulterior motive. Does anyone know if Jody is at risk as well? Now... He could thrive on private donations because so many watch and appreciate his videos, but I don't want to see a valuable channel go down because of this.


I really appreciate the concern but I think I will be ok. Just plugging away.

Why do you believe Jody might be at risk?

His videos are well edited, apolitical and focused.

His advertising is minimal and unintrusive.

He doesn't spout to hear his own voice and discusses first hand experience from his varied career.

Taken in whole, this is a recipe for success.

If he chose to discuss politics or religion, he would open himself to criticism.

He hasn't, so I expect he'll be just fine (as he posted a bit before this post).

Good on you Jody!

I assumed he walkouts by but you never know those guys at Google. They are taking down simple gun channels and people like wranglerstar-Okay he talked politics-first amendment apply here?- if they take out a guy like wranglerstar for not being "family-friendly" who knows what they would do.

I just watched a couple of this Wranglerstars videos.

His channel still works just fine. They are demonetizing a lot of content,which is the advertisers choice, but no channels have been "shut down" that I can see.

I think most are going to continue doing channel work, but slow down if they can't get some private donations or google decides to back off some.
