    Margaret, oh Margaret. Potentially the build that caused the most stress ever, taking over a month to complete due to every step having loads of strange complications. But in the end.. oh she's a beauty.

    Sorry for the resolution.... it was fully processed up to 4K before we went live. Once it goes live, 360p. We've reached out to YouTube to try to figure out what the heck is going on. So frustrating...

      Your video will initially upload in 360p, then increase to 1080p or 4K later on... I only have 4 videos out and even I know this.

    Almost amazing, but just another sub-par sleeper. Want to make it really good, try having all the drives working, instead of just dummy.

          Your double sided tape not only gummed up the cutter but it makes it heat up and burn the tool up. Try a tape that uses a VERY thin film "stickyness". The heat is supposed to be transferred into the chips. your machine is also probably underpowered so it would be better to do 2 cuts but much faster. since you are cutting aluminum faster is USUALLY better because you dissipate the heat more. faster in the feed and rpm of the cutter. you probably used a high speed steel cutter but if you can pony up the cash a carbide cutter will not have as much thermal issues. Lastly a good mister is pretty cheap. Just type in "cnc mister" in google.

                  Oh god for fuck sake, please please send alex to a teacher which teach him how to do Metalworks. I really hope he does this just for entertaiment purposes. For example he drills a longhole with a dremel and loses the Drill but more important and a way bigger nogo is that he cuts the metal plate and doesnt even smooth the sharp Edges. This can injure people really badly. Know how to use a CNC Mill doesnt make you a good Craftsman. He need way more experience with just basic tools like a fucking File.

                                    I really hope you still read comments from a video this old. You mentioned early in this video that the threadripper makes some sacrifices in gaming... could you do a video on WHY that is? I mean, 32 cores, 64 threads... that is a lot of power. Even if a game is designed with only 8 cores in mind, wouldn't that just means that it uses 8 cores on the cpu and the cpu can use the free cores for other things? In all my years of being interested in computer tech and working in tech support, that is one thing I've never understood... how a cpu can be "too powerful" to the point that it can make games suffer.

                                        Always break the edge (remove sharp corners) of the tubing so as not to have a cutting edge on the tube.

                                          Place your o rings on the tube before insertion. Been working with hydraulics for a couple of decades and found that works best. Once inserted push screw cap in place and tighten.
