    You're not using enough angle on the rods plus they're too thin for that gauge steel next size up would be the go. You want to push the slag away from the front of the pool with the rod angle.

      where's the link to a video of you laying down rocket surgery quality beads?

      yeah lots wrong there, just wanted to glue it together quickly. Not sure the welder would handle thicker rods but might give it a go. will use more angle next time too, cheers!

              all good, i'll probably do some drills on the stick before doing the next welding job, need to spend a bit of time getting the camera settings right too, the welding bits in that vid are way too dark.

                Sounds like a lot of good feedback from the folk here.

                Generally, yes, you want a half decent video quality and audio quality, but fancy cameras aren't necessary. Most people have a very good camera in their phone nowadays.

                You'll be making basically zero dollars unless you can start getting into the 10k subscribers mark and get a few videos that start to hit over 100k views. Until then, you're doing it very much for the love. And even after that the income wouldn't match your Sunday morning paperboy delivery paycheck.

                If you're going to do it, you will want to do it for a reason, be it to educate, to provide how-to's or guides, or to entertain. Otherwise you're going to lose interest when you realise you're putting in a hell of a lot of time and effort for very little return.

                How do I know? I've done this sort of thing for a while now. I spend many hours a week on it, and sometimes it sucks, but other times it's a great personal challenge.

                  My channels have done better than that, the one that pays more has less than 1000 subs and the top video only has 80,000 views and was earning about $30 a month (down to $15 now, thanks youtube/youtube viewers!) but dollars per views varies wildly so it is hard to tell how other channels are doing.

                  yeah the money has to be secondary unless you are willing to put serious work into creating a clickbait/viral channel for a long time.

                  I'm guessing that was the aim with that aussie channel where basically all they do is drop shit onto other shit from a tall tower.

                  I started because I wanted to create rather than just consume content and editing is something quiet I can do when the kids are asleep. the money just made me obsessively check my views and look at the analytics graphs all the time, still do this a bit more than I should.

                  I've had more views of my videos than I have viewed other peoples videos which is a good babby milestone I guess. Definitely interesting being on the other side of the screen.

                  I find it amazing that these is so much high quality stuff with so few views, just comes down to what people want to watch I guess.

                    It's not easy (well not for me anway) but like anything, you get better at it the more you practice.

                    Unless you have something go viral it's really slow going which can be a bit disheartening to begin with.

                    Here's one of my recent videos:



                    Would appreciate constructive criticism / feedback!

                          unless your videos are a minute long I'm guessing you haven't reached the old 10,000 views threshold? My channels started making pocket change (though not enough to get paid) then they brought in the 10,000 lifetime views rule and they got demonetized, eventually they met that, now they are going to get demonetized again.

                          to add some actual info rather than just more bitching (from me) setting up an adsense account takes a bit of work, and you only get paid once there is $100 worth of dirty ad revenue in there.

                          what's your channel? swap you a sub for a sub

                            Just about half done with the first half of the first video, as far as filming goes. I've got to do at least three more of these axles this year so if this video isn't too great, I've got a few more tries to go.

                            Still using the ol' gopro, and I've decided if it does half a decent job then I'll just use that until I can come up with some more free money to buy a better camera. I can un-fisheye the video in the post processing.

                            Been focusing on trying to get good shots of the work being done, and less so on my ugly mug. Less chase of breaking the camera that way.

                            EDIT:

                            So, after finishing up the filming on how to shorten the axle video, I've got 32 minutes before cutting it down and editing it. There's still more work to go, but that'll have to be another video!
