Thread: Everlast Videos from Weld.com and Mr TIG

  1. #21

    Default

    I've been pretty impressed with the quality of welding videos available on Youtube. I was just about to start taking welding at my local community college but the class was full so I opted to just buy a welder, read some books, and spend some time on youtube. I know that there is no substitute for time in the saddle but it helped immensely to just watch the motions and especially videos on how to set everything up and get started. Some things just don't translate well to written instructions and these videos help. I will say that you can only stare at the actual welding process for so long before it gets boring though.

    I just don't care for that guy's videos. He's kinda long winded, he doesn't talk about the machine at all and he never even turned the machine on.

    More Jody Collier videos please.

    People have different styles. Wyatt comes from "This Old House" school of teaching. Jody's from the Tim Allen (Tool time) school of teaching. Both have their place. People learn differently.

    Being a fan of This Old House, I don't think I've seen an episode where they did the show from an empty lot beside the house and never mentioned the actual house or even looked toward it.

    No, but they are experts in taking a whole episode to cover how to remove a chimney. Something that can be done in a matter of minutes.

    I wish we could send him an Everlast helmet to wear at least when using our units. And it's true for me, I did not notice what unit he had (other than Everlast), assumed it was a 250EX 2013? It was 2013 and new knob arrangement, so that was cool.

    On the video, this was better than the other couple videos I've seen from him, an there was a summary at the end that most would have been happy with.

    It was long, watching him actually weld, but for new people, it might give them a better idea at travel speed, look of the pool, etc. Guess it depends on the person, and he might have a certain time he works with, like Jody says no more that 10 minutes. That is his people's attention spam gauge (and I agree, no more than that).

    He did have a tool time bit when switching from video to video. But the intro music I did not care for.

    He doesn't bother me from a consumer standpoint, but he does from a business standpoint. Even though I have no stake in it, he doesn't represent the product well. While he may be an excellent tig welder, he doesn't sound confident about any other process and made the smaller unit look like it was difficult to start an arc. He has some big flaws in every video and in this latest one he never talks about the machine, he never turns the machine on and he never even looks at it. Might as well just have a picture of one sitting there.
    I'm not trying to be an ###, I'm just giving my honest feedback and support Everlast.

    I agree. He could of at least mentioned what machine he was using when he was talking about the settings. "I'm using a Everlast 200DX set at 125 amps dc.... blah blah blah" You watch most diy type shows on tv and if they have a tool company as a sponsor, they make sure to mention it by name or show it in action (close up) several times. He could have done that at some point showing a closeup of the display once for a few seconds. Actually showing him ramp up, run a little, then ramp down with a split screen of the weld and the display would have been nice.

    For a 17 min video, there was not too much information. But it looks like the 2013 machine is working out good.

    If he was even welding with it. You could see the red torch lead was the same, but the machine was never turned on in any shot I could see, even the post weld wide shots. Was he using another for the actual welds? You could hear what sounds like fan noise, but it cut off right before the final shot. So it was obvious that when he raised his helmet after finishing the root pass, it was a staged shot and the machine was off again. It's not like the fan was that loud. But I guess they thought it was too loud, or something.

    Yeah, that would be cool. I've only seen a couple of videos that do that, and it's actually nice to see what the actual running amps are. The best was one of the Miller videos of John Marcella where you could see the display and also see what his foot was doing on the pedal.

    The unit was on in some shots. I could see the display. But the fans are loud, so they probably staged a bit due to the noise. Like when Jody talks during the welding portions of his videos.

    He actually uses multiple cams and different microphones lapel mic, boom mic etc... Depending upon which mic is being mixed into which shot. And yes, the unit was on in several shots.

    Yes I missed the on shots when he was tacking. The pace was so slow it didn't hold my attention and I admit I would move to other windows/screens while waiting for something interesting to happen. I do admit they are getting better, but I agree that this was about 5 minutes of content padded to 17. Even with the boom mic, the fan wasn't that bad. I guess the sound man thought otherwise. Overall the video production is really good. However, I still say they can pot down the opening and closing music quite a bit.

    I must have dosed off for some reason during the 24 seconds the machine was turned on 3.20 to 3.44
    If you polled 100 people who watch welding videos and ask which they prefer between Mr T and WT&T, I believe WT&T would get at least 95% of the vote. If done here it would be more like 99%... there must be reasons that I don't know. Maybe Jody doesn't want to do too many reviews or give one brand too much coverage. just my Name:  02.gif

    I like Mr. TIG. So what if Jody's videos are better? That's a pretty high standard to be compared against. There is still good info, and useful things to be learned from watching Mr. TIG, IMO. This last video had a lot of nice arc shots, which is more useful IMO, than showing pictures of what a machine looks like sitting there. I also really don't care about whether he "plugs" a brand. In fact, just putting a video out to teach people welding tricks, without plugging any brand, can only be motivated by genuinely trying to teach people how to weld. However, I will say the opening and closing music is still way too loud.

    Just my 2c. If you don't like someone's videos, the nice thing about the internet is that you can always just not click on the link to them. I like watching all kinds of welding videos on the interwebs, especially any showing some degree of clear welding puddle action.

    Well, I did not care for the very first one I saw, AND I did click on his last one.

    Other than a little long and the noise (music?) at the start, I thought it was great for people just getting started with TIG, lot of good info.

    Like Oleg said, that video was not about Everlast, but TIG welding. Let's see how the Everlast one is. And you can either not click on it or hit fast_forward > >>

    Oh yea, and the helmet ad.... Yuck. Oleg, send him a new welding helmet
