My all time favorite design video is “Homemade – Boring Head” by This Old Tony on Youtube. This Old Tony has a home machining channel that, in my opinion, is very well put together; all of his videos are very well-edited and seemingly professional. His content is always intelligent, interesting, and frankly fun to watch. In this video, he goes through his process of creating an adjustable boring head for his milling machine. From start to finish, his design and method of machining this tool is well thought out and the end result is pretty incredible. In regards to aesthetic, there were some design choices that he made purely for the visual aspect. He goes through his choices for the engraving fonts he uses on the dial and the tool itself, as well as the profiles and shapes of some of the components in which a feature is more aesthetic than functional.
