    it pays to be april wilkerson

    just saw Friday Live w Marc- Nicole they touched on "sponsorship and product placement" a little. The reason I began this thread was , I didn't realize it was as common as it apparently is. Giving April a new DC makes more sense now given everybody's perspective on it. I have a better understanding of why.

    What was the upside for Youtube to change these algorithms ? It seems it is to get content makers to create things that are simpler , easier for the novice to understand , creating more "views" .What led to all this ?

    I don't know if Clearvue has ever made a steel cyclone, but giving one to April will get some eyes on it. I'd love to know it's selling price

    I seem to be drawn to well produced video content , and I'm not sure why . I love Frank Howarth , yet I only use my lathe once or twice a year .I don't need to see another miter bench or Dust Deputy cart build video . Yet I'll watch the oddest things sometimes , knowing I'll never do that myself .I suspect lots of folks seek "interesting" over "educational" .I do more and more .

    No sour grapes here. that girl is hustling ,no doubt . Any sour grapes would result from the fact I'm too old to start a youtube channel . I'm happy as lifelong woodworker to see those perks for folks . What I'm curious about is that Pentz EF 5 cyclone , not her Nordfab ducting .

    Kev , I hear ya. She is motivated no doubt . Honestly , I don't follow her much. When your my age you fall asleep watching youtube now and then . I saw the new cyclone when I awoke, the video was playing

    She's not Paul Sellers , Neither am I . Some free tools are what bother me.

    she's mostly self taught I believe, and not for that long . She's to be comended for her drive , etc. Her youtube viewership numbers have been discussed to death . It seems obvious her success out paces her talent . Gotta give her credit I think.

    sounds like you have a killer DC also. I didn't know clearvue made anything metal. That was the surprise for me. Kev, is your DC metal ?

    1+ . I can't find any info on that cyclone. Is it new? The cost ?There is nothing on ClearVue's website.
  12. just caught a new video of the new Pentz EF 5 cyclone that clearvue installed for April Wilkerson. I'm at a loss for words. Envy is one that comes to mind.

    Once more unto the DW735

    chestnut that sounds good .I will go with the Byrd head,even though one must also buy the new bearings I'm told . A big floor 15 inch just is not in my future

    Once more unto the DW735

    I wonder if it is true that a spiral cutterhead is too much strain on a 735. Some folks think so it seems. That is the only planer w/spiral head in my future I'll bet. I would love some advice on this, as 2 grand for a 15 inch / spiral head is hard for me. Light touch on the depth wheel and a few more passes is fine with me.
