building clutched sprocket shafts for Wintergatan's next gen marble machine: The Marble Machine X! These are the underlying shafts that support and drive the marble conveyor / elevator. Special thanks to Martin Wintergatan, Adam Booth, and Stefan Gotteswinter for being such good sports!

machinbrico : Should I use a European cat to create metric screws or does any cat work ?

Ben D : I was not prepared for the Shawshank Redemption ending.

Robert G : Excellent video Tony, it's marbleous! Your use of other YouTubers in your video is hilarious...but I sure wouldn't want to make the big one mad...LOL!

pazi : So THAT's how you start a lathe

Alex : The World now sucks a bit less.

Michael Gartley : I can't believe it! The moment you said who has time to clock in a 4 jaw Abom appeared in my head, just to have it cut to him a second later! I laughed way more than I should have. TOT, I don't comment much on videos but I love what you do.

Mahj : I guess this would be a bad time to tell you the dimensions were in metric?

LeiserGeist : Future 4072-Clickspring is gonna have a *ball* with this.

gerald chaplin : i wish i could thumbs up more than once you put a smile on face when i needed it relay bad thank you

Stefan Gotteswinter : Hey. Who filmed me in my shop?! You must have lost your marbles.

heardashot : This guy's a star. Wow!...what a very brilliant & clever piece of camera work. The cat bits just cracked me up. Very funny. Good sport this old tony, keep up the great work. Greetings from across that big span of water from Ireland.

fanert1 : i must be getting dumber with age but i enjoy theese videos more as time passes. thanks tony for keeping me smiling and stupid

Angel Bunny : Can I borrow your 25th edition shop cat handbook? I'd love to know what techniques and tolerances you use to get your shop cat to produce the parts and fasteners you need.

Covenant-R : It's so great to see all these great entertainers and craftsmen collaborate in different ways, and I have no idea how I found some of you, but suddenly this becomes very meta after you consider various combinations of Wintergatan, This Old Tony, Alec Steele and Alex French Guy cooking... all channels I started watching independently from one another... just wondering what the next surprise will be....

Beanpapac15 : So how long before you completely phase out your content in favor of reaction shots from other YouTubers and your cat?

ROSIE & HOPI'S DREAM : How wonderful that so many other craftsmen are so willing to contribute to your dream

kmikl : As entertaining as AvE... Nice.

3D Printed Marble : died when you said you've set the lathe to two... lol

1024 : "I already set the lath to 2" Lmao

* BlixTheDragon * : Drumroll please. “Martin rolls a drum down a ramp”

BK : lol, I know what the reference to the Australian reverse engineering is all about! Man, I love it when all of my favorite channels have Easter eggs in them referencing each other.

macsmith2013 : No safety glasses on the cat? For shame!

SV Impavidus (Ant & Cid Sailing) : It takes balls to post a video like this! Laugh? When Cindy heard my chuckles, she watched it too! You got a smile even a double smile at the ending! Your best to date thanks for the entertainment and engineering. Ant & Cid .

Zak Karimjee : This is actually the best video on YouTube

Ron Covell : Tony, that was absolutely brilliant, and I love the way you are collaborating with other YouTubers. The introduction was a wonderful tribute to the Wintergaten Marble Machine video. It reminded me of one of my first favorites of yours - 'Making Springs at Home', which riffed on the 'How it's Made' theme. The ending was a tribute to the Shawshank Redemption film, if memory serves me well. Very well done, and I can't wait to see what you dream up next!

Regulator Machine : this is one of those video's where you wish you could click the like button a dozen times while watching, so awesome!, thanks Tony!

Jake : For a metric project there sure was a lot of mention of pounds feet and inches. Curse you Ronald Reagan!

Sullivan : Oh my god. That was freakin’ awesome! Thank you so much for making the world a better place in your own, wonky way.

tunespt : Am I the only one who presses like in the first 2 seconds of the tot videos and whishes to press like again?

Brian White : Youtube minions: "There's no way TOT can do better than his last video!" TOT: "Hold my prune juice..."

Robert Stephenson : I was wondering why you had a keyway in the bearing until i found out your sweater had elbow patches. Now it all makes sense.

Mike Stromecki : I think this was some of your best work yet Tony! Great vidjia.

Poykeh Official : Nice tribute to "Shawshank Redemption" at the end ;-)

FlesHBoX : A few days ago an innocuous video showed up in my suggested feed about French Polishing a piece of burl wood, most likely as a result of my incessant watching of guitar building videos. That video was one of only two woodworking videos on that channel, but still I decided to delve deeper and discovered an amazing channel with a madman building a clock with tools he made himself. Eventually I managed to binge that entire channel, and what did I find on the last upload? A comment about another channel uploading a video referencing the clockmaker. So I did a quick search which lead me to this video. I sat and watched, and realized that in the last two days I had managed to discover two awesome new channels that will destroy what little financial stability I have as I am subdued into investing in metalworking tools to fulfil a new desire to explore this field. TLDR; Take my sub

Lauri Levola : These videos are getting epic

artfx9 : Intro was gold. Also, thats a good pair of shafts fir Martin's balls.

feynthefallen : Scaring little kitties, really now. I hope all your tools go metric!

Eric Kleinwolterink : This is maybe one of my favorite youtube videos of all time.

growmau5 : As far as YouTube masterpieces go, you set the bar pretty damn high Tony. This probably my 4th or 5th time watching this video, it’s awesome. Cheers.

EspriTox : hello hello, wintergatan sent me there

jukees : You are one of two channels with the bell activated. Congratulations.

Frank Smith : Hot damn. That was honestly one of the best videos I've ever watched on YouTube, and I've watched them all. Bravo.

Jeff Streak : The first time I met Andy.....uh this old tony........ *pans to shot on beach*

J Train : “12 of one and six dozen of another”

rousp1 : It is almost embarrassing to watch something this good for free.

Perran Normanshire : I love watching you work man. I do this type of work 9 hrs a day, 6 days a week but somehow your videos keep it all interesting. The ball and chain thinks I have some kind of mental disorder, she'll never understand.

Thomas Björklund : Lovely intro :-) and brilliant corporation between you and Martin in the video editing – I like your kind of workshop humor :D I’ve shared your video on – If Martin gets selected to go to the moon – I’m sure you would also be able to make some neat space equipment – with your tag on it of course ;-)

Bogdan Moldovan : This has made my day. It made my jaw hurt from laughing. But I feel bad for the cat, now it's all screwed up. Thank you, I got my fix now. Cheers

Mark Arnott : 20:20 Time 4 Kitten Play 👍🤪 😽
