Thank You I am off for now, thank you for the love & Respect!

Hey Jimmy, We all know David Waelder well but know very little about Willi. How did you guys meet and what is your relationship and back story? Not to pry just interested since he seems like a very important person to you. (perhaps your 1Million collection video. The collection of really awesome people you surround yourself with?) And - Are you going to sell the Diresta Star Key Kit you posted on Instagram?

When you have various customer projects, how do you charge? Obviously not the variance in material cost but do you base your labor off of hours? As a custom builder I often struggle with the leaving money on the table. Learning your worth is the hardest part for me. Thanks

always charge 5 times what your rational mind tells you .. you can always dial it back and end up above where you expected to be

Hi Jimmy, big fan,

Thanks to You, Matthias and Izzy i got the bug and started my maker shop.

As in Europe it's hard to find some of the chemicals by brand name, like Bondo is a polyester resin and i can ask for an alternative at the car shop but other aren't that easy to find out.

Can you name the active ingredient/generic name of the stuff you are using in your videos, or maybe do a Tip video where you give us alternatives or main ingredients of stuff you use. I just want to copy what you do until i build confidence and develop my own style.

All the love and respect, Stefan.

I don't know much about welding, but I see you use a MIG or TIG welder most of the time. Why choose those over stick welding?

Jimmy DiResta

stick welding is typiclay smoky and more for an out door activity .. not sutable for my shop indoors

Gotcha. Thanks for the reply. Love your projects!

I recently got an old beaten up butcher block that I'm trying to turn into a desk. How can I plane it down to get rid of some of the oil and grease stains that are deep in the woodgrain. Its too wide for any planer I have access to, and sanding has proven to be less effective than I first thought.

Do you have any future plans for books, with or without Make as the publisher? Do you find the experience of writing books or chapters of books rewarding in itself, or is it frustrating to have time taken away from being in the shop?

Jimmy DiResta

for me personally making a book is a huge time suck .. I pass on any one that involves me sitting and editing text.. I will likely never make another book.. also almost totally free of profit .. for me ..

Hey Jimmy, thanks for taking time out of your day to chat with us :) I'm a big fan of your videos; it seems like every time I watch one I learn something new. Thank you for the education and inspiration. Two questions for you:

  • In the 62 frames video, when chopping the wood at the miter saw you were holding it at an angle instead of keeping it flat. I know you don't do anything by accident. What's the reasoning there?

  • Whether it's grinding or bandsawing or using the lathe, whenever you work with metal it looks like tiny shavings of metal just fly all over the place. Do they ever get into the machinery and short things outs? How do you clean it all up?

Thanks for being awesome man.

Jimmy DiResta
Original Poster5 points · 1 year ago

Thank you! I was holding because it was a ruff cut and it was easier to hold and move that way

metal grining is too small to make a short.. but not for landing on the lather and the precision tools.. I try to keep it semi clean ,, and cover the lathe and Bridgeport with tarps

Hey Jimmy! Had a chance to meet you at the maker faire this year.

How much do you plan before start making something, and are you often ahead or behind the schedule?

Cheers from Brazil! Hope I get to visit your workshop someday! :D

Thank you!! the design begins the moment I start to talk about it and is always flexable.. my personal style.. I never make hard plans

Thank you !!

Thanks Jimmy, big fan of your work - making things, making videos and teaching!

As a maker/woodworker at heart who spends most of his life in a cubicle, I find myself discouraged because I only get the occasional weekend in the shop. Were there any times in your life when you felt this way, and how did you cope with it?

Jimmy DiResta
Original Poster6 points · 1 year ago

yes I have but like a prisoner I kept a vision of the day I was free to keep hope alive .. my big shop for instance

Hi jimmy, I'm a 17 year old woodworker and just started a business. I'm a huge fan.

When building something that you've never built before and have no experience in. How do you approach it? Like figuring out how and planning? Also how do you give a customer a quote on something that you don't know the value of?

Jimmy DiResta
Original Poster5 points · 1 year ago

research all of it .. do the math for th ematerials.. and some times make a mock up in mdf to understand the design complications..

Very informative. Will go far for a new business owner

Thanks for your "open resource" position when it comes to teaching/learning and making. At what school do you teach? What is the curriculum? and What age group?

My question is, who sells better band saw blades. Timber wolf or sawblade.com?

Jimmy DiResta
Original Poster7 points · 1 year ago

honestly it depends on how you cut and what you cut.. bandsaw blades are like cnc bits you destroy a 100$ bit or blade in one dumb move... just never buy blades from Sears

Thanks for the response Jimmy! And I don't buy from Sears anyway. I've been using Bosch blades from Lowe's but they're $10 blades and the quality is meh.

maybe making thins from paper and glue .. accessible to the person with limited skills

Hey Jimmy. First a thank you note: thanks for teaching me everything I needed to become a maker, sell my stuff and make enough money to move out and get married! My life right now is 100% your fault! lol

And since we need a question: from one teacher to another: what's the most satisfying thing you get from teaching? =)

Have you thought about doing pre orders for your icepick? I've been trying to get my hands on one for a while now but they are always out of stock. Also are you planning any more products with the printing press? Thanks again for all the inspiration and quality content.

Hey Jimmy!

Quick question - what's the best way to ensure squareness, and exact fits? I've adapted your technique of cutting proud, then trimming back as needed, but always seem to have square issues and gaps in a lot of pieces (no jointer or planer).

Thanks so much for everything you do and show. You are an inspiration every single day. When my days are low, I simply watch one of your vlogs (my favorites btw) or build vids, and my spirits get back up.

You've done a bunch of projects over the years. A lot of the videos that stick out in my memory have been things like bar carts and furniture with drawers etc. You've got a CNC now, have you considered putting your metalworking skills to use in building your own? Not necessarily all of the electronic parts, but maybe fabricating the frame/rails to be able to route a full sheet of plywood for example? How do you see technology like hobby-level CNC and 3d printing changing the maker movement?

Jimmy DiResta
Original Poster3 points · 1 year ago

likely ill never make my own cnc.. I think there will be a huge up tick in innovation .. with the younger generation making and cnc their ideas and personal products.. and robotics .. is is all exciting to see this and be involved

What was your favourite and least favourite projects on both dirty money and hammered?

Jimmy DiResta
Original Poster4 points · 1 year ago

fav maby the coffee bench the one with legs and hands.. .. on dirty money the show jumped the shark when some uncreative executive had the idea for us to make a pogo sitck.. we wanted to quit the show over this one episode

Wow, that's exactly my fav on that show! =D But i kinda liked the storyline on the pogostick tho lol At least it was entertaining to watch =D

Jimmy DiResta
Original Poster5 points · 1 year ago

when we had no choice.. we did our best to have fun with it and we did enjoy it.. but that episode embodies the failure of TV in genral uncreative people making creative decisions

Hey Jimmy, thanks for all the great videos.

How long does it take you to plan out a project, like the incredible Fireman's axe? Do you just see the axe head and it pops into your mind fully formed and then you just make that happen?

I've only recently started making stuff, just woodworking so far. Thanks for all the tips videos, they're great resources.

Oh, and what did you think of that Rose Engine Lathe I sent you a link to on twitter? That seems like the perfect tool for you to find and restore.

Jimmy DiResta
Original Poster3 points · 1 year ago

love that lathe!!!! mostly all my stuff is spontaneous .. I make plans in real time thank you!

Do you have any long-term plans for that gas station once you're done with it? It's really a gorgeous building I'd love to see it being used.

I know someone that took over a garage adjacent to their building and it's a fantastic work space. The garage bays, air lines, super smooth floors, etc etc.

I was able to turn it into a temp work space for when I have a project, and it's phenomenal. Using the lifts for heavier materials, etc etc.

Edit: Also being able to back straight into the garage for loading/unloading! Using the hydraulics to lift to the bed level and just push in.

What was the best diy/maker tip/trick/advice anyone's ever given you?

hey jimmy - long time fan love the videos. how big is the gas station - is it as big as the shop in the city? if the deal works out are you going to do a series of videos on the renovation or features on the station in the vlog?

another quick question - I remember you & david welder talking about a collaboration with casey neistat - do you think this would ever happen? any idea what you would collaborate on?

Jimmy DiResta
Original Poster7 points · 1 year ago

gas station much larger then the city .. by 1500 feet or more .. casey is the man on youtube id love to get together with him.. he is a mile away. he never answers my emails ..

Write him a letter instead! He seems to like those more. Also have you seen this video where me meets Spike Jones? Maybe if you called him a douchebag it would help :P

thanks Jimmy - hope the gas station works out

Hey Jimmy, what is your favorite glue gun? And are you ever going to have any guests on the Making It podcast?

Hi Jimmy, I'm probably too late to the party, just wanted to say you're a big inspiration, love your no bullshit approach to things. I got a bunch of questions, here's three:

What made you initially start to do youtube videos and what do you enjoy about making them?

Who are your favorite fellow makers right now/Who do you admire?

Any advice for people who want to make a living making things without having it become a daily grind for cash with no passion?

Jimmy DiResta
Original Poster1 point · 1 year ago

thank you ! 1 because tv was a hassle. 2 my community.. matthisas .. bob.. few knife maker:s sorell 3 it will always be a balance . some times the grind pays lots of money.

Jimmy, You often speed up your videos for obvious practical reasons. I imagine you put a fair amount of thought into the creative aspects of your videos to make them interesting. Have you ever thought of using slow motion for any parts of your videos to add another creative element? Or are there any other video elements, like your drone usage, you look forward to learning and/or applying in the future? 👍🏻

Jimmy DiResta
