If this is your cup 'o tea, you might enjoy Mr. Carlson's Lab, a highly technical poster who likes to restore vintage electronic test equipment and other stuff. He leaves no stone or capacitor unturned, and a simple explanation takes forever, so it might be too slow going for some, but this dude sure knows his shit. Also, he pronounces the "l" in "solder." Is that a UK thing?

A very interesting site. I suspect the audio is speeded up like 30%. Perhaps it shortens the episode, but can people really communicate effectively like that?
