Please note that I have placed all of my knapping video's onto DVD's (except the most recent blade core series, which will be avaialble soon). These are much higher quality and have far better resolution than the ones I have on YouTube. If you are interested in these DVD's I have them available on my website at:
www.flintknappers.com/jimwinn.html

Below are links to each of the individual videos:
This is a 7 part beginners series. Check em out.

JIM,
I've studied your videos and watched them way more than a few times each. Your videos are very educational and your work is inspiring. Can't get enough here and encourage you to continue please. I've been knapping about a year and live on the Onondaga Escarpment. I really like Onondaga Chert, it is beautiful and so strong, but have only progressed to the level that I can make a reasonable 2 and a quarter inch Genesee point. I like the styles of the local artifacts. Your thinning methods with isolated platforms have helped me the most. Thankyou!!

Jim just watched your newest set of vids on the Marty punch technique. Very cool. i could see the isolated platforms you set up pretty well even on internet video which is not always real high quality..i could see em good. so the reason you have three diff sizes of the punches is for different size flakes? i.e. bigger punch = bigger flake? to me that doesn't seem logical..for some reason to me it seems that the billet size, blow speed and size of platform would make as much or more difference than the punch size...i guess it is reallly the size of the notch on the punch?? just trying to grasp the concept.
don't know why but your vids there reminded me of swoose's forked stick, kind of the same concept, except there he tapped the actual biface and not another piece of antler.At any rate great set of videos!

I have watched you and admire your work !!!!!! I have found a few arrows points over the years and always wanted to be able to do that and now mostly because of your videos and talking on the net to a few knappers I can make a serviceable point out of glass and obsidion.Thanks for posting!!!!!!!!!

Paleoman----
Since finding your videos my efforts have steadily improved. I appreciate your method of talking through what you are doing. Very clear
and easy to understand. Since starting to learn knapping now that I'm retired my efforts have evolved but still have difficulty thinning a bi-face
and avoiding step fractures and hinges. I've watched your videos many times and each time I learn new things. Every piece of stone teaches me
more and each time I watch a video I am better able to understand what I see you doing. Recently, I have finally succeeded in undercutting step
fractures and avoiding hinges. Starting out with copper I've recently gotten into ABO tools. It amazes me how antler flakers will run longer flakes.
One of my favorite videos in watching you work with hammer stones. Although my accuracy is better I still break points by missing the platform
slightly. I look forward to watching new videos.
Many thanks.
Regards,
