The ABC’s of Hand Tools

Back in the mid-1940s General Motors put out and Disney animated video on using hand tools.  It’s an easy to understand video that covers the correct and incorrect ways of using a multitude of hand tools.  Some of the tools covered are hammers, screwdrivers, saws, planes, files, chisels, and many more.  There was also a book put out under the same title.  The GM Heritage Center has made the book available for free in a pdf form.

You can find it here.


I highly recommend watching the video or at least looking through the book.  I think everyone could learn something from them.  Here’s the video on Youtube.
