| Classic, must see for any young man
I remember watching this in the 1980's at the beginning of the shop class semester. The animation is well done, the information is still accurate and instructional.

Every boy should see this film, as should anyone who might one day use a tool.

The usefulness of the ABC of Handtools isn't just to mechanics or professional handymen. This film will help illustrate why you should use hand tools in a specific fashion, and why you should avoid certain types of common abuse (i.e. hammering on a wrench, or which type of screwdriver you can use a wrench on). They don't teach this in schools anymore.
