The ABC of Hand Tools

Nothing Like a Disney cartoon to teach us about hand tools.

This is an educational film in two parts. Part one covers metal shop, and part two covers wood shop. Primitive Pete does everything wrong in both environments. He uses the tools incorrectly, allowing the narrator to correct him. It also features his female counterpart, who is constantly distracting him.
In this 1945 Disney cartoon we learn about Primitive Pete, Disney’s imagined inventor of the hammer. The film was made for mechanics in the Armed Forces, who, like Primitive Pete, might not employ the proper technique with their hand tools—hammers, pliers, wrenches, saws, and so on. So here’s 30 minutes of detailed instructions (for the most part, actually very practical and useful) on how to use hand tools. Don’t be a Primitive Pete! Learn about hand tools! Don’t abuse the peen end of a hammer! Be a civilized human, for a change!
