Sometimes the most basic hand tools can be intimidating if you have never been taught how to use them. And sometimes the most complicated can be simple to use because you had someone show you how. The truth is, tools are supposed to make our lives easier and it is a shame when we don’t use them out of fear or intimidation. I will admit that there have been times in my life where I didn’t use a tool that would have made life much easier because I was intimidated by it when I shouldn’t have been. In my defense, I didn’t have YouTube to show me how to do just about anything on the planet.
Thankfully, the world does have YouTube now and that means that there are great videos available like this one from Eastwood, that show you how to use tools the right way. This makes it incredibly easy to get up to speed with a tool like a Tap and Die set that might be intimidating otherwise. And like the video shows, some simple material is all you need to practice with before moving on to the stuff that actually matters.
This is just one of the videos you’ll find at Eastwood that show you how to use tools effectively. Watch them and learn and be inspired.
