There’s a kid in my class who slept to this in our class. He got yelled at but was still asleep, hope he’s doing good.

Problem is…… when Good Ol’ Pete attached that first rock to a wooden handle, it wasn’t for busting rocks! It was for survival by cracking skulls!

The double cut file is also called a bastard cut just so you know

Ian Morton says:

I'm 40 and this is an old cartoon but the tools are manly the same all those years ago and everyone has been a primativ peat lol

Frank B says:

I learned so much from this 75 year old program! Even in late 1980s shop class I didn't learn these things still relevant in today's world. Life may revolve around apps, but people still have homes that need maintenance, and unless you want to be at the mercy of today's contractors it's critical to know these things.
