Many technicians know the difference between standard and Phillips screwdrivers. They know Allen wrenches from crescent wrenches. This book explains those tools' origins, history and the best and safest way to properly use them. Author Thomas Dutton wrote the book not only to teach technicians how to properly and safely use hand tools of all varieties from screwdrivers to files, but also to pass along tidbits of history — the early use of tools, for instance - as well as to tell how and why a particular tool gets used today.
