  • Get 'er done with Ronnie. Today, we're going to talk about these things called "tools".

  • Now, "tools" have many different meanings. But what I'm going to teach you today is something

  • that you would find in a hardware store. These are things to help you if something is broken

  • or if you need to build something. If you want to build something in your house, if

  • you want to tear down a wall and put up a new wall -- maybe you just want to change

  • the color of your room. Maybe you just want to paint your room. So I'm going to help you

  • go through some vocabulary about tools. I can't resist the drill sound. It's like going

  • to the dentist. This is not the dentist.

  • So as I told you -- at the beginning of this, I said, "Get 'er done". Why is Ronnie speaking

  • in a strange Alabamian accent from America? It's a joke. "Get 'er done" is an expression

  • that people use to mean, "Go do something. Do it well. Get 'er done." It sounds very

  • American, so yay. "Get 'er done." We've picked it up in Canada. Maybe you will hear people

  • say it when they're drinking. "Get 'er done!" I don't know. We're crazy here, all of us.

  • The most common kind of tool that people use will be something like this. This is a hammer.

  • It makes that kind of noise. This is actually a rubber mallet, but Ronnie doesn't have a

  • lot of supplies. She makes do with what she has. So a "rubber mallet" or "hammer" is for

  • something like a nail. So a "nail" looks like this. And what you do is you -- you hammer

  • the nail into something. Be careful you don't hammer your thumb. I've done this before.

  • Hammering the thumb is very painful. "Hammer" is a noun and also a verb. Okay? So I can

  • say, "I hammer in the nails." So I take my hammer, and I smash the nails into my wrist.

  • Not a good idea. Please be careful when you're using these things. They just might bonk you

  • in the head.

  • The next one we have is -- it's not a drink of vodka and orange juice, unfortunately,

  • ladies and gentlemen. It is a "screwdriver". Now, my screwdriver was very expensive. I

  • did get it from the dollar store, which is another place where you can get these tools.

  • Each screwdriver has a different head. Okay. So unfortunately, I do not know the names

  • of the different heads of the screwdriver. I do know that this one is called a "flat"

  • head because it's flat. And I do believe that the one that looks like a star is called a

  • "Phillips", but don't quote me on that because I just kind of guess and hope that they fit

  • in. And if all else fails, just hammer it in. That's the thing. So with a screwdriver,

  • what you're going to do is you're going to take this thing called a "screw" -- that also

  • means something different. So you're going to screw in the screw with a screwdriver.

  • English is so repetitive. Okay. So one more time. So you're going to screw in the screw

  • with a screwdriver. This one you've to twist a lot. It hurts your wrist. If you screw too

  • much, you can hurt your wrist and do other things.

  • The next one we have is a "wrench". A "wrench" could look like this. This is a very big example

  • of a wrench. I also have a tiny wrench. So this part, what's going to happen is you're

  • going to take something like this. Now, this, I believe, is called a "bolt". Okay? So we

  • have these things called "nuts" and "bolts" -- I know what you're thinking about "nuts".

  • Not those kind. "Nuts" are something that go around the bolt, and they position the

  • nut and the bolt so it doesn't move. So what's going to happen is I'm going to use my wrench,

  • and I'm going to put the bolt -- or screw the bolt into the wall. Or I can unscrew the

  • bolt, and I can take it out. If you have a bicycle -- I have a bicycle. I love my bicycle.

  • Sometimes, you need to do repairs on your bicycle. Sometimes, you can use a wrench.

  • Also with the other end of the wrench, there's a "hacksaw" -- not a "hacksaw". I'm sorry.

  • A "hex". And you can crank it and take it off.

  • One thing that would've been useful a couple of weeks ago when my friend's chain fell off

  • and we had to change a tire would've been one of these. This is called an "Allen key"

  • or "hex key". So it basically fits in the point of something and turns it. So if you

  • have a bicycle, this is a very important tool. Ronnie needs to bring this with her every

  • day because Ronnie's a bit of a klutz. That means she breaks things a lot. So an Allen

  • key will help you undo things.

  • We also have this word "pliers". These are pliers. I have a story about pliers. I was

  • a wee girl. I think I was probably maybe a five-year-old. My front tooth was wiggly.

  • That means it was ready to come out. So it would not fall out. So my mother did what

  • she knows to do. She took a string and tied it around my tooth, tied the other part of

  • the string to a door and slammed the door. My tooth didn't come out. So here I was with

  • one wiggly tooth. Well, my father, he's quite smart. He took a nice set of pliers. He put

  • a Kleenex or a tissue here, and she just gently yanked my tooth out. So I was left with one

  • front tooth missing. True story. Pliers are not recommended for yanking out teeth. Don't

  • do that unless you want to. Pliers are good for things like a nail that you can't get

  • out of the wall. You could pull it out. It's basically used for pulling things out. Again

  • -- not teeth. Shouldn't have told you that story. So let's say that I have a nail in

  • the wall that won't come out. I can put the pliers here and pull it out. Yay. Success.

  • What else do we have here? This thing. One of my favorites. This is a "drill". The purpose

  • of a drill -- and the all-important "drill bit" -- this will go in here. I'm not going

  • to turn it on with this because it will fly in my eye. A "drill" is something that's going

  • to make a hole in the wall. So "drill" is the machine like this, and the "drill bit"

  • is the actual thing that's going to make a hole. So the drill bit attaches to the drill,

  • and this is used to make a hole. Okay?

  • Pliers, I told you, are used to pull things out of the wall, not your mouth. And an Allen

  • key or a hex key are really good if you have a bicycle or if you have to undo something

  • or take something apart.

  • Hammer -- you can put things up with a hammer, or you can screw something into the wall.

  • And a wrench, again, is for fastening things. Fascinating, I know.

  • Let's go back to some home decorating. Whew! Let that dust fly. So this thing, this beautiful

  • thing, it's called a "paintbrush". Two-piece brush set right there. So if I wanted to paint

  • the white board, I could change the color of it. One thing to be careful about is this

  • is not for your hair or your face, okay? It's usually only for the wall. Sometimes, you've

  • a large wall that you want to paint. This could take hours. What? What? We have this

  • thing. It's missing one thing, but this is called a "roller brush". Right here. So this

  • is a paintbrush, and this is a "roller" or a "roller brush". You get a spongy bit around

  • here, you dip it in the paint, and then you roll it. Rolling, rolling, rolling. It covers

  • more area than this. So this would paint this much, and this would paint this much. These

  • are fun. These are really fun. I suggest you go and buy one of these and just paint your

  • house. Go do it now.

  • If you are building something or -- like I said, you knocked down the wall -- you want

  • to make sure that what you've done is level or straight. So you want something to be like

  • this, not like this. This beautiful piece of equipment -- or this "tool" -- is called

  • a "level". I don't know if you can see, but in the middle of this, there is a bubble.

  • And the way that you line this up is if the bubble is in between the two lines here, it

  • means your piece of equipment is level. We're level. We're level. We're level EngVid. So

  • I may not be level. I may be a bit off-the-wall. If you need help fixing something, I suggest

  • you call in a professional. If you want to give it a try yourself, good luck. Be safe.

  • Go to the hardware store. Go to the dollar store and sometimes at the supermarket. You

  • can find all of these tools.

  • One thing that's one of my favorite ones, too, is measuring tape. It looks like this.

  • So you can measure things. You can measure anything you want. The possibilities are endless

  • out there, ladies and gentlemen. So let's say that something was six inches -- you could

  • measure that. Maybe something is seven or eight inches. You could measure that. Anything

  • that has a length or width, you can measure. In Canada, we usually measure things in feet.

  • There are different levels on this. It has feet and inches. Sometimes, they have centimeters;

  • sometimes, they have millimeters. It depends on what you use in your country.

  • So homework: Everyone measure something. Write me in the comments, and tell me how long it

  • is. Good-bye.

Get 'er done with Ronnie. Today, we're going to talk about these things called "tools".
