  1. This is a very excellent video and all of your points can be applied to everyday life too. It's so nice to see genuine, good hearted people with integrity still. It seems like I am constantly surround by negative, selfish people.

  2. I started out with cheap tools mainly Menards. but I had a mowing service, lots of widows. I love wood working and you would be amazed that bardering for services. One day a client gave me a 9 ft working bench with over 1300 aqr ft of old heart pine flooring and most of her hubbies tools

  3. Great set of values and sentiment shown there, I applaud your wanting to pass these messages on, they are so important in these days of “celebrity” and people wanting instant / easy access to bright shiny things and a bright shiny lifestyle.

  4. One thing I have learned in doing business for many years. DO NOT wear sunglasses when talking to people. Especially older people. The old saying (the eyes are the window to the soul is very true. ) Just my 2 cents.

  5. Thank you for pointing this out . You are a wise young man . I have been this way all my life . I adapted the pass it on at a early age . Once you no longer need it . Whether it be you have out grown it or something to no longer use or perhaps have a new tool, past it on . I have tried to instill this in my nieces and nephews even my great nieces and nephews . Pass it on and pay it forward . It works for gou got pleasure from it and if you don't want or need it any longer allow someone else to have that same experience . And you are on point being honest truthful grateful and sincere goes a long ways . Pass it on and pay it forward . I don't believe you will ever truly regret it when you do .

  6. I just found your channel, and this was the first video. Your character and genuineness really shines through.
    I've got a one car garage full of stuff, but hope to someday have a nice big shop to bang around in. I subscribed, and am looking forward to learning from you.

  7. Inspirational thinking! Great to see a guy wirh integrity passing it on to a maker community. Hi from.the UK

  8. My Pal knew I liked tools, so he offered me his grandpa tools that he didn't want anymore for almost nothing.

  9. Great great vid. Being genuine is the number one thing on this video. Like you said ppl with pick up on that if your not. Plus ppl may not always want money, but can always use some of your help in return. Pass on your good fortune. First time on your Channel. First video I watched of yours. So you got a new subscriber, and I push the Bell

  10. Love your attitude Chris !!! Stumbled across your Youtube site (or whatever they call it) yesterday, and have watched a number of your videos already, with much interest and enjoyment… But beyond your knowledge and talent, THIS is what makes the difference – You truly SHARE your knowledge in a genuine, honest, and generous way. Thanks a million, and bless you!!! Cheers! Andrew

  11. I put up a sign in my local hardware shope that said "handjobs for tools" Have a full workshop now. It was hard work but payed almost nothing.

  12. Great tips! Another aspect of community is going to church. There's often great people there. Don't go to try and get stuff, but your passion will show and people will want to support that.
