Opinions Needed

I need your help / opinions.

I have decided to do a video about hand-tools: their proper use, care & restoration.

     So I need input...what tools, techniques do YOU think should be taught?  This is intended to pass old knowledge on to new beginners so most of you will learn little from it but your knowledge may be used & passed on. 

Things such as bending a ripsaw tip through its own handle to test the spring temper quality of the blade...."snapping" the wrist at the end of a hammer blow to achieve more power with less effort & how to restore an old hand-plane to new condition to be the basis of the videos.

SO PLEASE send in your recommendations and questions alike. They both are useful in moving towards making a video of this nature.

Thanks in advance :)
