10 Non-Power Tools You Need for Survival
10 Non-Power Tools You Need for Survival
Governmental dependance makes for poor self reliance.

"What could possibly go wrong with a duct tape boat?"  Cody Lundin

The best defense against evil men are good men with violent skill sets.
I'm two short from the list. I don't have the hand drill and I don't have the grinding wheel. Have them both electric, but not manual.
I would include a draw knife, axe, splitting maul, and sledge hammer.
Don't have the manual grinder, but do have a few sharpening stones
I have them all except for the manual grinder. I would also add brace with bits and wood working tools. I would suggest getting older tools pre 1970's, i have found them to be made of better quality materials because they where designed to last, not designed to last for a limited time like most modern tools.

How many time have we bought items to have them crapout afew months after the warrenty exspires.
When I was a kid, all my dad had were manual tools. One day, he discovered an electric powered table saw.

When I went on a quest to obtain old fashioned manual tools, it was quite a challenge. Many companies had folded or even stopped making manual tools.

The hardest to find and most valuable are hand crank manual bench grinders.

So my morning project will be to find a manual bench grinder in the garage and measure the device to learn if I can obtain replacement stones.
A draw knife, adze and a chisel for the real old school builder/repair man/camper... As for the article, some of those tools could have been two-in-one types like a sledge/ axe head or a hammer/ hatchet, tools like that. All of those tools would be a load to carry around tho, you'd need a group to carry all that far off into the woods.
