Farm Workshop Practices C 1939

Postby D_Loki » Mon Jan 04, 2010 3:41 am

Thats right Homesteaders!! I am at it again with another classic. "Farm Workshop Practices C 1939" This book is probably 90% free of power tools, and the "how-to" for so many projects your jaw will drop as soon as you go through the table of contents. Classic Carpentry, tool care, use, and repair, implement repair, leather and tack repair....I could go on but just check it out. This one you might actually print out so you have hard copy.

I know because that would totally blow - the electricity goes out for weeks and you go to fix or make something and you remember - Hah - wasn't that manual from 1939 telling me how to do this. Then you go sit in your old computer chair and stare longingly at the screen. tap the enter button once or twice for old times sake....

If it is this good - print it!
Good one Loki

Oh so Loki - I read much of the PDF last night and it is really good. Sadly I think the old family who built and worked on our house for 5 generations never read this. We don't have a square corner or wall let alone a single level floor in our house. When I wrestle the printer away from the kids I think I am going to print it today. I think I will also make a list of all the tools he used, compare it to what we already have ( cross cut saw, planes, hand drill) and see what we need to go power less. Thanks a zillion. I also think it woul dbe fun to use this to entertain my non horsey 8 yo. He and i can find scrap lumber adn he can use the hand tools to build something over the winter. New Birdfeeder or laying boxes perhaps??

And Kymber YOU ROCK at sucking up! You go girl!

Kymber,

Flattery will keep me posting, but simple appreciation will get me posting more. As for buttering me up, well I think that's solely up to our respective spouses if thats going to be allowed LMMFAO

No way I am not going to post one of my favorite quotes to this topic. You may have seen it before-- I post it every chance I get-- but it's worth it, IMHO.

With the increased mechanization of farms, it has become necessary for the successful modern farmer to be proficient in the use, repair, and maintenance of mechanical equipment of various kinds. ... Although the farmer needs to be an unspecialized mechanic, rather than specialized mechanic, he should nevertheless be a good one. He should be thorough and systematic. Slovenly or slipshod methods have no more place on the farm than in other business or occupations. Machinery that works well, gates that open and shut easily, and buildings and fences that are orderly and in good repair not only save time and money for the farmer, but contribute to morale and the pride of ownership.

no you don't Empress. Just follow the link and click, you may have to wait for 30 second for the d/l to start, and if you have already downloaded a file from Hotfile, you may need to wait for a period of time until you can do the next d/l. You only need to sign up to upload files for other people.

a year in the Life of the world wide web changes a lot.. I just Bought the Book Makeshift Workshop Skills on Amazon.. Has just shipped and when I get it I'll post a review in the books area in forums..
Looks like what I need..

Makeshift Workshop Skills For Survival and Self-Reliance
Expedient Ways to Make Your Own Tools, Do Your Own Repairs and Construct Useful Things Out of Raw and Salvaged Materials
by James Ballou, with a foreward by Charlie Richie, Backwoodsman magazine

In today's high-tech society, even the most advanced devices and systems are not failsafe. Tools can break or wear out, batteries can go dead, and all sorts of malfunctions can render the modern conveniences we rely on totally useless. If quick replacements of failed items are not readily available, the ability to improvise and adapt in the workshop suddenly becomes very practical.

James Ballou, author of the best-selling Long-Term Survival in the Coming Dark Age, dramatically expands on the popular home workshop material in his first book to present a "makeshifter's" way of building and repairing things with only a pile of raw or salvaged materials, your hands and your mind. In this fascinating new book, he presents a wide range of unconventional, remarkably creative home workshop skills, including:

• HOMEMADE TOOLS—Make your own hammers, drills, screwdrivers, wrenches, pliers, saws, files, chisels, vises, clamps . . .

• EXPEDIENT REPAIRS—Perform sturdy repairs with ordinary glue, tape, cord, wire, dowels, nuts and bolts . . .

• MAKESHIFT CONSTRUCTION—Construct all sorts of functional items out of coat hangers, old car parts, 2 x 4s, wooden dowels, nails, rebar, coffee cans . . .

• USEFUL PROJECTS—Build a homemade forge out of an old barbeque; handle simple soldering jobs with a road flare; perform quick weld repairs with car batteries, jumper cables, and a pair of pliers . . .

Ballou also gives extensive instruction in makeshift metalworking, practical calculating skills, resourceful salvaging, plus dozens of practical tips for the craftsman or handyman who might need this information in an emergency or who simply enjoys learning about alternative ways to handle home workshop projects.

As far back as James Ballou can remember, his interests have included survival activities — hunting, fishing, exploring, treasure hunting, backpacking, shooting, making and using tools, and just plain improvising. The author of dozens of magazine articles on various subjects, he also served four years in the U.S. Army as a paratrooper with the 82nd Airborne Division.

There is a podcast about this at: Scroll down.. The Paladin Podcast, Episode 12: James Ballou

you've got that right.. We have lost so many skills that our ancestors had.. I would love to just learn and learn as many old time skills as I can. Like what did they do before machines made life so easy? Don't get me wrong! I love my Puter! I need to find out ways to do without power and still make it..
