EMP, no electricty, etc

Postby idahobeef » Mon Aug 28, 2017 2:29 am

So I was reading some post-EMP books (CME) and thought about the survivors situation. I think some of the most unique things I read about in these articles is trading non-electical doo-dads. My guess is that they would be things like hand-held bleach makers and items from this brilliant guy:

I loved his handpowered pop can torch, mini fume extractor, mini-sander, smal generator, and water pump. Check him out, he has great ideas!

all well and good - but for practicality, try actually prepping with reliable equipment and tools - that's what the basic premise of prepping is - ready with the correct answer to the SHTF problem - being able to improvise is a great prepper tool to have in your personal toolbox - but half azzing critical survival isn't ...

Try a local supplier to the Amish.

Lehman's advertises themselves as such. They got their roots as a hardware store in Ohio's Amish country but it's more of a tourist attraction now. Hand crank wash tub with wringer, soap making supplies, oil lamps, to name a few.

I was down there over 4th of July. Lots of really dumb looks on people's faces. Kinda the same dumb looks at the Mennonite bulk store.

I buy antique tools and used non-electric kitchen implements when I can get them inexpensively. Lanterns, hand saws, bits and braces, can openers, hand mixers, and grinders are examples.
