Did you download the book, did you read the book, did it resonate with you?
If yes YOUR MISSION is to keep a sharp eye out for old and still functioning tools.
You want scales. We want scales. Floor scales, hanging scales, really big ones if we can find them, they are invaluable (remember the formula for determining moisture content) plus if you want to start cooperatively buying they are totally necessary.
SOMEBODY FIND US A WORKING CIDER PRESS. We're going into business.
Ice tongs, ice picks, ice saws, it's time to bring back the ice houses.
Meat saws. Man oh man do those things come in handy when you can't plug in a sawzall.
Canning equipment is something you can still find in many thrift stores. Totally get set up with the EXTRA LARGE canning stuff and PRESSURE COOKERS. Again go large, big as you can find.
Score propane cookers, forget about your wimpy camp stove, look for the large burners that put out like 50,000 BTUs for large pots. Scale up your propane accessories.
Totally score grain mills and grinders. Plus there are hand driven tools for stuff like dekerneling corn from the cob and let's get started on farm equipment. We need horse-drawable plows and harrows and go-digs and combines and tractors and just about everything.
FIND THE OLD TOOLS, REFURBISH THEM AND DON'T SELL THEM TO PAWN STARS, PUT THESE TOOLS BACK INTO USE.
BRING THEM BACK TO LIFE SO THE PEOPLE CAN LEARN HOW TO USE THEM AND HAVE LIFE.
Be Tool Whisperers.
There is nothing strange about having a bar of soap in your right pocket, it's just what's happening.
