Woodworking tools in your BOB

Recommended Posts

I'm a maintainance guy by trade-I fix things-so I probabley carry more tools than most.I recently got a lenox try fold saw:it uses sawzall blades,so gives me quite a bit of cutting ability.I am in the process of making my own "hammer/hatchet/prybar" type tool(haven't been able to find 1 that I like).I also carry a small amount of hardware in a ziplock.Never can tell when you'll need a nail or two.

I am starting to agree with you wally, i think i could manage with two woodworking tools. I already have a Gransfors hatchet

So i could do a lot with that. But for the finer work im going to need tools with a hook for making a concave section in the wood. Like the tool mentioned above.

EDC has a multi tool,8"adj wrench,1/2"chisel,good 2 blade pocket knife. also carry a cut down xacto in my firstaid kit along with a small assortment of blades. In my EOTWAWKI stash I have woodworking tools that would let me make about anything-otherwise I could stoke up the forge and make a tool for the job.

Since you cannot carry all of the tools which you may need, just figure out which tools you might need to manufacture the tools which you need. If you want to make a bowl cutting tool you might need something to cut a piece of steel, sharpen it and hold in the fire to temper or bend it into the config. you need. ie: long pliers, files and stones for sharpening. Of course, tools are heavy. Use what you have at hand. Save the weight for something which may save your life.

I have a 3/4 and 1" auger bit and crank handle and a 1/2" chisel for GOOD gear these would be great for simple pin and dowel and peg framing. And won't take much room and don't add that much weight. for a BOB I would say maybe a auger and T bar holder if you really think that you will be building a wood frame. But more is a little over the BOB idea in my way of thinking.

I also have a draw knife as well in GOOD gear they are really useful, this really does get me thinking again on the basic hand tools that I have, a few mattocks, axes and hatchets, 2 1/2lb sledge on 16" handle, crosscut saw, large draw plane, a hand saw, I have been trying to get a few rounded up as I can. My BOL being the ole farm has every hand tool I would need to go back to living a 1900 existence, they have been there since they were hung up as they were replaced by modern tools, and my dad made sure I knew how to use them all when I was a kid,before I could use power tools I had "to prove that I could use a hand tool without losing a limb first"

because we are in the present day finding lumber, nails wire etc may not be a problem

I like the fencing pliers idea
few chisels and steel ones also
hatchet with a hammer head or a hammer the claw of a claw hammer makes great fire starter if dry or is full of rosin
shark saw very short stanley brand or a bow saw
shovel I like the Glock brand
vice grips
multitool usually has an awl for drilling holes or you can find a set of gimlets  old tech but great for drilling holes.

    • This is a great inspiring article. I am pretty much pleased with your good work. You put really very helpful information.
       
    • here is the survival coupons codes to get a amazing material of survival struggling 
    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
