  4. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Seems like a lot of improvisation would be needed after SHTF, and I imagine nuts and bolts and threads might have to be cut. --Is this tool set a good idea to get? --With most things I seem to get what I pay for. Are T&D sets no exception? I've seen sets up to $150, will I know where that extra...

    Updated this thread and title due to the addition of bragging posts regarding some awesome Esee items I ordered from Oldwarrior64's website "Paracord Gear Store LLC", kinda showing it off/bragging! Also: Ladies and gents, just a reminder that we have an Esee social group here on Survivalist...

    I have been working on this ax on and off for a while, I based it off a viking style "Boarding Ax" Cut out with a plasma cutter I used scraps of 1/4" steel left over after up- armoring MTVR's and I believe r234 round bar for the handle, I mainly use it for demolition and it has smashed...

  12. DIY - Do It Yourself
    After learning so much from thse boards I thought I would share, and also hopefully learn, some things about tool buying. I am a shade tree mechanic, former Seabee Builder and tool collector (why does my wife use the word "Hoarder instead"?). Right now is a great time to buy tools...
  13. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    A friend and I were talking earlier today and I found out he didn't have any tools on his list of items to take to his BOL. I told him he was crazy and he better add them to the list! I understand having very few in a BOB, but if you plan on bugging in or driving to a BOL they are a must. I...
  14. Australia and New Zealand
    I have been reading the American thread on tools for survival, & it seems to me that lots of people are being very unrealistic in their prepping. Or maybe it is just that Australia is different & therefore we think differently because our geography is different. I have been told time & time...

  16. Firearms General Discussion
    Hello all. I think it would be interesting to see what spare parts you have for repair/maintenence of your firearm of choice... also, if there are any tools particular to that firearm. This might be a good resource for someone looking at a particular model for a post-shtf (or whatever) firearm...
  17. Wilderness Survival, Hiking and Camping Forum
    Looking at my tools, I think about how I'd love to be able to take a lot of it with me if I have to GOOD, but that's not reasonable. So, I decided to keep a "build civilization from scratch" tool kit to keep in my truck. At the very least, if I had my vehicle with me, I can build shelter and...

    Hello everyone. I broke my hammer the other day and have decided to buy an estwing rip hammer, witch is available with a leather or shock absorbing grip. Witch would be a longer lasting grip for building/construction.
  19. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    I'm hoping this thread really takes off, because I would like to discuss blacksmithing with others who might be interested on this forum, whether you're an expert, novice or are just interested. In my opinion, blacksmithing is going to be one of the prime skills in a post EOTWAWKI world. It...
  20. Urban Survival
    This is my first thread, and its something I've been thinking about for a while. What are some places/items that might be overlooked after SHTF? Now I know some people are entirely against the thought of scavenging/looting, and I am the same, but only when its taking something from someone...
