    If you had bothered to read my entire post before rushing to make your ignorant sarcastic comments you might have seen that I have a variety of manual sawing and wood chopping tools. Your next ignorant assumption was that I said I was completely self sufficient. Get a pair of glasses and try reading the first sentence of that post again. Although my batteries have a rated lifespan of 20 years I could replace or restore them. Go whittle yourself a brain and look that up.If you want to keep wasting your time with this guys ridiculous Instructables, I couldn't care less. I'm done wasting my time here and I already blocked the notifications from getting to my email.

    I am far more self sufficient than most people but with that comes the understanding that being self sufficient is labor intensive and time consuming. Success in that depends on knowing how and when to improvise and when to plan ahead and prepare. Failure to plan ahead and prepare will result in someone having to improvise so many different things that they will not succeed. I have several different types of sawing and wood chopping tools. If somehow they should all fail, I still know how to make a decent stone axe. The stone axe would however be my last option because I have planned ahead and prepared. This is also the reason I have an electric chain and pole saw. I have enough solar panels and batteries to run both those plus a lot more. Of course I have been doing this since the 1960...see more »I am far more self sufficient than most people but with that comes the understanding that being self sufficient is labor intensive and time consuming.

Of course I have been doing this since the 1960's so I have had plenty of time to plan, prepare, gain skills and test them.
