Tools and Work Benches

Here are some non-power tools that are extremely useful to have and know how to use.  I am not against all power tools, and some I find almost indespensible (e.g., chainsaw, table saw, band saw, and drill press).  I find comfort in not being constrained by access to electricity and that I form a continuum with my ancestors of people who knew how to create what they needed to create a better life for themselves.bench3 bench2

  1. recently I watched a episode of Little house on the prairy(season 2 episode 9: The Camp-out) and at the beginning of the episode you see Charles working with a metal tool with 2 handels which he moves around; it seems to be some sort of drill; would you know more about this tool?
