      Yeah handmade tools can be brittle. It is very boring to make lots of twine so if you have rough hands and persistence already, it might be easier to go a simple route. My soft programmer hands would make twine because I have more patience than callouses.

      @Rolando Manuel Primitive just means being a part of the early stages of something's development. His technology is primitive because he's starting from scratch, going into the woods and making shelter and tools and agriculture using his bare hands and any natural thing he can find. He does have the advantage of not needing to worry about survival, and already knowing a lot about the laws of physics, but he ultimately shows how much you can do in a natural environment with some creativity and experience. That's what I always think when I watch these videos: "Primitive people must have been so much more creative than modern people. They must have been so much stronger and smarter to have survived out there when I wouldn't last 3 days."

    I had a "wilderness survival" class I took in college, and I'm now seeing why no one could get the cord drills to work and the instructors even brought lighters along to use instead- there was no fly wheel! We had to work in teams of two just to get the spindle to not fly out of the notch, and even then it was hard to keep it from doing that. My soft hands thank you for this video.

    Primitive Technology: thank you for this lovely video!
    By way of giving back, may I suggest using a drop spindle to spin your fibres into cordage? I think the technology would be congruent with the technology that you’re using there now, so if you were a purist when it comes to. Technology, I think you’ll be OK. You just take a wooden disk of some 2-3”, and put a wooden dowel of about 6” through it. Rounding the lower tip would be optional. Take a Fairly short length of hand - spun cordage to affixed to the spindle just above the fly wheel, and you can just spin your cordage from the suspended spindle. I’ve used just such a rig myself many times, and it works like a charm. Not only can you spin your cordage up watch more rapidly, but it saves a lot of the wear and tear from the repetitive motion of your wrists and fingers.
    Thanks again!

      @Wither Fang136 actually no look up the rebuild of the antikythera mechanism. Most "native americans" used "bow" drills. judging by the amounts of holding stones laying around the great plains. Honestly and this isn't any slight of any cultures the technological gap between the meso americans and the northern peoples was broad but not as broad as the gap between the america's and places like Australia and the asia/ mediteranian / north african/ India / european continents. Meso america was about equal to the ancient egyptians in development only about 4500 years later. Given they hadn't had the exposure to trade from far away cultures like those on the land connected parts and lacking beasts of burden this was understandable. The "Great Plains" was fairly unsettled because of 2 very important factors low access to agriculture and the weight of housing. A plains Teepee weighs about 900 pds. without the horse and its widespread use by north americans most of the "plains peoples" were tied to the river systems. Lacking the domesticated animals agriculture was man powered meaning the lack of "free time" and spare food needed to support an artesian class in the population. Had the Americas remained in isolation its development would have continued although still slower than the rest of the world because of the lack of anything larger and stronger than a llama. Likely the rivercraft and watercraft would have seen an amazing jump as metalwork was expanded but agriculture wouldn't have without an animal as strong as an ox. The native america's developement wasn't hampered by anything they did nor were they lacking anything different than any other peoples except 2 very key things in civilization draught animals and the free time they provide. Eventually Llamas may have led to the development of wheeled transport and very small plows but their only able to haul around 80pds tops. A mini horse can draw about 200 pds. A single draft 8000pds. Basically the visual would be farming and equipment from 1910 vrs 2021.

    I think it would just be amazing that you kept going producing better and better tools to a point where you are able to pan a stream or river for magnetite or "black sand" then smelt it with your charcoal and furnace into iron like the Japanese did for Tamahagane... then make IRION TOOLS o_o *mindblow*

      @rekttt _ i know! Its so exciting, he took my idea of making Iron from magnetite and is finally doing it! :D
      My next suggestion for him is to make that iron into a hammer and tongs and start blacksmithing. He can use a hard stone for an anvil for some time but eventually he might be able to cast an anvil too. Then after he has a working blacksmith then he can learn tempering and blade folding and make bladded tools and weapons. Then eventually hand cannons!

    If it's winter and you can't find any leaves for making fire you can always use a sharp rock with just some wood. Cut the wood as small as possible and you have a combustion(A little bit harder but it works for situation where you don't have any combustible materials besides wood)

      @Aymotin Montesegur​​ "Or as a sort of necklace to show off your skill and attract females in the vicinity."

      +lollypopalopicus The stone spindle isn't the most convenient thing to carry around, which makes it more of a tool for your permanent shelter. A bow drill, hand drill or flint is the more carry-everywhere option. However, when travelling it isn't necessary to carry the stone spindle as a bulky piece, you can remove the stick and carry the stone and the cord (which contain the most labour-cost of making) rather conveniently as seperate pieces....or as a sort of necklace to show off your skill and attract females in the vicinity.

    • lollypopalopicus
      lollypopalopicus Hace 7 años

      @Videlli Perhaps, but it could be come unwieldy if it has to much weight, making it tiring to use for long periods, and more difficult to carry. Plus, the extra strain the rope would be under to stop it each spin would wear at it faster. Then again, I am not an expert, so I can't claim that with 100% certainty.

    We actually used the same type of tool to drill holes on jewelry. It's actually dangerous to use as it sometimes jumps and the drill lands on our fingers lol. I'm glad we upgraded decades ago to electric drills cause I don't think my fingers will last with such a tool.

    • Gravewolf
      Gravewolf Hace 6 meses

      @TheBBQify It's a pain in the ass or fingers to use. I've been pierced so many times in the nails and fingers when it jumps. Yes innovation is necessary to make work faster and better. I've even adapted to 3d modelling and printing to create jewelry and it's also much better than wax sculpting as if you make a mistake in casting you have to redo the wax sculpt. At least in 3d printing you just print the file again if you mess up the casting.

    What I love about this channel is that it shows ancient people were not "primitive" in the sense of stupid. They were extremely intelligent, and made the best use of what was available to them at the time. People speak of cavemen as if they were different from us, but 10,000 years is not even a blink of an evolutionary eye. They were exactly the same as us. Respect to the maker of this video for showing how it may have looked to survive in a world before modern conveniences.

      @varsam Yep, not only lazy harming the environment too. Billion dollar junk food industries are using dozens of water instead of giving the all water to people. That's why water scarcity occurs. Goverment sucks when they allow these Companies to use water. Drink natural water which has minerals instead of mixing it with chemicals which us bad for health. Use water for good purpose like creating a medicine.

    What kind of rock did you use for the first drill? Does it matter what kind of rock you use? I've tried sandstone because I live in a coastal area in SE NSW and it shatters before I can peck a good hole in it.

      +Primitive Technology This is very cool, thanks for sharing that with me! It sounds like it is a pretty hard wood if it gave your celt a run for its money. It makes me a little said inside thinking about your chipped blade...glad you could rework it! Bow making is a constant learning process because every wood species has it's own personality. Once you get use to following a few basic bow principles, you will be able to coax more and more staves into nice shooting tools. Have fun with it and don't let some broken ones discourage you. Having said that, you should be able to get a decent amount of draw length out of a 1.5 m long bow. If you make a bend through the handle bow, you can maximize that bows bending potential. You have good thickness to work with at 5 cm. I am a big believer in allowing the wood to fully harden before finishing. It would be really interesting to see a string made from bark....I imagine you have some really tough bark down your way! Sounds like a lot of fun stuff. I hope you find your bow project to be very rewarding!...Keep me posted!....Ben
