Here is a photo with my daily used electric appliances and some hand used, which I know have electric equivalences.

Can we share what hand tools we find?

I think of only 2 that will always be electric:
- computer
- phone

But I don't see the point of electric citric juicers and mayonnaise can be done by hand.

I still have a small electric stove 500w for some heating up, and I daily use a distiller. How can I distillate with the sun? Is there a way to use a parabolic sun cooker? But then how do I get the water from the steam? (I will do a full topic, this is an example here)

What are the electric tools you think are needed to keep and how are you doing with your search of replacements?

I do not have a picture of it, but I have a cement mixer that has a spot on the large flywheel for adding a handle. This would allow it to be used my cranking by hand.

This may not seem like much, but I use my cememnt mixer for making potting soil, washing things in bulk, mixing paints, etc, so in short mostly stuff beyond just making cement.

All kidding aside, I do have a few of these cross-cutting saws.

My first bit of advice is that if you are going to be a mime, you shouldn't talk. Even the tiny ad is nodding:
