Hi, I have a well and a Baker hand water pump.  Same ones as the olden days.  A strong man could probably be okay pumping it by hand but it is too much for me since my well is a little deep and therefore it is heavy.  But a bike connected and/or animal device for my animals to do the work would be easy enough.  It is my only source of water and the animals use the most of it.

Thanks.  I'm hoping to use a windmill in the future but costs are prohibiting me right now.  I desperately need a non fossil fuel, non electric way to do it for now until I can get a windmill and I will also keep the set up as a back up for when the wind may not be as abundant and the tanks run out.

Hello,
Not sure the best place to post this.  Does anyone have experience or knowledge of using oxen, cattle, horses, etc for working and in particular does anyone have information on using them to walk around to make pumps etc to work for example to make a water hand pump work?  Also, using a fly wheel and bike type apparatus would be another example to get a water pump to work that I would also need help with.

Need help with information on what parts to get, how to build it, or someone who can actually come to my property and help out with this.  No Amish in the area so can't ask them.

Thanks

Hi,
Seeking a male who would be interested in running a small homestead together.  All organic/permaculture property in the mountains in VA.  Would be just friends or business partners and see how we get along.  Would need to enjoy living off grid and a natural basic lifestyle.  No electricity, phone, or computer on the property.  I don't smoke, drink alcohol, do drugs, or swear and believe in a Biblical lifestyle.  Someone who likes to do work the old fashion way or by hand would be great.  If interested, you can email me at mustobeyacts2_38@yahoo.com and we could talk more.

Please email to mustobeyacts2_38@yahoo.com and also copy to torchof@gmail.com

Sorry but I have severe sensitivities to mold, chemicals, and EMFs so no cell phones or wireless devices and no smoking, chemicals/perfumes.  I do all organic and am off grid.  It is like upgraded camping right now but have lots of projects that you could help out with like fencing, haybailing, installing a water windmill and tank, making a hay shack, and building small cabins, etc.  I'd like to build some rocket mass heaters or small masonry heaters if anyone has experience with this.  We can chat about it if you email and then I could call from a friend's phone.  I'm not online often but my son can let me know when I get an email.  That is why two email addresses are listed above.

I currently don't have an extra cabin or garden yet or I'd offer more but once these things are complete, I will be able to offer more.  I do have free organic eggs available from the chickens.  Thanks.

What brand or type of epoxy is used for the threaded rod in the stone?  Is there a non-toxic one I can use?  Does concrete or silicone not work to hold the rod and to keep water out?

Also, does anyone know where stainless steel threaded rods can be purchased at about 2 -2.5 feet long?  Can basalt rebar be used instead of metal threaded rods?

Thanks.
Is placing a 3/4" threaded rod a foot deep into the stone good enough?
What type of tool and bit does one use to drill a 3/4" hole in stone about a foot down?  I searched for diamond bits but they say they only go up to 2" down.  What type of tool can I use that will do it on a faster scale or at least go down a foot?  Any suggestions?

Thanks.
