  2. dear friend, KSB was a common tool in Europe until say 1970-80. Nowdays in Europe manpower costs more then electricity. You could hear the cry of the sharpener and of the umbrella-repairer in your street at intervals. I presume in Africa you don’t need so much umbrella repairing.
    Anyway it seems that your technology is only a 30 years behind us, run baby run.
