what you have to think about is can you make every part of whatever youre using. for example, a thermometer. very simple device, glass tube with
some mercury. well, how do you make the glass to make the tube, then where do you find the mercury?
a musket uses black powder, easy to make if you have sulfur, bats, and charcoal. the lead bullet is easy to cast.

steam. (we really need to find a better way to do that)
