The Hand Crank is a primitive manual mechanical power generation device. Its use is necessary to produce the very first mechanical components needed for continuous mechanical power generation.
A Hand Crank must be placed to the side of or on top of of any mechanically-powered device that does not require continuous mechanical power. To use it, it must be right clicked, with each click producing only a small amount of power. This is very time- and food-intensive. For this reason the Hand Crank should not be used more than absolutely necessary - that is to get a Wind Mill up and running by grinding Hemp on the Mill Stone to produce 24 units of Fabric.
A Hand Crank cannot power Saws and other devices which require continuous mechanical power.
