IF you try the hand crank, be sure and hold the thumb against that first finger. That way if it backfires the handle slides out of your hand rather than trying to take your thumb off. In other words, lay your hand on the crank handle and wrap your fingers down and around. DO NOT PUT YOUR THUMB UNDER THE CRANK HANDLE.
