What is your opinion on the Petrie granite core which was recently examined by C Dunn? He was allowed to take a moulding of it . The geometry of the striations do seem to show a spiral cut in one go. What does this tell you about tooling, tool sharpness, rigidity of the set-up used to cut it , and also downforce on the tool to achieve this?
Thought I’d ask you as Harte won’t address any sticky points, just likes to demand his adversary offer him full and final proofs of their viewpoint , without offering his own. Accuses those who oppose of him of exactly the same thing he does.
But you two can buddy up all you like, the fact that you are both sceptical at the outset destroys your ability and credibility to be balanced and open to new ideas.
Im just a guy who says “ hey, I know what these are as I see them all the time , each one is made by a different tool, wanna know how?”
I would rather listen to a machinist or engineer tell me about tooling than an archaeologist who isn’t a machinist or engineer.
I would rather listen to an Egyptologist regarding dynasties, kings and queens , heiroglyphs , culture than a machinist or engineer.

Sorry you're too whiny, trying to hard to be difficult and just not worth talking too

Whiny? If re-butting dogmatic ideas that don’t match forensic evidence is called that then I stand accused.

You pair are a joke. If my questions on engineering are too difficult for you I suggest you do some reading first. Try a book called “The Machinists Handbook” - standard reading for us. Might give you an insight into a) how things get made b) other ways the same thing can be made.
I answered both you and Harte’s questions, gave you other examples , and asked you questions in return that you both never really answer satisfactorily.
Deny Ignorance?
You pair have never looked so stupid when faced with tough questions on fabrication, differing techniques and possibilities regarding forensics.
Now we all know both your ‘ceiling’ when it comes down to concepts of how things are made .
Get back to the sand, dust and papyrus’ —us engineers and fabricators will work it out for you using the tool marks that you don’t understand, or don’t want to understand.

That's the pot calling calling the kettle black...hans you've been whiny for 15yrs...look at your post history.
you and harte are like 2 wandering Mormons pushing your dogmatic assertions....and if one does not agree with your assertions then the personal insults are delivered....
you and your mate seem to be against anything that's not sanctioned by orthodoxy ......
Orthodoxy and insults is all the H team are capable of....

why the hell are you preaching your stuff on a conspiratorial website where people are basically not interested in the orthodox point of view?
I think that you and you mate are flogging a dead horse...

As I stated previously, I have gone deeply into why you (and others) act this way in hundreds of previous posts. If you wish, i could expound on that aspect of your flawed personality once again.
a reply to: Harte
Pretty funny. The thing is, when we were talking about lathes regarding bowl turning, there is a specific reason why a lathe fits in with the execution of some of them.
If I have to explain to you again for the ‘nth time, as you don’t seem to understand , even though you claim to have used one:
A turning workpiece produces circular striations related to the centre of the piece. It also allows the easy cutting of CURVES inside ( like a bowl ) . Not achievable with a vertical drill. How many times do I have to explain to you how a lathe works when you claim to have used them???!!!!
For the record , the bowls with handles aren’t turned on a lathe as it would smash the handles off, so don’t lump me in there .
Internal work, curved work, work with circular striations related to a centre point is what I’m talking about. Like the strange ringed ‘plate’ I replicated for you .
You appear to disregard tooling forensics, that’s your personality disorder. It’s because you don’t know what they are though, so maybe not your fault .


Whatever.
Read here - chapter five of one of Stock's books.

Includes drawings made by copying various AE artworks that explicitly show how these vessels were made, and ends with a similar vessel made by Stocks - using the same method.
I'd point out that, although Stocks doesn't have 10 or 20 years experience making these vessels (like the AE craftsmen would have had,) he nevertheless creates a reasonable facsimile of the ancient vessels that have been found.

Obviously, you're not going to read this. It is another one of those things you prefer to think doesn't exist.

But maybe some others will, and realize how utterly vapid and empty your stupid claims are.

It’s amazing how you get away with not really responding to points made , just firing back new questions ! Great debating technique Harte clap clap.
As I stated above , the bowls with handles are not lathe made as the handles would be smashed off during turning. I never stated they were lathe made .
I haven’t seen Stocks replicate a granite bowl, only softer stone. Stocks research is to be commended, no doubt, but does have flaws .
I was talking about different methods of production.
Here is the object that shows lathe methodology.
This was not made using a stick with a sharp stone tied into it. The tools used here were smaller, more accurate.


The concentricity is magnetic to the eye , shows a centre point , circular striations , lathe finesse all relating to the centre point of the piece .
This piece I do not believe was created vertically as you claim.
So many variables for failure:
Not centring each ring accurately - almost impossible to do by eye . It never works believe me. Centres have to be dead on to produce work like this.
Downforce required may crack piece
Downforce may crack/break the ‘walled’ rings as the work progresses. Or even straight away.
I believe this piece was turned .
Every action on this object can be achieved on a simple lathe. Every one. With accuracy relating to the centre point as a given. AND it would chew through the material in a completely different way than vertical drilling, as the object turns, allowing for the finesse we see, curving, bowling, undercutting, flat surfaces and the ability to place a concentric ring wherever you please with ease.

Still waiting for you to address the other points I suggest regarding mass production techniques such as the cladding on GP and BP that I point out.
Still waiting for your response on large cutters/circular saws and the creation of RESULTANT edging seen on many squared artifacts not just in AE but South America .
The moulding of the Petrie core that does appear to show a consistent spiral cut
Maybe just start with the basics of Resultant edges for me , if the other points are too annoying for you?
I’ll find a link for The Machinists Handbook for you Harte, blow those machine shop cobwebs away, eh?

You propose that they had some sort of lathes, but never, ever reproduced one in any artwork, whereas they DID reproduce both kinds of saws AND the upright grinding I'm talking about. Lathes are so much more advanced than either of these other two cutting tools, and I suppose the AE's were too humble to brag about that?

I told you before, there is nothing at all on that piece that cannot be done with tube saws and grinding.

The concentricity is the only thing I find impressive in the piece, and that can be accomplished with proper fixturing and
jigs. Admittedly, neither of those things is shown in any artwork either.

a reply to: Harte
I know they used saws, grinding, little bow driven drills ( shows an understanding of the concept of rotational cutting, which leads on to other forms)
never have disputed it, they drew it.

The AE never showed in any drawings or stelae how they :
Lifted huge blocks from the bedrock of quarries
Built the pyramids
Prepared the site for building pyramids
Carved symmetrically perfect statue busts of Ramses in granite
Raised 90+ tonne granite blocks to the centre of GP and put them in place without breaking them.
Had the means to lift a 1000 tonne plus obelisk from the quarry, which they were surely intending to do.
Maybe too humble to brag about those incredible achievements too.

So much is still surmised and taken as given as to how they they accomplished just those few things that I could think of above .

Many of the AE bowls with handles of the type stocks had a crack at are not ‘true’ in a circular sense when you look at them. They are indeed beautiful pieces, but you can see inconsistencies in the hole at the top, the rims. They are circular ‘enough’ but not lathe circular.
The piece shown has a striking immediacy about how it’s circular features were created. I recognise it because with experience and time in a workshop you get your ‘eye’ in.
That piece sticks out like a sore thumb as we say here.

When I talk about lathes I’m not envisioning something I work on- engineering lathes .
And no, no crystal powered superconducting magnet AE motors either.
The torque required for basic hand powered lathes is achievable .
Making a spindle and even a rope-based chuck system is not beyond them.
You know, in my world, we have all sorts of speeds we use for different materials.
If you exclude the modern generation of 60 horsepower cnc milling machines and similar cnc lathes that turn at incredible speeds , most of the day to day cutting speeds are derived from probably around post WW2 times, maybe the 1950’s. They are still used today because they are efficient.
For example , you can turn hard steel quite easily at 300 rpm. Could go down to 200. Depends on size of workpiece too.
You could do it on any lathe at that speed, including belt driven lathes. All you need is a nice shape of cutting tool that will ‘hook’ into the material and you’re away. 300 rpm is perfectly achievable as a hand cranked speed

Still waiting for your thoughts on the Petrie core moulding , resultant edging ( this includes large disc cutting I suppose too) and repeatability of the bent pyramid casing stones .

Simple lathe, with turninga reply to: Harte

I think an AE version would have simpler Chuck with no need really to remove the piece to do the other side; could start with the bowl face, move to exterior bowl shape and face-off (chop off) the piece at its base, would all stay on one centre then.
but hey, the guy did it out of wood, made a wooden framed lathe ,not very fast rpm , and the wood frame withstood the considerable forces generated when turning .

Interesting eh?

Yes, it's cool.
But the AE's had nothing but sand to cut granite with. Don't see how you put that on a lathe cutting tool.

The scenes Stocks provides are of an artisanal stone worker's workshop, yet they only include the use of saws, pounders (pecking stones), rubbing stones and the upright grinders. Not the sort of place you would expect to see how they hauled heavy stone, though that IS depicted elsewhere, using ropes and sledges.

Forked sticks used in the artwork is what Stocks duplicated. If they had lathes, why would they use that forked stick grinder at all? You obviously know that not ALL AE vessels had handles, and even if they did, that wouldn't prevent them from cutting out the interior of the vessel with a lathe. Nor would the handles prevent them from cutting the exterior with a lathe and leaving a blank at the top for a craftsman to cut the two handles out of.

Makes no sense. Has to make some kind of sense or it's just daydreaming.

Besides, who would they brag to about that? Everyone in the area would have witnessed how a pyramid was built, but few went into these workshops.

a reply to: Harte

You know and I know that all workshops DON’T all have the same equipment, capabilities and capacity.
Some have tooling and machines that others don’t .
Even Petrie suspected the use of ‘ jewelled tools’ way back then.
The fact that on many pieces , a rotational tooling Mark appears that shows complete revolutions of the tool biting in to the material means nothing to you as you don’t know what that means .
I’ve never denied how some vessels were made , as I’ve stated , as a machinist, we embrace different methods, want to try them.
Of course, the standard view of AE tooling is that it didn’t evolve in the thousands of years their dynasties existed . Do you think they used the same methods for all that time and didn’t improve anything? Didn’t expand any concepts? They had the same brains as us , and look what they accomplished? No tooling development over time and no variations between workshops’ equipment? I really can’t buy that.
The plate object we discussed is far too accurate for vertical production as you state, shows clear signs of turning.
The circular tooling mark we see on it just outside of centre is what could be called a “pause point” where the craftsman stopped briefly before continuing; maybe to grip the tool better for the last bit of the turning to the centre, or for a split second ‘achy arm’ moment before continuing. That’s when those type of marks appear on a lathe, when the smooth uninterrupted form of cutting it employs, is interrupted briefly .
Weird as it looks on , admittedly ,not the best picture, the centre kind of looks hexagonal (hex) ?!
It’s very reminiscent of ways we have today of holding a piece using the centre too, to add strength so that the workpiece is pinned to the chuck by its centre to ensure perfect concentricity throughout.
For those who don’t know , you can use a lathe like the bowl guy on the video or you can add to that set up a ‘centre’ , on the piece pushed against the workpiece for strength. Usually used for accuracy or hard materials. When a centre at the front of a piece is employed , you probably double the capability of what you achieve on a lathe.

Still waiting to hear your opinions on large circular saws, the RESULTANT edging produced by this .
The Petrie core analysis apparently confirming a single spiralled cut , and manufacturing repeatability of the Bent Pyramid casing stones .

Aren’t we lucky that I don’t reply to you with “Whatever” to your posts as a reply ,(very scientific I must say ) and wish to keep healthy debate open, even if the tooling side is a little difficult for you?

Tiwanaku art was highly stylized, much like what we're accustomed to seeing from the Maya or the Aztecs. It's actually the heads of two crested Andean Condors facing each other neck to neck, and their necks and crests constitute what some have compared to the tusks and ears of an elephant's face. The image of the toxodon is known only from rough sketches of a sculpture discovered in 1934, and so it's a drawing of indirect evidence of an artist's interpretation of an unknown subject. It looks to me like a generic quadruped. Pig, dog, rat, toxodon, name it.
