Do you think the pyramid builders used mechanical saw's?

some stones scattered around the area of the pyramids present some deep cuts and holes that couldn't be made with chisels, only possible with maybe a diamond saw blade and the holes done with the help of sonic drilliing

watch this video you might like it

in the video David Childress and Christopher Dunn examine saw marks in the stones, advanced lifting and moving techniques found at the Giza Plateau, Abu Rawash, Abu Garab, and the underground catacombs of the Serapeum and other areas. Finally Dunn explains his theory of the Giza Power Plant and his view that the pyramids at Giza were originally part of a plan to "drive the earth into harmony." A mind-blowing look at solid evidence for extraordinary ancient technology.

There's probably quite alot of debris at The Great Pyramid Quarry.

Excellent, thank you! But by the statistics provided by the link they state that the cubic volume of the pyramid is less than 2% of that removed from the quarry.

From the site:


Volume cubic meters
Khufu pyramid 2,590,000
Khufu quarry 2,760,000

Where'd you get 2%?

Don't forget, the pyramid is not solid, and some of the stone came from Aswan.

Unless I'm mistaken, I find it very unlikely that 2.5 million blocks could be fashioned by hand tools and leave behind less than 2% gross volume. Heck, even if they were being cut with diamond tipped blades you would think 1 to 2 percent would be left behind in the cut line dust...

Large voids in the pyramid are filled with huge gobs of mortar and stone chips. BTW, your statement of 2.5 million stones is certainly wrong.

That estimate assumes a solid pyramid. The GP was built around a small hill, which takes up a reasonably large portion of the volume. Note also that the voids I mentioned above were unknown when the estimate was made (back in the 1800's.)

I've seen estimates that were less than half that.

Not to mention that the core of the pyramid is made up of stones of numerous and various sizes, many of them unshaped, and all of them simply mortared into place.

The shaped stones you see on the outside were put there to undergird the casing stones, which are now missing from the GP (but some can be seen at the top of Kephren's pyramid next door.) The casing stones were also from another quarry, but at the moment, I can't recall offhand where it was.

Lastly, the shaped stones, the limestone ones, were broken out of the quarry with those shapes. Limestone cleaves that way. Any that needed to be sized could have been trimmed with copper chisels or, if necessary, copper saws with sand abrasive (toothless saws.) These two methods are known to have been used. No need at all for any mechanical saws.

They didn't use chisels they used tube drills and sand saws

lol good old fringy Childress and friend

Sorry the problem arises that no evidence whatsoever exists to support these fantasies. A great deal of evidence does exist however that the AE used craftsmanship and simple techniques to do the same thing and similar techniques were used at various times in different cultures.
