10 thousand years ago

To the rear of the junction she bent down. But then there is not a decorative treatment and targeted production of different size of stone for buildings. In the Macho Piccho in the mountains, also traces of stone extraction for construction. What tool/tools this was done will probably remain a mystery. From the analysis of the surveyed structures could be accurately determined that their builders could with equal ease to process stone of any kind in any spatial directions. For the ancients it was so easy and relaxed that is simply breathtaking and even imagination can not paint a picture of such works. Such are incredibly difficult to reproduce in the present. Ancient just cut out of rock blocks of the form that they desired and they were immediately used. The drilling installation – they can be used when making various holes, ubiquitous in all ancient complexes.

He could explain the perfectly smooth internal surface units in areas of the joint. However, what these settings could be hard to say. Its use could explain the treatment plots of whole rocks and mining rocks. Such processing methods can also be seen in the structural elements that seem to be poured concrete but are actually monolithic fragments of ancient buildings. Tulaproject what kind of tools the builders used an ancient civilization, as in the processing of stone, and during its production. Clay technology is probably not the type of instrument, and method of stone processing. It could be used, bringing the stone to the wall, and then cut off all the contact surfaces and mounted adjacent blocks. Directly in the rock fortress of Ollantaytambo very often you will notice a variety of niches – traces of quarrying. This saw is perfect for cutting paving slabs, bricks and other small items. Here you can also see the inner curved joints blocks located inside the wall. After all, along with the standard holes that can be produced in conventional drills, there is a hole a palm and more. But the use of known designs of MPI calls into question the possibility of their application when used in the mountains, as well as cutting curly joints of the blocks with a floating line. The laser is a very likely tool that was probably used by the ancient builders. Four types of instrument that was probably used by the ancient builders:

Circular saw – currently it is used in construction when cutting metal rebar, and the brick, concrete and other similar materials. Moreover, these units were installed, complementing the disadvantages of surface mining, and thus was combined natural and artificial structures. Because it is not clear how the field can soften the surface of the stone, then to process it faces as now it is done by plasterers in the alignment of walls with plaster mixtures. For blocks in hundreds of kilograms of used done other industrial stationary saws that use for cooling the working surface of the water jet. And if I used such technologies now, it is only by extreme necessity as a decorative finish plot mountain. For example, in the fortress of Ollantaytambo, in the aforementioned “the Temple of ten niches”, the bottom surface of overlapping niches is not exactly horizontal direction.
