Do you think these people had modern boring machines:
These are made in raised relief which the chisel marks, and "modern boring machine" marks, conform to, not the other way around.

This is a modern quarry in Italy. Note the long tool marks to the right of the worker:
At some modern quarries, however, more traditional methods of quarrying can still be seen. At the peperino tuff quarries near Marino, in the Alban Hills south-east of Rome, blocks are still extracted with specially-designed long versions of the point. The quarryman uses this tool to carve narrow separation trenches along the side and rear of the desired block. The block is then split from the bedrock using numerous small flat wedges, or sometimes a bundle of point chisels, hammered into the stone along its base. The block is then pulled off the quarry face with a rope down to a point where it can be loaded for transport.
Hammers, wedges, chisels.

As said so many time before, clearly demonstrated in both pictures and text, these same chisel marks are found all over the world wherever stone is quarried no different in ancient times than today.
