Hi Ocka & Hanslune

Thanks. I doubt whether there would be many here who are unfamiliar with Brien Foerster.

The vid posted does discuss the quarries and makes recommendation of others as well.

A huge block of sandstone 8 metres square and near a metre deep (circa 150 tons) how do you even think of undercutting it or splitting it, let alone dragging in one piece, down a mountain slope?

Nah not possible imho. But likely took lots of smaller size ones from the quarry sites.

cheers
