Are there no engineers who state otherwise?
Images of a levigator.
>Did you notice the following:
>1.) The levigator in that example is made of steel, not copper
If it's made of steel.... it's very soft tool steel otherwise it would be useless for such (it has to be considerably softer than the abrasive to actually lap effectively). Why can't the levigator be made of copper or iron? Copper, although quite expensive compared to soft tools steel, is an ideal lapping material and it's still used today for such.
>2.) The stone slabs weren't remotely as big/heavy as the real
What difference is that going to make? Seem to me a few of the lithographic posters in the 1800s were quite large.
>3.) It took a lift-truck to move it, nonetheless.
15 tons blocks of limestone cannot be moved around human power..... since when? That's how big the ones were with the claimed 0.01" tolerances (only a very small number of known examples, not a couple million)...... what was the surface area of one of those sides?

Simple..... not primitive..... how is a stone or copper levigator not simple technology?

As opposed to what, melted and/or moldable rock claims, or super-advanced technologies that all seemingly require false claims about diamonds? Remember, that when I wrote "many fringe authors have at the very least a rather lacking understanding of basic geology which produces completely absurd and ridiculous claims".... I was not kidding there.
