I don't believe anything. I need hard evidence.
Those publications are hypothesis, although Stocks does use definite terms.
They are well illustrated with "ancient egyptian esq" drawings which gave me the impression that the drawings are illustrations of ancient art work.
I cannot find the original ancient AE artwork.
Secondly I fully accept that the AE may have been capable of core drilling soft limestone as demonstrated by Stocks. Although he refers to it as "solid rock".
And of course if we accept that they had the ability to fabricate a practical cylindrical copper tube. None have been found.
This is where I buy my drills. They are quite expensive as they by necessity are made from hardened tool steel and either tungsten carbide or diamond.
I'm looking for examples of AE limestone core drilling.
If a method could be found to drill hard rock with no more than copper and sand it would revolutionize drilling technology.
A major British tool manufacturer were interested until I mentioned copper and sand and then the phone went dead.
Below is a modern 66mm thin walled drill for light duty. As seen on the above site.
Although it is nowhere near as advanced as the ancient thin walled drill, witnessed by the bore hole at Karnak and elsewhere.
