This is an interesting site regarding late 19th/early 20th century industrial stone cutting tools: From Quarry to Cemetery Monuments.

One thing to consider regarding what tools they may have used is that they also must have had mechanical apparatus to secure and turn the stone as well as precision move the tool.
