And yours is? Sorry, but I am not "acting" and my intention is not to be "tough". You just get to the point where you're nonsense is not worth a response.

If you read the tag attached to the picture you can see that is exactly what I am talking about.

The tool in the Rekhmire looks like a version of this same tool and is shown boring into vessels.

And a weight at the top under the handle and the fact it is bored into what is clearly a vase. I did not say "identical" but obviously in principle they are the same type of tool used for the same purpose.

Oh, Audrey. When will you ever learn.
Mastaba of Mereruka, 6th Dynasty:
Quoting Emery regarding early Dynastic stoneware production (Archaic Egypt, Walter B Emery p215:
From unfinished vessels we have ascertained that the vessel was finished externally before the hollowing of the interior was begun. We also know that the rough cutting of the interior was done with the aid of a drill with a curious eccentric handle, to which two oval stones were slung with ropes. These stone weights, which splayed outwards when the drill was turned, thus provided extra motive power. The cutting head of of these drills was a flint blade shaped rather like a blunt arrow head. Such drill-heads, and stone weights, have been found in considerable quantity, and we also have pictures of the the Pyramid Age which show the drill being worked (Fig.124).
"Pictures" as in plural. I assume if it were just these two, which I believe there is at least one other of the same but I cannot find it right now, Emery would have made note as, despite being an impeccable researcher, he further laments (p214):
Unfortunately, we have no really satisfactory evidence of the manufacture of these stone vessels, and, although certain processes of the work are known to us, others remain a complete mystery.
You know full well I am an honest and objective researcher who presents the information accurately to the best of my ability so you know exactly where you can put your "stupid" "dishonest" "vapid" "lie" "selective vision" nonsense.
