Hi

Having been a machine operator. ..Drilling,...industrial break,..rolls,
Lathe...pipe cutting...Plasma cut/ underwater cut gantry, portable
Senior Burner...orbital cut for pressure vessel shells.

You do indeed know the run speed of the machinery..
You do...Cuz it will kill you...if you are slack in awareness.

As a senior rescue first aid for my Shifts...did witness and know of machinery incidents which nearly killed workers.
One time...a drill operator let the cut milk run dry...the 2"+ bit exploded and raked the welders just opposite the drill booth.
One was knocked down by a hot piece of the fractured drill bit that burned into him like something from a Vietnam war movie.

Egypt Giza plateau and as far as Abu Sir show portable cutting and other aspect machining .
The basalt pavement..the quarry walls...Abu Sir and large diameter disc cutting.

No image,sketch or evidence of this machinery exists,..except for a few images which are
Debate as to function..such as Djed Pillar .

Von Daniken opined that G1 was 3 blocks a minute to satisfy the Egyptology side claim
For Khufu G1 build.
Taking into account the plateau leveling. .the huge pavement blocks. ..
It's dicey all that gets done by puny Egyptians in Khufu reign...so revision of timeline at minimum is required.
But wait!...Snefru builds 3 out in the boonies with little water source to supply ramp or water lever build being pushed this forum.
The logistic side does not support the claims.

For me...the debate is no where in 2550 BC...it's at minimum over 6000 BC and legacy back to before the Ice age ending Era.

I have cut via Plasma Gantry which was computer draw and CNC execute..pressure vessel
Shells and parts. ..so big...they are the size of a US nuclear submarines.
They are heavy wall. ..over 6"..the weight of finished pressure vessel requires cranes to load it on railcars.
The US Consortium obtained telescoping railcars from NASA. ..which were used to move
Saturn V rockets...
The final destination was Louisiana oil facilities.
NATCO. ..the company of my contract... supplied technology for Gulf drilling platforms.
I've even built well head blowout preventors.

The Egyptians are not showing the technology in their visual record.
No Official account exists of claim to building any of the big Pyramids.
Egyptology/Bible 6000 yr England push a knit timeline to according with the Bible.

It's not viable today versus the insight into technology applications and estimate of timeline Age.

We may not know exactly who built the Great Pyramid. ..
We do however reject the mainstream Egyptology account.

Signing off....Puny Dynastic Egyptians are incapable of these huge project scale builds.

Size matters : )
