Primitive Drilling
J.D. McGuire - 1900

 Gustav's Library Vintage Reprint

A thorough study of primitive drilling techniques.  Drawing examples from ancient cultures, including the North American Indians, and drilling experimentation, it explains how various stone materials could be successfully drilled using ancient techniques.  I found the discussion of copper tubes used as drill bits charged with sand especially interesting

This 7" x 9-1/2",  134 page soft cover book is perfect bound, 201 illustrations.    $12.95
