We are joined by master jeweler Jeffrey Appling to discuss
ultrasonic technology in the use of cutting and shaping stone.
Jeffrey has been using an ultrasonic drilling and coring machine to
cut, drill, and shape even the hardest of stones and jewels with
ease. The bit of the machine does not spin, the ultrasonic
vibration simply allows the bit to sink into the stone, so it is
possible to core out shapes that are more complex than a simple
circle, and do it in minutes with relatively little work.
We talk about the machine and how it works, and we talk about
the possibility that the ancient Builders may have used something
similar to this machine, only probably much larger in many cases,
to do some of the astonishing work we see at certain ancient
We also look at some of Jeffrey's jewelry work, and discuss
the interesting possibility that an old mission building in
California may show signs of containing very old, high tech
stonework concealed within rough adobe and cobblestone walls.
Be sure to take a look at Jeffrey's blog
and his YouTube Channel
to see more of his
work, and his research into the possibility of the ancients using
Jeffrey sent us a bunch of images which we discuss on the
show. Here they are, more or less in the order we discussed
