Thank you for the exposure Keith, much appreciated. I find native tool making methods very interesting. It really is an amazing use of a natural resource.

As I have been studying recently the American Indians also utilised stone extensively in their bushcraft. The stone mortar- pestle and the stone axe and handle design of both the American and Australian natives appears to be nearly identical although the Indian artifacts appear to be more elaborate and portable.

The following link shows some excellent examples of Indian stone tools in comparison.

You are very welcome Dave and thank you for the video. I love primitive tools, and making them. Thanks for the link.
A tip Dave. Every time you leave a message here, put in your blog url, or on anyone elses blog for that matter. It gets picked up by various seachers (of which is too technical for me but my wife knows all about it) and you will get more exposure.
