    lucky saturday morning(w/pics showing how the shaft abrader stones work)

    found this stuff this morning
    note the little point lying just 4inches behind the axe
    I was focused so hard on the axe that I did not see the point for a while

    great finds,but considering the site your field is on, and the pictures you've shown us, I'm not surprised.

    reddirt, the round stone shows use all the way around the outside edges
    it must have been used as some kind of hammerstone
    there are hundreds of these stones in all sizes laying around
    I have quite a few of them and I don't save them very often any more
    I will try to post a picture of these for you

    Re: a real lucky saturday morning

    plehbah, here is how the shaft abrader or polisher was used I thought some forum members would like to see
    they were used in pairs held together by hand
    the shaft was worked back and forth
    I have tried this and it works as good or better than any modern way of sanding or polishing an arrow or spear shaft
    I have found lots of these some with small grooves and some with bigger grooves
    most of them have been used on both sides
    some sides have 2 or 3 grooves like an x or something
    many are used until the groove gets so deep that the stone breaks
    all are made of sandstone that I have found

    Re: lucky saturday morning(w/pics showing how the shaft abrader stones work)

    I will try to take a picture of one stone that I have which is about 2 inches square by 4inches long
    this shaft polishing stone has 5 different grooves in it
    it is also made of sandstone like all the rest of them
    I will try to get a pic of it tonight, it is very interesting

    Re: lucky saturday morning(w/pics showing how the shaft abrader stones work)

    plehbeh, I have a lot of small stones showing use on the outside which I have quit picking these up as I have too many
    I was wondering the opinion if forum members the likes of you knew of uses that these could have been used for
    I am thinking that the smaller ones could have been used for preparing small amounts of medicine,spices, or
    maybe some different colors of dye for porcupine quills or maybe different colors of paint for ceremonial items
    do you agree ?
    I will put a new post up now with 2 images of different sizes of thes stones with some very small polished stones
    that were not used for this but were obviously brought to the different sights for some reason
    I will title the post medium and small grinding stones and small polished ornamental stones?

    The use/wear patterns on ground-stone artifacts such as the "mano" you pictured there will fall into the categories of pecking and polishing. The use/wear patterns that you noticed as being caused by use as a hammerstone will generally occur on the edges and ends of manos, are a typical pattern, and result from the pounding of various plant food stuffs before the actual grinding.

    All of this assuming it is a mano, and not just a hammerstone. It is hard to tell sometimes from pictures.

    That shaft abrader or axe sharpening stone is cool.

    You are farming an amazing site. Your collection is museum caliber. Keep it together!
    I am unsure of what plebah does not study??
