HOLE SURFACES:

DRILLING GROVES:

An engineer friend showed me a simple trick to see if a hole was drilled with a rotary drill.  Run you finger up and down the hole to feel the groves left behind.

No holes examined here have such grooves.

TEXTURED WALLS:

Holes usually have textured walls.  The texture varies from hole to hole.  Some holes have rather smooth walls.

PROTRUSTIONS ON WALLS:

Some holes have protrusions extending from the hole wall.

PEACEMAKER HOLE 1:

This is a fragment of a star hole with short ridges.  This rock was taken from quarry ruble.

PEACEMAKER HOLE 3:

This hole is away from the quarried area and is still in situ in good shape.  It begins as a half hole and funnels to a spot and the full star hole begins.  Heavy texturing but no sign of rotational drilling.

CONNETICUT HOLES:

The first photo by Tim MacSweeney shows a stone with a hole that is in excellent shape.  The interior is textured and the visible portion of the stone looks wet or vitrified. 

The second hole has a very coarse texture.  Neither shows any signs of rotational drilling.
