    If the Japanese had had rational leadership simply sending them a copy of that picture would have ended the war.

    My dad was a bombardier on the B29 during WWII as a 1st Lt in the Army Air Corps.
    I heard lots of stories as a kid.

    Plenty of demonstrations to lift without any tackle, jacking [or wedging] alternate ends, and raising immense blocks incrementally as they teeter.

    I have limited equipment of actual rigging; but have moved up to 10k pounds with foosball shafts, pinch bars and simple band-sawn aluminum wedges. Eventually I'll make or purchase skates, but those require toe jacks for added height to insert.
    Foosball shafts are only about 5/8" 16mm diameter....

    When we first built it we dug a hole and drop the rocks in drag the others on top then removed the spoil around them easy as, di another one in Devon and one in Lincolnshire. The bosses couldn’t manage their arses over a hole in the ground, so to speak. all ya needed was some good horses for all the poop ive just come out with.

    To come back to earth for a moment - there is four stone circles ive heard of in the UK but stone henge is the most publically know and thanks to some dodgy builders back in 1914 the most complete. made very popular by hippies and druids and now a huge rock concert at Glastonbury. The "A" (A39) road running passed it has a history all of its own, it’s like the oldest road or something - vintage car enthusiasts love it for some nostalgic reasoning.
