Quarry Tools & Equipment

Smaller quarry operations usually used hand tools such as plugs and feathers, chisels, quarry bars, and hammers. Here are some photographs of the hand tools used. More photographs and information on quarry and carving tools are available on our web site. Larger quarries used equipment such as power drills, channelers, gadders, and other large equipment. Equipment was first powered by hand, then by steam, then by electricity; and today there are jet-powered saws used in the quarries.

You can view the Brunner and Lay tool catalog, if you're interested in seeing more quarrying equipment.
