This video shows spalling a basketball-sized hunk of Edwards Plateau chert. I use a solid copper mallet, demonstrate swing, talk about getting rid of convexities on the core. spall on the ground and hand-held and other basics (not necessarily in that order). I remove a lot of large flakes in relation to te size of the rock being spalled.

This is my fiest video, so ignore the shadow of the tripod, dogs, air planes, etc., etc......
