First horizontal Grinding benches were used already in the 7th Century BC for processing Glass type objects. The objects found during excavation were partially traces of ground rings.When a work piece is chucked in a lathe-type device or clamped on a turntable and a wood is centered, a pattern develops accordingly. Always two persons were required for processing as per this method.One persons works on the work piece with the tool,and the other turns a type of crank. At first such glass pieces were discovered during excavations from Mesopotamia so far. It is believed that this handicraft had spread from there to Mediterranean.
