    Cool squaring and hefting

    In the expression "squaring and hefting quarried stones to repair the wall", what are the meanings for "squaring" and "hefting" properly?

    1-Is squaring for carving the stones giving them an ashlar shape in the quarry (taking into account "quarried"?)

    2-Is "hefting" for transporting the ashlars till the wall and for raising them to fit them in the right place of the wall?

    Thank You

    1>> squaring the stones to the required shape

    2>> handling, which will include lifting, moving and placing them in position.
