Interesting fluting technique

This is quite interesting, if you haven't seen it yet. I'm familiar with the chest crutch technique for blade cores, but this is a new one on me.

if you google for "flintknapping fluting jig" you'll find quite alot of types
My only concern is that is pretty unlikely any of these could be historically used by ancestors

The only thing I've seen offered up by way of explanation with paleo tools are a chest crutch and various levers used with prismatic blade cores.
