it is my impression that the biradical Q( has to do with a 
vigorous or extended movement, later specializing to RQ(,
TQ(, $Q(, BQ(, NQ( and Q(Q( (damage/destroy a wall), and maybe ... 
yes, PG(. 

i suspect we shall never be able to "prove" if, and when, 
this specialization took place (at some prehistorical point). 
but the use of RQ( in metallurgy (whether it means hammer, patch, 
form a thin sheet, or expand) is, i think, agreed by us all and 
must have occurred at the early bronze era. also the use of 
RQ( for stamp/beat is well documented in the BH and (see ishinan) 
other NWS languages.

I am asking if you think that the root RQ) was introduced  
specifically (and quite late) to apply for metallurgical work.
