Work Over rigs- Pulling units

We started in 1979 custom fabricating  replacement drum assemblies and complete WO rigs. Some of our drums were rolled steel plate then lathe turned  to close OD tolerances.  We continued to offer all steel in addition  to CAST DRUM assemblies.

The pride of quality workmanship in a single drum assembly or a complete draw works was evident in each unit.

The market for this part of our endeavor disappeared in 1987.
It disappeared just after several thousand Texas independent oil operators disappeared at $9.00 oil

This was one of the  more FUN parts of the oil business   
We enjoyed providing  some of  tools  that made the oil 
operators job possible.

It is not my intention to be negative by relating the facts
and showing the photos on this page.

Hopefully, having a reminder of events past will help people understand and evaluate events in the oil business today.
