When I was a kid growing up my brothers and I use to wire brush down the welds on these machines and smell the new paint applied to the finished machines.  The Gypsy  Spudder   #5, drilled lots of Oil and Water Wells and tailed in,  deeper wells in Illinois in the 1950"s.
All of the Drilling with this Cable Tool Machine was done with some 6 cylinder engines and Truck Chassis Drive Trains through the Rear End Chain Drive.

Hey There from Texas. Your Buyer Representative flew into Midland, Texas and purchased my 2004 Lincoln Town Car and was gone within an hour. Left some Arkansas money in Texas and was gone. Nice doing business with you and Cash on the Barrel head! Thanks Ron in Texas August 23, 2013

Man what a Deal. This is the Best Oil and Gas Museum in the United States and has more exhibits and real stuff than most of the Museums in Texas and the Nation. Yes there are Rotary and Cable tool Drilling Machines that date back 60 years and these all steel drilling machine stand erect to prove this existance. The Gypsy Spudder #5 was manufactured in Chanute, Kansas by Sutcliffe Pipe and Supply and is the showplace of Cable Tool Drilling in the 1940"s in Eastern Kansas. Go see this Museum, look at the old Star Spudder and the late model Rotary Rig on the Museum Grounds. Included is the Gypsy Spudder #5. You won't be disappointed and now you can see why Oil is $100 per bbl and gasoline for your car is $3.50 at least. Sincerely, Ron Sutcliffe Midland, Texas 2013. I donated the Gypsy Spudder Number 5 on the Concrete Slab in Front of the Museum in Downtown Eldorado, Kansas in 2008
