Default went revearse scrapping friday

thanks to skidmore for calling me and letting me know about these. these were mainly used in penn. from what i can gather. i went to a scrap yard on friday on a tip he gave me about a walking beam pump jack for windy city at coolspring. i have been looking for a pumpjack made out of i-beam and most of them were made out of pipe or wood timbers in the 1800's. i have a photo of one from windy city origonal oil field that mike fuoco took in the mid 1980's. i will include some of the many photos i took of the scrap yard. they pay 150.00 a ton and sell for 450.00. i tried to get the jacks donated, but business is business. they had to lift and move some old steam engines and bedplates to get to some of the parts. a good day of recycling without crushing and melting. the first 2 photos is where the first walking beam was and the second 2 is where the second beam was.

the first photo is of windy city oil field in mid 1980's just as it was in the mid 1880's. we have one of the steam engines and now a walking beam pumpjack. hope to have this all set up late next year or early the following spring.

the koontz engines were made across the river from my house. the pulley was made at parkersburg rig and reel, also across the river from me. parkersburg also had, supposedly, the best wood derek builder in the world. come to parkersburg wv to see the oil and gas museum. also, the rathbone well, about 35 minutes from my house was drilled long before the drake well in penn., that takes the credit for the first oil well in america.

Boy, seeing stuff like that in a scrapyard just makes me want to

Those old oilfield engines are nice....and that old Allis-Chalmers looks to be a straight old tractor, and even has inflated tires! I can't BELIEVE what folks will scrap!

Mike, for many, times are tough. When ya needs money to eat, you do whatever you have to. Before storm Sandy, contractors around here were bringing running heavy equipment to scrappers.

First post ... second picture ... that Oil City Bed looks like it has a "Ball" conversion cylinder on it. Cool !

hint hint ... I sure could use a matched set of Rake Wheels like that yellow pair in your later pictures. How much ya want for them ?

Hey Rod those bikes look like Allstates, sold by Sears. Not many around anymore. If you want to attempt a restore, I have a nice tank for one. I would gladly donate it towards your cause....
