CABLE DRILLING TOOLS

Below are some of the most common drilling tools for the cable tool drill rig. Click on the images below. If available online you will go to our store. Call for pricing and availability for anything not available on line.

   WIRE LINE (ROPE) SOCKETS
Both the Burns (open side) and the Prosser(regular) rope sockets come with Socketsa hardened mandrel (swivel) that the cable is attached into. The mandrel allows rotation of the cable inside the rope socket. The Burns socket had a side opening allowing easy access to the mandrel and cable end without unscrewing the stem from the rope socket. The Prosser socket requires removing the stem from the rope socket to access the mandrel and cable end. Most people use the Prosser for fishing and the Burns for drilling.

               4- WING MIXER SUB
4-WING MIXER
Attached to the drill string below the above a carbide button bit, the mixer sub serves several purposes. The mixer sub replaces the overall length and weight of a forged steel bit. The mixer sub also provides stabilization and agitation. Since the overall diameter is closer to the diameter of the hole and larger than the stem, the mixer sub provides stabilization in the hole resulting in a straighter hole. Agitating the water and cuttings much the same way as a washing machine fin to keep the cutting suspended allowing new rock to be drilled instead of re-drilling cuttings. The standard length is 4' long. Longer lengths are available to give additional stabilization and weight.
