I am a Toolpusher for CanElson Drilling (Formerly Totem Drilling) in S.E. Sask for the past 6 years, prior to that I worked for Big Sky Drilling for 19 1/2 years, pushing Rig 4 for almost 10 of those years. I build working, 1/16 scale drilling rigs as a hobby.
I spend 100's of hours of my spare time replicating prototype drilling rigs and currently building a "Hodgson Design" 2800 m. tele double that will be 'almost' completely functional.
I have built 2 models in the past that work and shown them in exhibits & parades. I have a small machine shop on my acreage where I spend my time building them.
I will post more close up pic's soon of detailing in travel blocks, drawworks, elevators and other small items that go along with making the unit look complete. These are all build from scratch out of iron and 12 VDC powering.
I hope you enjoy what you see!
