The Rod & Tubing Machine while still mounted on the 1937 Chevrolet Truck parked at the Lease House.  Note:  The Farm House in the background is where Jeff Vickers lived and you can also see the Walking Beam that drilled the J. P. Vickers Discovery Well #1.  I can tell by the double sheaves on top of the machine mast that the second drum has been installed at the time of this picture.  Also shown is the trailer that previously hauled the spool for sand line cable.  A neighbor, Sue Nell Mims and GranPa,  E. Ray Smyth are sitting in the wagon.
