Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but that's some sort of boring head used as a pole?
Looks like a oil drilling bit.
Creative! ...that sign looks petrified.
Correct, specificlly that is rock bit.
These are typically saved for the hard rocks
Can be used for oil, gas or water.
Similar configuration as a tricone, but I have not a multi cone like that before
I used to see a lot of these growing up. My maternal grandparents used to haul oil drilling equipment all over the coastal bend (they base of operations (which also was based out of their home) in Kingsville). Late 80s though, no longer did that due to the oil bust in that decade.
Hotshot drivers? They make good $ when the gettins good
25c? Linear foot? By the pound?
Am I mistaken in thinking that that thing is probably worth enough in scrap material to buy a several lengths of pipe?
But then they wouldn't have a unique sign post, it worked to get you to stop and take a picture!
Tis very true, though full disclosure, I grabbed this off of a clickbait gallery on weather.com.
I used to like Weather.com but it's not even weather anymore. It's unrelated click bait and rising oceans propaganda and weird names for snow storms
Remember when you'd tune in to the weather channel, and at every 8 minute mark, they'd show the weather, some sweet jazz music, and otherwise it was national weather on a loop. My Grandma would constantly have it on, just for some noise in the house. I miss that.
Now it's all doom and gloom and look what happened when an 18 wheeler took a corner too fast and it was a light mist outside! Oh No! MIST!!!
But if anybody else is interested in a piece of clickbait about 'abandoned signs' (of which plenty are still advertising open places, they just look appealingly weathered) here's the link, second gallery down:
Looks like most of these are along Rt 66. My hubby and I were talking about sometime taking a vacation and driving Rt 66. Fly out east, rent a car and drive. If we end up doing this, I'll have to keep a look out for these really cool signs
I don't know, looks pretty interesting to me!!
Love when boring old signs have an actual art aspect to them. This is cool as heck thanks for sharing.
