going back to this thread. http://www.bobistheoilguy.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/3510412/1 both me and his son told him that the contraption he built would not take the weight. being hard headed he told us to stuff it. unfortunatly we were correct. he is in the hospital in an induced coma. basically the pump and pipe fell down the well and the cable he was using got wrapped around him. he lost some fingers,an arm and has a huge gash in his head. nearly bled to death as nobody else was home to help. all because he thought $3500 was too much to have it profesionally pulled.
