My swivel was a saver in the end. It allowed me to eliminate the off-set chain method and have a better balanced drilling system. The cost of a swivel for any system is probably $300. Too, much for DIY'ers like me. The $12 fit me perfect.

I do plan on drilling one more well just for a hand pump so the grand-kids can play with it. The well I'm drilling now is for my main cabin water system.

One more thing is to be sure to use plumber grease between the 1" insert pipe (the one with holes) and the rubber gasket. This will allow good lubrication for the pipe to spin freely with in the coupling.
