Polish term or phrase: łyżkowanie linowe
From a book on the Polish oil industry. Possibly a 19th-century usage.

MacGarvey wprowadził wiele innowacji technicznych. Jako jeden z pierwszych zastosował w żurawiu kanadyjskim łyżkowanie linowe, do którego używał liny manilowej, gdyż mała średnica bębna żurawia kanadyjskiego uniemożliwiała stosowanie liny stalowej.

Petrolia drillers developed the Canadian pole-tool method of drilling which was especially useful in new fields where rock formations were a matter for conjecture. The Canadian technique was different from the American cable-tool method. Now obsolete, cable-tool drilling uses drilling tools suspended from a cable which the driller paid out as the well deepened.

Canada's pole-tool rig used rods or poles linked together, with a drilling bit fixed to the end of this primitive drilling "string." Black-ash rods were the norm in early Petrolia. Iron rods came later. Like the cable tool system, pole-tool drilling used the weight of the drill string pounding into the ground from a wooden derrick to make hole.
