If they had been coming out of the hole there would be 2 sets of tongs being used to break the joint. Most of the rigs I was around we used both tongs making or breaking because our rigs did not have a locking rotary table
Yep and when pulling or setting collars you put the wedding band on them. The old saying goes if we have to go fishing for those collars the first thing I better see when they come out is the wedding band or there will be hell o pay

A mouse hole rig, quite possibly only a 3 man drill crew maybe 4 man with the oiler doubling as the derrick hand when making a trip
drill pipe raised with a sand line from the pipe box or rack up the Vee door then lowered into the mouse hole pipe with a spring or bladder cushion bottom.
there might not even be a monkey board for standing pipe when making a trip if not then each joint has to be returned to the mouse hole as they come out of the ground the connection opened then picked up with the sand line and guided back down the vee door as another joint is pulled from the hole.
If there is a monkey board then the swivel will be set aside plugged into the mouse hole the bails and elevators will be placed on the hook pipe pulled out of the hole the derrick hand will slot it in the fingers of the monkey board then open the elevators so the process can be repeated .It will get real crowded real fast when there is 1000s of feet of drill stem standing
re post #8 , Frank S;. Linguists studying English speculate we have access to around 750,000 words. They cannot calculate an actual number, because so many of those words have a multitude of applicable uses. Nearly all of that is vocational, far more than used by professionals. Believe it or not.
...we'll learn more by wandering than searching...
