    Did he go down there to confirm that that was a hole?

    This is called cable percussion drilling. It's an interesting technique. It's much slower than rotary drilling, but you can weld the tools together from junkyard scrap in an afternoon. The drilling can even be done by hand if you have the endurance for it.

    I don't think you could pay me enough to go down in that hole. I do wonder why and what he is doing. He is hold something in his hand when he goes down.

    Maybe to mushroom out the bottom so the piling doesn't sink. Same comment that there is NO way I'm going down a hole.
