Core Drilling Equipment
« on: January 26, 2008, 12:07:48 PM »
Am considering the acquisition of gas-powered, one-man, portable core drilling equipment for sampling hard to get at hardrock applications. If possible, would prefer a unit which could also do placer core sampling.  Does anyone have any experience with such, to suggest one brand over the others, and/or any downfalls and operational  advice?

But he with a chuckle replied
That maybe it couldn't but he wouldn't be one
Who'd say so until he had tried.

Do you have some ideas about what you need for capability?
The Winkie style of drill works ok for hardrock to max 50 feet or so. "A" sized rod so small core.
Don't forget you need water to core drill too so that becomes a factor.
Don't see much capability for placer exploration though.
Also one man portable is a tad optimistic unless one man wants to make several trips or he/she comes with a quad or burro.
What the heck - lets just keep mixin' stuff together till it blows up or smells REALLY bad!

That Shaw Drill is pretty cool! And only $2100 for the kit. Beats the Winkie if you just wanted shallow samples.

I got rid of my Shaw on Ebay. I kept breaking bits at $90 a pop, when drilling thru alternating hard and soft strata.  Maybe somebody knows something I don't. I contacted the manufacturer.  They weren't particularly helpful.

Hi, To drill into the hard formation with a diamone drill bit , you need water to lube. and to cool the bit. You will lose your water and bugger up your diamones.

I think you should check out Ingersoll Rand Tools They have drilling equipment and used equipment available.
