Information about coring device

Cave coring device used to extract oriented samples from unconsolidated cave sediments. The hand-operated hydraulic device can core up to 15 m deep (10 m is the current record). The device breaks down into small parts that can easily be transported through small cave passages. It can also be set up in rooms with low ceilings (3 m). The device has also been used outside of caves on lake sediments with excellent results. I designed and manufactured this device specifically for paleomagnetism studies at Cave of the Wind, Manitou Colorado. Contact me for more information. (If enough people contact me about this I will add more pictures and information about the coring device to this site.)
