Dendrochronological borer 300/12/6,5


The Berlin-type borer for dendrochronological purpose enhances sampling-capabilities in case of special needs. In addition of our own products, we included the tool of PFUNDT-Schneidwerkzeugmechanik into our delivery program. We recommend the use of this tool in case of not too much pitch streaked coniferous timbers or if very small boreholes are needed because of special sampling-requirements. Due to its construction and the construction materials the borer is not suitable for large series of samplings in oak for instance, especially in case of timbers with broad annual rings. Furthermore the tool was made for careful and sensitive utilization. The producer points out in his instruction manual that the borer has to be used with a considerable amount of patience. Special attention has to be paid on a proper and straight guidance. For more information, please see the producers´ homepage.
