• A Modified Increment Borer Handle For Coring In Locations With Obstruction

      Brown, Peter M.; Rocky Mountain Tree-Ring Research, Inc. (Tree-Ring Society, 2007-06)
      A simple modification to a standard increment borer handle is described that enhances use of the borer in situations where obstructions to the rotation of a normal handle prevents utilization of the full length of the borer. The modification, informally called the ‘‘Quad-B’’ (Brown’s bent boomerang borer handle), involves bending both sides of the handle to ~35–40° angles. Some potential uses of the modified handle are described.
