Number: 175/293
Name: Boring or penetrating the earth > Below-ground (1) hammer, or (2) impact members
Description: Apparatus comprising (1) a reciprocable member positioned below ground adapted to cause a sudden jar shock or hammer below to the boring apparatus or (2) two telescoping members positioned below ground which members are capable of axial reciprocation with respect to each other and are provided with means to limit said reciprocation, the means for limiting reciprocation being for the purpose of causing an impact or hammer blow or jar to the boring apparatus or a portion thereof.
