Pilot casing mill

Image Number 2 for United States Patent #5027914.

A pilot casing mill for removing unwanted pipe from a well bore, which includes a cylindrical pilot having helical vanes and adapted for mounting on one end of a cylindrical mill body. The mill body is provided with longitudinal slots which receive outwardly-extending blades fitted with multiple cutting elements for engaging and cutting the pipe when the pilot casing mill is mounted on the end of a rotatable drill string and inserted in the well. In a preferred embodiment of the invention the blades are removably secured in the slots by removable wedge blocks and may be longitudinally adjusted in place to align adjacent rows of cutting elements, by operation of multiple adjusting screws seated against an adjusting screw ring mounted in a circumferential slot provided in the mill body.
