UNDERREAMER WITH AN HYDRAULIC TRIGGER Patented May 12, 1931 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE JAMES B. TRIPLETT, OF WHITIIER, CALIFORNIA; WILLIAM H. CAMPBELL, F LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, AND WILLIAM H. MAXWELL, OF BEVERLY HILLS, CALI- FORNIA, EXECUT'ORS OF SAID JAMES B. TRIPLETT, DECEASED, ASSIGNORS TO J GEN GRANT, OF LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA UNDERREAMER WITH AN HYDRAULIC TRIGGER Application filed October 18, 1926. Serial No. 14,12,277.

My present invention, which may be regarded as an improvement upon the reamers described in my c'opending patent applications, Serial No. 632,295, filed April 16th,

1923 and Serial No. 107 ,999, filed May 10,

' proved lateral cutters and supporting means therefor.

Other objects of my invention, all forms of which contemplate the utilization of a circulating fluid to release energy stored in a spring or the like, for an expanding effect (said spring being protected from accidental damage) may be best appreciated from the following description of an illustrative embodiment of said invention, taken in connection with the appended claims and the accompanying drawings, in which Figure 1 may be referred to as a median longitudinal section, taken in a vertical plane and showing expansible cutters as occupying an inner position, appropriate to lowering of the same through a casing into a well,a trigger being shown as set and parts being broken away. 7

Figure 2 is a sectional view similar to Figure 1, but showing a trigger as disengaged, with a consequent expansion of lateral cutters.

Figure 3 is a horizontal sectional view taken substantially as indicated by line 3-3 of Figure 1.

Figure 45 is a detail perspective view of a trigger element such as is also disclosed centrally of Figure 3.

Figure 5 is a horizontal sectional View, comparable with Figure 3 and taken substantially as indicated by line 5+5 of Figure 1.

Figure 6 is a detail perspective view, showlng one advantageous type of slidable block for use in the sup ort of a hearing pin, during movements of expansion and retraction.

Figure 7 is a partial vertical section, comparable with a lower central portion of Figure 2, showing alternative features of construction hereinafter described.

Referring to the details of that specific embodiment of my invention illustrated in Figures 1-6 inclusive, -11 and 12 are respectively an upper section and a lower section of the main body of a reaming organization; and said body is adapted to receive and to permit a limited relative longitudinal movement of an inner member or mandrel comprising a shank 13 and a head 11,-the sections 11 and 12 being shown as threaded together at 15 in such manner as to permit the insertion of not only the mentioned head but of reaming and reamer-positioning parts hereinafter described, and the insertion also of a spring 16, shown as confined between an interior shoulder 17, on the upper section 11 and a plate 18, below which packing 19 of any suitable character may be prov vided It should be noted that the shank 13, upwardly terminating in the pin 20, and the head 14 are alike provided with a central longitudinal passage 21 for the downward delivery of a circulating fluid toward a terminal bit 22 (of any usual or preferred type) threaded in a bit-carrying extension 23, into and through which projects a pipe 24:, shown as threaded at 25 into the lower end of the head 14 and as extending through a gland 26; and that the head 14 is provided (as in my prior applications mentioned) with a plurality of downwardly diminishing Wedge or cam faces 27, adapted to effect an expanding or contracting movement of rotatable reaming cutters 28, by means of slidable blocks 29.

Each block 29 is shown pivoted at 30 to a bearing pin'31 upon which a rotatable cutter 28 ismounted; and as provided with a dovetail connection comprising a channel 32 to receive an outwardly expanding and interfitting male element 32', projecting from each cam or wedge face 27.

To prevent a premature movement i'of expansion, and to provide hydraulic means for vinitiating such'expansion, I show a catch 33 as'pivoted at 34 within'a suitable depression 35 in the shank 13 and as provided with an inclined lower surface 36, adapted to engage a correspondingly inclined shoulder 37 at the upper end of the body section 11; and I show the catch 33 as engageable by an interiorly pivoted trigger element 38, comprising a central expansion or plate 39 which, during the lowering of my reamer through a casing, may occupy a substantially horizontal position, thereby obstructing the circulating passage 21, or the equivalent.

The inner end of the trigger 39, or its equivalent, may be pivotally supported in any suitable way, as by means of a pin 40, shown as extending through a threaded plug 41 (which may be nicked at 4.2, in a manner favorable to its insertion or adjustment); but it is not my purpose to emphasize herein the details of construction of my catch and/or my means for catch-releasc,the important point being that, assinning the spring 16, or like means, to be under a suitable compression, and to be held under such compression during the lowering of the described reaming organization, an initiation of downward relative movement in the circulating fluid through the passage 21, after the organization has been brought to a suitable level beneath the lower end of a casing, is reliably effective to release the energy of the spring 16, thereby causing the rotatable cutters 28 to spread, as by an outward rocking of lower pin-supported blocks 43 upon transverse pivot pins 44,an opposite (or relatively upward) movement of the head 14, or its equivalent, being obviously effective, by reason of the mentioned dovetail connection between slidable blocks 29 and the cam surfaces 27, to cause a retraction of rotatable cutters 28 toward their initial positions. 7

Although the specific character of my rotatable cutters and cooperating parts may be regarded as comparatively immaterial to the means and methods by which I effect an expanding or contracting movement thereof, I suggest in Figure 7 alternative details of cutter construction and support. In the figure last referred to, I show a bent or 2-sectional bearing pin 31a, as pivoted to a.

slidable block 29a (shown as engaging an inclined surface 27a upon head 14a by means of a dovetail connection comprising an inwardly projecting male element 32a entering a slot 320,) this pin being provided, near its upper end, with a collar 45a and provlded at its lower end with an extension 46a, which may be held within a lower block 43a (pivo ted at Ma) by means such as a transverse pin 47a.

On an upper section 48a of the pin 31a, I show a plurality of separately rotatable cutting elements 28a, engag ng washers 49a, 50a and 60a,the last mentioned washer being, in turn, engaged by a spacing plate 610.

This spacing plate may be disposed centrally of the pin 31a at a point where its inclina tion changes,this plate being of such shape as to be held against rotation by this engagement with the inclined surface 27 (I and/or between substantially vertical lateral surfaces 62a, which define a slot through which each reaming cutter may be expanded and retracted, by any suitable means.

Below the spacing plate 61w (whose upper and lower surfaces are intended respectively to extend perpendicularly to the axis of rotatable cutters disposed above and below the same) I show a lower section 63a of each bent pin 310, as surrounded by an additional rotatable cutter 64a,-a replaceable sleeve 65a of a suitable hard or special metal being optionally interposed, and washers being optionally inserted, as at (36c and/or (17a.

It will be understood that after lowering a reamcr of the above type into a hole, the initiation of circulation will release the catch 33, permitting spring 16 to expand the cutters; and that reaming cutters of the preferred type illustrated in Figure 7 may be used either with or independently of the above-described means for expanding and for controlling the expansion thereof, a circulating fluid being in either case presumably delivered to a suitable terminal bit through passage 21a and pipe 24a,parts not shown in Figure 7, being presumably of the same general character as corresponding parts illustrated in preceding figures; and I emphasize, among the notable zulvantages of reaming details illustrated in Figure 7. the fact that the respective sections of the cutter and/or the supports therefor may be separately replaced, in case of undue wear or damage, and the fact that the upper cutters 28a may be, in the preferred construction last-described, finally disposed in a substantially vertical position, favorable to the cutting of a substantially uniform and crlindrical hole, having such a finished surface as to permit a free descent of easing therethrough.

Although I have herein described a single complete embodiment of my reaming organization including an hydraulic trigger, suggesting alternative types of reaming cute ters and positioning means therefor, it should be understood not only that various features of my invention might be independently used but also that various additional modifications might be devised, by those skilled in the arts to which this case relates, without involving the slightest departure from,the spirit and scope of my invention, as the same is indicated above and in the following claims,
