New materials for the survey points in caves.

Postby andresros » Feb 21, 2013 2:31 am

Our team has developed new materials with Rodcle, non-aggressive means, for surveying in caves. We propose to introduce relevant data in the fixed points of the caves to researchers. Andres Ros

Sorry, but it is quite funny for me. We use several years 1 mm thick white polystyrene plastic sheets 20x50 mm cut from large formats with 4.0 mm hole. On this material is possible to write with normal pencil. To drill into rock we use Bosch Uneo accudrill - http://www.bosch-do-it.de/de/de/bosch-e ... 199883.jsp - with 4 mm bit and standard Fisher's plastic plugs SX 4 x 20 - http://tinyurl.com/bewjlj7 . Not any screwdriver or hammer necessary. Extremely cheap and fast and easy removable.

Thanks for your answer, certainly not invented anything just to bring new ideas for materials to use in the topography of caves, we have replaced the standard Fisher's plastic for a "staple striped nylon 12mm in length", this measure allows a drill lower than for the standard Fisher's plastic of only 12mm thus saving battery and can do more drills, on the other hand the staple striped is only one piece inserted into the rock if instead place a standard Fisher's plastic must be added metal screw or nail and we do not want is to use small parts in the caves.
As for the Bosch drill is very good team Uneo we use the Bosch GSR 10.8 Li-2 somewhat smaller than usais you.
thank you very much for your input greetings

The trick is one doesn't need to use any other screw or nail. Fisher plastics have a small edging which is enough wide to fix label on place. :wink:
