  • Patent number: 10391565
    Abstract: A general purpose hole saw guide and a method of forming holes through surfaces, without the need of a centering bit, are provided. The hole saw guide includes a circular disk with concentric grooves on its surface. The disk is transparent and portable for placement on a surface through which a hole is to be drilled to facilitate the centering and stabilizing control of a hole saw on the surface. The method includes the steps of providing a transparent disk having concentric grooves; positioning the disk on a surface; mounting the disk to the surface; inserting a hole saw that is fitted to a drill into the grooves of the disk; drilling a hole through the disk and surface beneath it; and removing the disk from the surface after the hole has been drilled.

    Abstract: The invention generally relates to intraluminal procedures, and, more particularly, to a contra-rotating cutting assembly for use with an atherectomy device to remove occlusive material from an occluded lumen, such as a blood vessel or other body lumen. The contra-rotating cutting assembly includes a rotatable housing having a distal end, an opposing proximal end and a lumen extending between the distal and proximal ends. The housing is configured to rotate about a longitudinal axis in a first direction. The cutting assembly further includes a rotatable cutter head positioned within at least a portion of the lumen of the housing and in coaxial alignment with the housing. The cutter head is configured to rotate about the longitudinal axis in a second direction opposite the first direction.

  • Patent number: 10220543
    Abstract: The invention relates to a core drill with an end portion (3) and a drill bit portion (1-2). The end portion and the drill bit portion are joinable in a watertight fashion with a sealing element (11). The sealing element (11) is provided in a space between the end portion and the drill bit portion, such that it is being compressed in a sealing fashion when the end portion and the drill bit portion are joined. The end portion and the drill bit portion are locked together with a joining element (8, 10) which achieves this locking effect when moves in the radial direction of the core drill. When the joining element moves in this direction, the end portion and the drill bit portion move towards each other. Thus the sealing element is being compressed while concurrently the end portion and the drill bit portion are joined together. This is further achieved without the joining element having to extend in the axial direction of the core drill. Typically, the joining element (8, 10) is constituted by a set screw.

  • Patent number: 9579733
    Abstract: A hole saw includes a circular saw blade and a cover plate. The circular saw blade is made by rounding a lengthwise rectangular metal sheet and connecting two ends thereof to define therein an accommodating space. The circular saw blade has one edge provided with a plurality of sawteeth and an opposite edge provided with a connecting portion. The cover plate covers the connecting portion of the circular saw blade and has a base, a positioning portion and a shoulder. The positioning portion extends from the base toward the connecting portion. The shoulder is formed between the base and the positioning portion. Thereby, the hole saw has advantages about low manufacturing costs and short production cycle. Besides, since the shoulder increases contacting area between the circular saw blade and the cover plate, the structural firmness of the soldered hole saw is improved.

  • Patent number: 7818867
    Abstract: A hole saw having efficient slug removal preferably includes a saw cup, a shank portion and a pilot cutting device. A cutting surface is formed on an open end of the saw cup. The inside surface, outside surface and cutting surface of the saw cup are given a low friction treatment. A fluoropolymer resin coating is used for the low friction treatment. The friction treatment is applied by spraying thereof on the saw cup. The saw cup is then heated to a predetermined temperature for a set period of time. The low friction treatment is cured when the saw cup is used. The shank portion is attached to a closed end of the saw cup with any suitable fastening process. The shank portion preferably retains the pilot cutting device.

  • Patent number: 7648315
    Abstract: A lock body in a locked state is inserted radially inward of an outer surface. A stopper body in a contact state holds the lock body in an unlocked state. The stopper body in a non-contact state is retracted from the lock body. A pressing body is switchable between a standby state and a retracted state. The pressing body in the standby state selectively contacts a central shaft when an insertion portion is inserted in a support cylinder. The pressing body in the retracted state is retracted from the stopper body. An urging member urges the pressing body into the standby state, and urges the stopper body into the contact state. The urging member detachably engages the pressing body to the stopper body. Thus, the structure of the cutter holder is simple.
