A bearing member 31 is secured in position between each,

pair of the cars by a dowel pin to define a rounded beari'ng'surface forpiercing dogs 32 to-th'rust against. The dogs arepivotally retained' on the ears by means of screws 33. Each piercing dog has a point 34 and an outer; cutting edge 35. The points of the piercing dogs are disposed'below the gashing rollers a distance equal to about one half the lengthof a collar a. A stop shoulder 36 is-provided on each dog to limit its inward swinging movement. Leaf springs 37 secured to the dogs engage the shell and tend to maintain the piercing dogs in their innermostposit-ion.

Between each pair of ears 30, at 90 to the gashing rollers, are stripper dogs-39, supported on bearing blocks and retained'by screws in the samemanner as piercing dogs 32. Dogs 39 have'lifting shoulders 40 for engaging the under edge of a collar,-the shoulders being disposed below the points of the'piercing dogs. The stripper dogs are urged to swing-inwardly by leaf springs 41, a stop shoulder 40" being provided on each dog to limit its inward swinging movement.

iVith the parts assembled as shown in Fig. 1, the splitter is placed over the drill pipe 7 to be parted and lowered to the collar to be of the cut and the pipe.

split. Lowering is effected by means of the tool string B. As the splitter passes down wardly, the dogs ride over the collars but are maintained in contact with the drill pipe string. The gashing rollers are maintained in contact with the drill pipe string and will ride freely over the collars, as the wedge blocksgmay be I moved upwardly against the action of compression spring 27 and thereby outwardly for the rollers to clear the collars; When the tool has been positionedwith the gushing cutters below the collar to be split, the splitter is pulled upwardly, the wedge blocks being forced into their lower positions by the. upward drag and the cutters into the collars causingithem to gash the collar as indicated by 42in Fig. .3. After about one half'of the collar has been gashed or cut,'the piercing dogs 32 enter'between the bottom A further pull causes the stripper dogs to engage the lower edge of the collar and the piercing dogs to split it.
