operate over substantially the entire well bore ters, mounted on said pins arranged to operate over the outer zone of the well bore, eacharm of the other pair having an inwardly aswell as out-u" wardly extending pin, the inwardly extending V pins cooperating ,toiorm a continuous pin extending between said arms andtrans versely of :the [outer cutters, the outwardly extending pins being directed downwardly, androller cutters on; said continuous pin as wellas on said outwardly extending pins, said cutters being arranged to within said zone.

6'. In a rotary drill bit, a body,y'two pairsfof arms attached to the body, the arms of each pair being oppositely disposedabouft the axis of said body, each arm of one pair havingan inwardly, n and downwardly extendingpin; a roller cutter on each of said pins, said cutters being arranged to operate over the outer zone of the well bore, each arm of the other pair having a pin extending outwardly and obliquely to the, axis'of saidjbody, a

whereby the cutters operate over a substantially continuous circular area; i a a 3. In a rotary drilling bit, abody, two pairs oi! ar'ms-attachedtothe bodyythe arms of each; pair-beingoppositelydisposedabout the axis of n said body, onepair of arms carrying roller cut-- a tersarranged to operate over the :outer zone of;
