1. Ina coringdevice, a core barrel, hydraulic means for deflecting said core barrel to a posi- 'tion at an angle with respect to a well bore, and

-hydraulicmeans for forcing the core barrel so "deflectedin a direction substantially parallel with pin 2|, this pressure will act upon primary piston ,4 to force the same downwardly against the 7 tension of the spring 5 and to act through the connection ii) to swing theisecondary; cylinder 8 together with the core. barrel i! ,into a lateral p t n ata a s e o t ep m rr Cyl n er, I.

Application of further pressure will act upon the piston l6. and apply force tending to movethe core barrel downwardly within the secondary cylinder 8 and when this force becomes great enough itwill shearthe pin 2| ,andthe core bar rel I! will be forceddownwardly and sidewardly by virtue of the inclinedpesitionof the secondj ary cylinder. Because of this direction of movement the cutting head l8 of the core barrelwill be caused to enter :the formation forming the side wall of the well bore and asthis, cutting head extends into the formation a core ircm' the formation will be received into the core bar-.

rel-. During this reception of the core into the corebarrel, fluid within the core barrel will be vented therefrom and through thejlateral .openings 24,1in the secondary cylinder 8 when the core barrel has. moved downwardly by the desired amount the secondary'piston l6 willjhave passed to a point below, the uppermost of-the openings 24 in the secondary cylinder and-when this pistonpasses below these openings itiwill permit the venting or release of the pressure, fluid which is forcingthe piston downwardly.- This will be indicated to the operator by a speeding up of the pumps which usually provide the source of fluid pres'sureand the operator will thereupon know, that the device has been extended as far as possible. He will thereupon release the'pressure and the spring ,5,wilitend to move theprimary' piston 4 backto its original'position and realign the secondary cylinder 8 with the pri mary' cylinder3.
