Product Details

Set of 15 Nickel Plated Steel Cork Borers
by GSC International

This set of 15 cork borers, and the included punch, are all made out of heavy duty nickel plated steel, and range in diameter from 4-25mm. Each borer is stamped 1 through 15 around the collar, making them easily identifiable, and their difference in size allowes for them to be nested for storage. A cork borer consists of a long, hollow tube that is slightly tapered at one end for boring through cork or rubber, and a nickel plated steel handle at the other.

A cork borer allows you to create a series of uniformly sized holes in both cork and rubber stoppers, to meet a variety of laboratory needs. The standard holes in a rubber stopper are approximately 4-5mm in diameter, which this set can easily accomodate. Often times, a bigger hole is needed in a stopper, so that the appropriate glass tubing, thermometer, funnel, or other laboratory equipment can properly fit without breaking.

They are also used in dendrochronology, which is the analysis of tree rings, where they are employed to take a sample from a living tree. Cork borers also find use for taking samples when a constant diameter is required, such as testing for the water potential in a potato. In biology, a cork borer is used to punch holes on an agar plate, to perform experiments such as Well Diffusion assays in microbiology.
