1/4" - 3/8" pilot drills with retention wires

Our custom line of retention style drill bits are designed to catch the coupon or slug you have cut out of the pipe. Our pilot drill bits have dual holes in the flutes so you can run 2 sets of retention wire to ensure 100% positive retention of the coupon. Proper installation of the wire is necessary to obtain 100% capture of the coupon. Install instructions come with the pilot drills.
