    Default pvc pipe tool

    Sometime within the last 3 years on either TOH or Ask TOH Rich showed a tool that could be chucked into a drill that would drill out an old fitting glued into the flared end of a PVC pipe so that a new fitting could be glued in. I tried searching the site but can't find anything when searching for "PVC tools","PVC pipe tools", or "repair PVC pipe". Can anybody shed some light on what this tool is called and where it can be purchased?

    Thanks

    It's called a "ram bit."

    Now that you know what it's called, it should be easy to find.
    The "Senior Member" designation under my name doesn't mean I know a lot, it just means I talk a lot.I've been a DIYer since I was 12 (thanks, Dad!). I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
