Retainer Wire Installation Video in Pilot Drills Bits

Retention Wire Installation in Pilot Drill Bits

  1. First take the supplied pilot drill and the supplied retaining wire and insert the wire into the first hole closest to the tip.
  2. Insert the wire so that there is 3/8” sticking out then bend down the non-cut side of the wire.
  3. Cut the wire so there is 3/8” of wire sticking out on either side.
  4. Always bend the wire toward the flutes, away from the tip of the pilot drill.
  5. Always only bend the wire so that it is sticking out past the OD of the pilot drill.
  6. Repeat steps 2-5 using the supplied pilot drill and the supplied retaining wire, when inserting the wire into the second hole.
