Generally, the enlarging tools are characterized by a pilot with a diameter slightly smaller than the original hole which keep centered the enlarging tool along the direction of the previously hole drilled. A target diameter of the hole must be indicated as well a thread which is suitable for the enlarging tool dimension and weght.
