    Default piercing nozzels

    ok so i was asked to research different piercing nozzles, and was asked to find one that would drill into aircraft bodies, or metal sided buildings. everything ive ever seen you use a hammer to drive the nozzle into whatever your trying to pierce, has anyone ever heard of a drilling piercing nozzle???

    Sounds like the old SPAAT tool the USAF used.
    This looks like a newer version.

    Took about 5 seconds to find on google, try it sometime.

    Save the cash, punch a small hole with the axe and drive a standard piercing through. Aircraft bodies aren't formidable. But the link posted does look nice =).

    When I worked for the WiANG we had a SPAAT tool. The general concensus was it was a piece of crap. We didn't even carry it on any of our trucks.
    Crazy, but that's how it goes
