What did i use--i can't remember the tool????????
 
I bored a hole in a concrete wall 15 years ago,and i made a perfect round 1
" hole.Not any burrs, smooth inside -busted out the other side, but no matter.I have looked everywhere in my tools and can't --now come up with the suitable i used before. Can you point me in the right dircetion on this, the hole is for 1" copper water line.thanks for what you may have bob s:(

because it busted out the other side, I'm guessing you used a hammer drill. If it was really smooth probably a Quad tipped bit ( a concrete bit with 4 carbide cutters instead of the usual 2)

Or you can use a dry core bit if you want it SUPER smooth

Does this[ bottom core bit come in sizes to fit the standard, 1/2" drill motor, and where do i find this one?At a hardware maybe? It could have also been the prior 4-cutter type.....but---- yes it was probably not drilled by me .But rather, the new furnace guys, that installed a cable thru this particular hole.No wonder i can't find these in my tool chest, theres everything else in there BUT! these

Thank you Mr Chips!! please let me know,

for the size you need you should be able to find something that will fit in a standard 1/2 chuck, but for anything bigger you'll probably need an SDS, max, or spline. These core bits can be a bit pricey though, so you might want to call around and see if you can rent one if you only have a couple holes

In addition to rent a core bit, you can buy an economical one, and pay attention if it is sharp enough.

There is always the old star drill, tapped with a hammer and rotated between strikes, works very well and are inexpensive.
