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.
