Dealing with a deviated hole

Multiple factors can play a role in causing this to happen, such as rock formation in the ground that you are drilling, the type of bit used, the weight on the bit, type of rods and tooling, the set-up of the drill rig and its location, among others.

Fortunately, equipment and accessories are now available to help prevent or correct hole deviation. These include wedges, measurement tools and more.
