No it is not used to clean out drilled holes. It has absolutely nothing to do with holes when used for it's intended purpose!

Andy,They are not white dots. Something in the lighting makes them appear to be white. There are 4 rows, and they are stainless steel like the tip is. Modern ones are completely stainless, I think! No paint envolved. Clue: It takes several of these to perform its task!
