Notes to answerer
Asker: Gracias, Slothm. Sólo una pregunta: ¿No debería la palabra "probe" estar incluida en el nombre de la máquina?

Asker: Envié tu sugerencia a mi cliente con una nota, y espero que el revisor la apruebe. Esta es una máquina, no un taladro manual, y los orificios son para instalar piezómetros para medir la cota del agua en la presa, por lo que no quedé totalmente convencida. Si el cliente lo aprueba, los puntos serán tuyos. ¡Gracias!
