Explanation: eurodicautom explains in its mining section that guns can be used to drill
ex=mud guns= fucili del fango or stem guns= lance a vapore
i fail to see what scalopped means in such a case because steam or mud become the drilling device itself and a liquid or a gas can hardly be dentellato
guess you got part of the explaination but i'm not satisfied
hope it helps a bit
