Mueller B101 Machine can be used with a wide choice of cutting tools for wet or dry tapping almost every popular size and material of pipe.  It will drill, tap and insert corporation stops in mains under pressure.   A recent addition to the B-101 is a chip flushing valve to help keep chips from drilling and tapping operations out of the main.   Because of their simplicity and durable construction, the machines need little maintenance.  And with minimum instruction, even inexperienced personnel can quickly make leak-tight connections with this machine.

The B-101 comes complete with a ratchet handle, large (fits between the saddle and pipe) and small (fits between the machine and saddle) saddle gaskets, round link chain for 12" and smaller pipe, chain hooks/washers/nuts, open end wrench for E-Z inserting tools, box wrench for chain hook nuts and tool retaining screw, a body cleaning chisel, blow off valve, instruction manual, cutting grease, and a sturdy metal carrying case.
