The drill was delivered by Nemo on the PRIDE Construction Site shortly after the gala held by PRIDE in Wizard Headquarters. Once it was set up, Jonah invited PRIDE to attend as he activated the machine, enacting the final phase of his plan.
When the Runawaysinfiltrated the PRIDE Construction Site, they found the drill and the giant hole it had dug. Chase Stein and Gert Yorkes went to the control panel in an attempt to stop it, but as they could not find a way to do so, Stein used the Fistigons on the commands, frying them and stopping the machine, which triggered an alarm.
Following the confrontation between PRIDE and the Runaways, Dale and Stacey Yorkes returned to the PRIDE Construction Site to inspect the hole created by the drill.
