Henry Eckert 7 pce Auger Gimlets
These auger gimlets sets are simply amazing quality for their price, they are on their own…
Ideal for starting screws, these excellent auger gimlets have a tapered screw tip and an auger body.
The seven sizes in the set are 2mm, 2.5mm, 3mm, 3.5mm, 4mm, 4.5mm, 5mm, which will handle the pre-drill for screw sizes #2 to #9. They are particularly useful for short screws or screws in awkward places, both of which present problems for power pre-drilling.
They are very light to use and manoeuvre. The drill pulls itself into the wood due to the tapered screw tip and the deep auger guarantees good chip removal. In addition, their slightly tapered shape leads to greater tensile strength of screw joints. Faster, more accurate & more convenient than an electric drill.
In tempered steel, ferro-blacked in the traditional manner, they are made for us by a small French manufacturer.
Packaged in a small cardboard box.
Every shop should have a set, perhaps a second set for a fellow woodworker… See them here.
Made in France.

Beer o’clock came early that day… More on the new tool soon. These guys have been pouring sand cast bronzes for many decades, there…
Our White Bronze Chisel/Flush Plane has been around us in various forms for around a year now. Our pattern maker is over it, too many changes! He uses Jelutong wood to do the initial shape, changes are easy if you are reducing the shape but not so easy to increase the shape. After we both…
