Ideal for starting screws, auger gimlets have a tapered screw tip and an auger body. They are exceptional value for their quality. Every shop should have a set.
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. The auger chip removal stops your workpiece wood splitting.
In tempered steel, ferro-blacked in the traditional manner, this set was made for us by a small French maker.
