When you're out in the countryside or you're really restricted for space and you need to drill a hole, a gimlet is your friend. Just twist slowly and it'll drill a nice, clean hole in wood. These high quality tools are hardened to the end of the flute. The screw thread at the tip is specially annealed for extra strength and it'll effectively drag the drill bit into the wood as you twist. Our double spiral flutes are machined, rather than twisted. They allow wood chips to quickly and easily clear the hole. Keep a set in the house, in the kitchen, in your camping kit or with your garden tools. They're an inexpensive, traditional, and extremely useful tool! Made in France.
