Ideal for starting screws, auger gimlets have a tapered screw tip and an auger body. The seven sizes in the set range from 2mm to 5mm (5/64" to just over 3/16"), which will handle the pre-drill for screw sizes No.2 to No.10. They are particularly useful for short screws or screws in awkward places, both of which present problems for power pre-drilling. In tempered steel, ferro – blacked in the traditional manner, this set was made specifically for Veritas by a small European maker
(Does not include the Bradawl or screws pictured with the Gimlets)
I found the item I wanted via the web at an American Supplier, I ordered it then a little later I came across The Turners Toolbox and found the same item, in fact it actually looks better, I managed to cancel the item and ordered it from you on Saturday night. I just git home from work on Sunday and checked my e-mail and you responded at 13.40 on the Sunday advising you would ship the item (The Sanding Ball) on Monday. What better service could anyone wish for.
