The gimlet is an elegant tool that allows drilling holes in wood without the use of a power tool. Perfect for all sorts of jobs in the garden where you don't have an electrical outlet nearby. Each gimlet is hardened to the end of the flute for strength and durability. A traditional, inexpensive, and indispensable set of tools for the home, shop, and garden. Simply push the tip of the gimlet into the wood you want to drill and turn. The threads will pull the gimlet right through the wood. For most jobs you can easily drill by hand, but you can also thread a screwdriver, or similar tool, through the handle for added torque. Made in France.
