Gimlets are probably among the most underrated hand tools in the modern workshop. They are easily used for quickly making pilot holes for screws sized from #2 to #9. At this price, these gimlets are a terrific value. They will really speed up your work.
  • Set of seven: 5/64" to 3/16" (2mm to 5mm)
  • Made In France.

I've now purchase a set of these for every family member and friend. The gimlets are great for starting a hole that you don't want to mess up--I highly recommend these to everyone!

Work With A Twist
Reviewed By:   (Bethany, MO) 
What's a gimlet I first thought when someone said he used them in his hand made projects? Well, a quick internet search later yielded Garret Wade as having the highest rated gimlets out there, and I just had to try them. See, I'm an artisan knife maker who does everything by hand. And I drill lots of holes, I mean hundreds a day. These WILL NOT disappoint you. They are arguably one of the most handy tools you can have on your person. I like to carry them on a carabiner so they don't get lost. I had tried a set before these that belonged to a friend but they had trouble getting started and going through deeper wood. Not these little babies. The more pronounced screw on the end of these French made wonders must be the key, because they start with ease, and don't have to be forced in with a hammer like cheaper sets to get them started. Don't be without them. You don't have to be a craftsman to enjoy these, just an everyday person who likes to do a few things for themselves. Need a pilot hole in sheet rock, no problem. Need to start a pilot hole in a precarious position where you'd rather not be carrying an expensive and dangerous power drill, try hanging these on your belt. I'm a homeowner, business owner, a craftsman, and jack-of-all-trades. If you know one of the above, please do him/her a favor and get one of these fantastic sets. It got me hooked on Garret Wade's products. They offer quality over quantity. Get a set of these while you can!

Great Tool
Reviewed By:   (Ruidoso, New Mexico) 
This tool works like cork screw. I had a very small tube that was stopped up. I was able to remove some paper with this tool.

Great Drills for Precise Drilling
Reviewed By:   (Hagerstown, Maryland) 
These dills are great for precision drilling. If you are uncomfortable with the speed of a power drill, these drills are perfect - I am able to slow down and focus on drilling clean, straight, pilot holes. The drills feel solid and I have had no trouble drilling through poplar, chestnut, and red oak. It would be nice is the drills had the but size marked on them, but that's certainly a minor criticism.
