Here’s an interesting stocking stuffer, probably one of those tools most of us wouldn’t have in our toolbox, but would relish once we’d used one.

Via the Cool Tools review:

I’m giving gimlet sets to a few lucky in-laws this year. I’ve found them to be a great time saver whenever I need a hole drilled and precise placement is critical. A few twists and a lovely pilot hole is exactly where you need it. — Paul

From the Garrett Wade Catalog:

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.
