We know this isn't a screw or a tack!
It is however very useful for fitting both - steel point (extremely sharp!) with a hardwood handle
Perfect for positioning and starting small tacks & pins that you can't hold and hammer at the same time
First use in soft wood the shaft pulled straight out of the handle. No sign of epoxy and clearly the friction fit was useless. After keying the shaft with a file and a dollop of epoxy glue the awl is now an excellent toolbox addition and is surprisingly effective. At £3 something, perhaps we shouldn’t expect too much.
Strong blade and the handle fits my hand perfectly, it got a lot of use, would recommend 👍
This fits my small hands wonderfully. It also fits in a hole just by my lathe so it doesn't get lost in the shavings.
Ideal tool for marking and inserting an opening for the screw to enter.
