Star-M Gimlets & Hand Augers
Limited quantities available.
There was a time when every cabinetmaker's tool chest would have had a set of gimlets, yet today they are not an easy tool to find. Star-M gimlets are modern high precision gimlets that incorporate the best of Japanese manufacturing prowess. The Star-M gimlets are the finest quality gimlets that we are aware of being available today. For the larger sizes, we carry Star-M hand augers. Hand Augers accomplish the same thing as gimlets, but are more similar to a Jennings pattern brace bit than they are to a gimlet. Either way, you will get a clean, crisp, and accurate hole from any Star-M boring product.
The STAR-M Corporation in Miki, Japan, is specialized in the production of high quality bits and accessories for boring holes in wood. All STAR-M products are actually manufactured in Japan to a very high standard of quality.
