This auger, with its easy-to-sharpen tip, long-life cutting section and deep spiral flute, is well worth the extra cost for those with a lot of long holes to bore. As with all long augers, frequent withdrawing will help to clear the waste and reduce the risk of overheating. Dimensions are 800mm overall, 600mm working, 5/16"(8mm) diameter.

A Tricky tool to masterThe first time I used this tool it wandered off centre by an inch which as I was centre boring a standard lamb was pretty useless. I went in from both ends and of course didn't meet. So my advice is practice before you commit to a job that matters. When this tool arrived it wasn't very sharp either. You'll need a semi-circular diamond needle file to sharpen it. I just hope practice make perfect, it's clearly a skill that isn't supplied with the tool!
