Should any of the readers of this Magazine have occasion to bore holes in metal and are not equipped with a powder-drill, they will find the drill illustrated by the figure, suitable for such work. It is used in an ordinary bitstock, and up to 1/4" or 3/8" will drill soft steel, iron, brass or other metals. It will not be injured, when boring through wood, by contact with nails, screws, etc., and will bore through any kind of wood without splitting it. For these reasons, it is a very handy tool for the amateur, and, being of low price, should be added to the tool equipment as occasion requires.
