The auger is a hand tool for drilling holes, consisting of a crank and a drill or bit. The 20 to 50 cm long handle (see nave borer and pump rip bit) is made of wood, sometimes metal.
The auger is used by many woodworkers; hence the variety in names.
See also the breast auger, gimlet, bell drill, bung borer, cooper's bung borer, clog maker's drill, first bit.
