NEWS – Have you ever seen a tool like this one? Me neither which is why I thought it was interesting when I stumbled upon it during one of my recent multi-tool hunting surf sessions. This tool from Weyland is called a scotch eye auger drill. With this carbon steel tool, you can quickly drill a 1-inch diameter hole and then you can make the perfect sized peg for that hole using the same tool. As you can imagine, a tool like this one will become an invaluable companion on your outdoor adventures. Take it with you when you go camping so that you can make a primitive shelter, a ladder, a stool, a fish trap, and more. The Weyland tool is priced at $38.95 on Amazon.

  2. it’s a weird, strange world

    one the projects i’m working on is “bushcraft” drill for an acquaintance…a bit and a driver

    the bit…https://www.amazon.com/Speedbor-1877239-Tools-Drilling-6-Piece/dp/B00LLGRQZY?th=1…i do like this type better than the average auger

    the driver…well that’s the rub
    a lot of stuff works…ratchets, bit drivers, tap wrenches and t-handle breaker bars
    however they are all bright and shiny, not very rustic

    this a clever idea but i suspect that whanging on the socket with a stick will be the death of good idea
    that weld looks a bit sketchy

    after all that the guy who wants it makes “rocket” stoves from logs or stumps…one hole down and one intersecting hole across

    makes a heckuva fire

    Check it out on Amazon. You should withdraw this review and make a comment as to why you are doing. I assume that this is a Chinese knockoff of the original product.

  4. Is the user supposed to grab onto the sharp auger threads to smack the cylindrical cutter over a stick to make the 1″ diameter peg? Perhaps it comes with a protective cover/handle?
