Welcome to April’s Tool of the Month, this month a brief look at Awls....
The Awl is a sharp pointed tool with either a round or square shaft. They are generally used for marking holes or scratching lines in timber.
I use mine to accurately mark out holes as the point leaves behind a fine indent which helps guide the drill bit at the start.
That’s all for April, look out for May’s post about scary sharpening in a couple of weeks!
