Bradawls are a mainstay for carpenters and other trades that work with wood. In an instance, a bradawl can create a small hole, sometimes prior to drilling, for the insertion of a screw or nail. The inset that is created allows the nail or screw to sit flush with the wood’s surface.
Bradawls help tradespeople get a professional finish by reducing the risk of wood splitting, which is particularly a risk when working with thinner pieces of wood. The bradawl range includes those with a rounded chisel point and those with a tapered square blade. You can view our bradawl range here.
