Japanese Push Drill. Now with 9 drill bits!

The hollow-point drills cut holes in papers, leathers, and binders board. Pressure on the wooden shaft causes drill to spin and cut hole. Set of 9 interchangeable drills: 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 3.5, 4, 4.5, 5.0 mm. A marvelous tool worth the price.

Note: The 3mm drill comes in the push drill. All other bits are individually bagged.
