"Auger" in context

An auger is a tool used to bore holes in wood, masonry, and soil. It is an ancient tool, used since prehistoric times by peoples around the world. The auger consists of a two or three-fluted shaft with a cutting blade on the end, which cuts into the material as it is slowly rotated clockwise. A handle is fixed to the shaft for leverage and control. Augers have evolved over time, with some specialized models for specific uses, such as mud augers, earth augers, and drain augers. They are also available in a range of sizes, from small hand drills to large industrial drill rigs.
