Our Rating


Review By: I.Ball

Category: Old Drills

Manufacturer: Clico

Tool Type: Scotch Eye Auger

Model No: 75 Series


The Clico bright Scotch screw eyed auger 75 series drill is a long drill with an eye at the top allowing the user to fit a customised handle (or a piece of wood which is laying around).

The handle is essential as it offers a lot of leverage when twisting the drill.

The tool was a tool used for railway track work and is also used for rough drilling work.

The tool was produced in a large range of sizes from 1/4" to 2" with the tool available in increments of 1/16" from 1/4" to 1".

The length of the Clico scotch eye auger drills 75 series were in the region of 24 inch to 28 inch. One of the 2 inch Clico augers I had measured 28 inch long.

It was possible to buy these tool without the eye although Clico did not guarantee the precision of the shanks if this option was chosen.

Clico were the company which produced the high-end Clifton plane range along with making specialist tooling and drill bits for the aerospace industry, timber workers, cabinet makers and the furniture industry.

Clico (Sheffield) Tooling Ltd ceased trading in 2014, I know Thomas Flinn took on the Clifton part of the business, I am unsure if another company took on the drill side of the business (If anyone has any info on this, I would love to hear from you).
