Gun Drill

(15 customer reviews)


We are super happy to be able to offer gun drills. A gun drill is one of Trent’s go to tools. It is useful for starting a hole in a hollow form or long bores in any project (such as a lamp). These gun drills are specifically designed with woodturners in mind – get yours today!

Available in a set (Gun Drill with Handle) or you can purchase the handle on it’s own and source your own gun drill.

The Gun Drill: Brand NEW and perfect for use in wood. Carbide tipped, 3/8″ Drill with a 3/4″ shank, 12″ long. Comes with TWO Gun Drill Stoppers.

The Handle: Designed to be used with most standard gun drills that have a 3/4″ shank (which is standard). This handle adapts those gun drills to be used by hand. It has a 3/4″ bore and on the backside of the handle is tapped for 1/4″ female NPT. I attach a ball valve and my air compressor quick connect fitting to the back of my handle. (COLOR OF HANDLE MAY VARY)

Additional Information about the Set: The set comes complete with mini ball valve to turn it on and off. It has a female 1/4″ npt so you can attach any style compressor quick change. The set also comes complete with TWO Gun Drill Stoppers.

    Saw this used in one of Trent’s videos. Combined with a gun drill bit this is an effective tool.

  2. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Wanted one of these since I took Trent’s workshop — quality tool!

  3. JoAnn (verified owner)

    Works like a charm, just as described.

  4. John McCarty (verified owner)

    Before the gun drill, I was starting my hollow forms with a drill bit in the tail stock. This is so much easier!

  5. Ric Meister (verified owner)

    Really the tool I didn’t realize could be better than a standard auger drill. Paired with compressed air it’s also handy for cleaning of my lathe bed and floor.
    Again Trent dreams it and makes it happen!!

    You handled the business professionally which is getting rarer.

    Neat tool. Hard to find elsewhere.

  8. Barry Popick (verified owner)

    Tool looks well made. Unfortunately I have not had a chance to use it yet

  9. Mark Wheeler (verified owner)

    I wish I had this tool years ago. So straight forward, fast and easy to use.

    I have found that Trent provides great tools that work. The Gun Drill centers easily and does it’s job perfectly. If is spins on the lathe, I can hit a hole and go as deep as I want to go. Trent’s gouges are also excellent. I like the shape of the flute and the depth of the wings I get on a long grind. No question about the quality from Trent.

    High Quality tool. Makes my job easier in defining the bottom of my vessels/avoiding the indent that my Forstner bits leave

  12. Mark Dusek (verified owner)

    Awesome tool!

  13. Tim Tucker (verified owner)

    How many horror stories have you heard about someone getting a forstner bit stuck in a form? Don’t use one! Use this instead. It is the fastes and easiest wat to get your pilot hole drilled.

  14. Bill J. (verified owner)

    Better than expected

    Stands behind his product. Had a small glitch in the threads and had a new part in days. Love it. This works great and built with quality.
