More in Home Improvement
The spoon auger is shaped like a gouge; hollow and rounded on the end. The shell was shaped like a snail and used for drilling holes and countersinking. A spur style bit is a more modern type of bit, with a pointed cutting edge and a spur to shape the rounded hole. The most modern of the examples is an Archimedean-style hole. The twisted metal helps pull shavings out of the hole.
