I have three bradawls in different sizes, two of them have a screw thread too, the smallest is perfect for dolls house pins

A bradawll with a screw thread is called a gimlet.  We are getting into antique tools here!  I sometimes use a hatpin if other items have hidden themselves, which they do all the time!

Yes, of course! My mother had a gimlet, which she used a lot. Where have they all gone? I haven`t seen one for ages.
