The Egyptian Drill / screw driver

An Egyptian drill/ screw driver had a bow on it , Kinda like a bow-n-arrow. I bet you couldn't guess how they used the bow in the tool though! (Don't read on until you've guessed. ) Well they used the bow in the drill/ screw driver by connecting the bow string to the nail or sharp piece of metal. Next they went back and forth with the bow until they made a hole or some kind of dent in the thing they were drilling .
Doesn't it kind of remind you of the Gieco commercial of the cavemen. A caveman rubbing a bow -n-arrow back and forth, definitely doesn't look like they are trying to drill something. Do you think an Egyptian drill was the only tool they had? Well that was an obvious question but yeah you were probably right, they had more tools than the drill. Like for instance, the sundial, saw, axe and alot more!
