Hand sharpening was one of the first things I was taught in a vocational school machine shop class, some 30 years ago… I still do it to this day. It is far more versatile than a machine that can only do one thing. There are times/reasons to change the point angle and even more for the clearance angle.
IMHO, it’s something that everyone who uses drill bits should learn.

I have gone so far as to sharpen drill bits “on-site” for other installers/tradesmen with something as crude as a belt sander
