I don’t like the method in the second video. I would avoid touching the front bevel of the cutter just as the guy in the first video suggests. I would clean off any pitch or other residue, but beyond that messing with the front edge is asking for trouble. Those edges should be perfectly perpendicular to the shaft of the bit and they should be at the same depth. Using the Dremel tool runs the risk of messing up one of those properties and then you could have just one blade cutting or just a portion of a blade cutting.
