Topic tags/keywords: drill bits bit sharpening doctor

I bought a Drill Doctor and am happy with the results of my first sharpening, however, I was dismayed to find that it will not sharpen brad point bits. It can sharpen standard bits either 118 or 135 degrees, masonary bits. and split point bits….all up to 3/4 inch. The smaller size bits that tend to be 3 inches and shorter are a little difficult to position correctly because they are so short but it is manageable. When you consider the cost of bits now-a-days, this may not be such a bad investment. The model 500X sharpens bits up to 1/2 inch. For more info you can go to drilldoctor.com.

Thanks… I had wondered if they were worth it or not…

I’ve got one and have used it. It does a great job, but I’ve since bought a bunch of aircraft surplas drill bits that have been resharpened. So I’ve got about 20 lbs of drill bits to use up before I need to sharpen again.

Karson, With 20 pounds of drill bits, you might as well sell the “doctor” ! That is unless they are BIG
bits…....

I have a Drill DR 750. I am a pack rat so I had two or three hundred dull bits of various sizes in my old bit drawer under the drill press. I spent one afternoon sharpening most of them and I feel Drill Dr. paid for itself on the first run through my old bits. Now I know why I was keeping them in the ‘Old Bit Drawer”!

See Honey, I told you I would use them sometime!
