I’m considering buy a Drill Doctor.

Who has one and what do you think?

Do they work as advertised? Which model?

I see the latest model can sharpen spade bits, anyone tried it?

My needs would mostly be twist drill bits 1/2’’ and under but I do have a few larger bits. Spade bit I can sharpen with a file but if the new model works well I could be interested in having that.

Thanks for you input.

I bought mine off CL for $50 and really like it. It will do up to 3/4” bits (but not spades). I had a LOT of dull or broken bits when I bought this so it paid for itself the first day I had it. It is very easy to use and will sharpen bits FAST. I would pay full price for a new one if this one ever lays down. Be aware that you can’t sharpen brad point bits with it.

I have the model with the spade bit capability. It works great, just as advertised i sharpened all my spade bits and they are better than new.

I have one of the originals and works great as long as you take time to correctly put the bit in the holder.

Thanks for the replies. About the same as I’ve read elsewhere. Now it’s a matter of deciding which model I want.
