Anyone know a good resource for how to sharpen a set of auger bits for my brace.

I bought a set on full set but some of them could not be more dull.

Stanley had a pamphlet out many years ago that told how. You might Goggle it. I have or had a paper copy somewhere, but that isn’t much help.

I use diamond paddles and jeweler’s files on mine with good results. Just don’t remove any of the circumferential material. How’s that for a big word fer ya?
