    Default Sharpening Drill Bits

    Been out in the workshop this morning sharpening Drill Bits for a friend.I have been using a General model 825 it works pretty good.Also done the smaller ones by hand the gadget doesnt seem to work well in sizs less than 1/4 so i do them by hand.He also had a few Spade bits also did these by hand i really like to do this sort of thing.Does anyone else have this kind of drill sharpening attachment and how does it work for you?

    I got a drill bit sharpener about 5 years ago for xmas from my sister-n-law. I did not think it would work but boy was I wrong. I love it. Will sharpen up to 1/2" bits and it quick and easy. It has saved me a ton.

    I have one like the General 825 that I inherited from my Dad. Haven't used it in many years. I've got a Drill Doctor now. Love it. It makes sharpening drill bits easy and quick.

    His link shows that it is a Drill Doctor.

    Personally,I got used to using the belt sander at work, mostly for large bits. Been doing it for quite a few years so it's a piece of cake for me. Split points are a bit harder to do,but still come out pretty decent.

    I was given a Drill Doctor years ago. I gave it away, took too long to get the bit in the holder. I'm just use to doing it by hand.

    I used to sharpen my own but after years of not making my living in a shop,,,, Sad to say I have lost the ability to sharpen like I used to. I can stll do little ones but the biggins mess me up.

    I can't seem to get the Drill Doctor to work on the smaller bits. It works great on 1/4" and up.

    Probably operator error, just need to stay at it. My index is full of stubby bits < 1/4" :')
