I have one of those Drill Doctors I bought years ago. It works very well and I still very easy to use. I only use it on regular ground drill bits. Not for Brad points or bullet points.

That is a pretty neat set up, I love to see people use their head to come up with new and different ways of doing things. Another thought on the jig here, make the side grinder holder on the correct angle to sharpen the bits, and use the drill press to sharpen the bits.

Brilliant, amazing there is not a product like that on the market.

I follow Pinterest and a lot of the European guys come up with some pretty ingenious solutions in countries where tools are not that easy to buy.

Great ideas. I have a Wolverine sharpening system and the flat platform has a V groove for sharpening bits. I used it once and it seemed to be OK. Got a bunch of bits to sharpen. Got it on the To-Do list.

i don't see it working any better than holding a spinning drill bit on the grinding wheel
my neighbor has a drill doctor that has up to 1" capacity, neatest thing since sliced bread

I am on Pinterest a lot also, they do come up with some really interesting tools and jigs on there. I also watch a bunch of youtube videos about new and home made tools, it is really cool to see new stuff like that.

Drill Dr x3


It works great, when I am bored I will set up and sharpen bits. The drill bit set from Grizzly are pretty pathetic, but sharpened right they drill perfectly

There is no app for experience
