I've had a Drill Doctor for many years. Like several others here, I tried to get the hang of sharpening a drill on a grinding wheel. Didn't work for me. Drill Doctor works great! Have saved many a drill bit and made drilling a hole a pleasure rather than a drudge.

I've had a Drill Dr. for a long time too. Like some others said, it takes a little practice and following the instructions exactly to get a good tip on your bits. It has done a great job on most bits I have attempted to sharpen and probably only did so-so on some cheap bits I abused.

Get one and you won't be sorry.

One of my first jobs when I was a young man was in a machine shop and the first thing I learned was to sharpen drill bits by hand with a bench grinder, did it all my eye too . Its not that hard once you get the hang of it.

I read its a family owned company in Ashland Oregon , employing 100 workers . Is it a counterfeit , I dont know , Lowes price is 99 dollars for the same . thats a significant price difference .
