[QUOTE=land_owner;2056046030]I never got the "hang" of sharpening bits. I have tried on the grinder, by hand. Some do. Some don't. I suppose I should watch a video or two to see if there is a method to that madness. I do so little, well, while I am drilling, it is a lot, but very few and far between, so maybe I don't have a "need to know". I am probably even using metal bits on wood and wood bits on metal (or trying to). I know when they get hot they get dull fast and prior to heat they need lubrication...so even this old dog is somewhat "trainable". I have a drill press, a heavy duty drill press that I picked up in a yard sale real cheap, that had no positional vise for the first ten years. I didn't use it much. I found a cheap bi-directional vise that works OK for the little that I do with it.[/QUOTE ] Same here , I screw up 2 bits to get one to cut .
