Whether you're a professional tradesperson or a serious hobbyist, you know that a dull drill bit means jobs take longer. Additionally, dull bits can result in lower-quality work, damaged work materials, and shortened drill life. But unlike the relatively straightforward task of sharpening flat blades, sharpening drill bits by hand can be a difficult and cumbersome task. This is what makes the intuitive, easy-to-use Drill Doctor sharpener so useful.
With the Drill Doctor 500X, you simply align the bit by setting it against the stop and locking it in place. To sharpen the bit, you turn the chuck an even number of half turns, depending on the size of your bit. As you sharpen, long jaws hold the bit precisely in place, and jaw guides eliminate jaw twisting on small bits. This secure alignment system ensures that you maintain accurate bit geometry and don't damage the integrity of your tools. Once the bit is sharpened, the Drill Doctor 500X gives you the option of making a unique BACK-CUT spilt-point bit that gives your bit an extra-narrow chisel point, making it faster to penetrate and less likely to wander on the material you are drilling in to. Additionally, the drill point splitting port offers a "Push to Stop" design that will prevent over-splitting the bit point.
The same chuck can be used to sharpen popular bit sizes from 3/32- to 1/2-inch, whether they are English, metric, or letter gauge bits. The Drill Doctor 500X sharpens a wide variety of bit types, from high-speed steel, carbide, cobalt, TiN-coated, masonry, and split-point bits for working with metal.
