Every Drill Doctor is assembled in the USA from domestic and imported parts and comes with a 3 year warranty.Although drill-bit sharpening systems often fail to live up to our expectations, we're here to bear witness for the truth of the Drill Doctor's claims: it really does sharpen old bits in just a couple of minutes. The 500SP (also known as the Tradesman) works on conventional, split-point, and masonry bits. Both models--the 500SP and the Professional 750SP--allow you to choose between a 118- and 135-degree sharpening angle. Operation is fairly simple, but to make sure no one has trouble figuring it out, the Drill Doctor comes with a how-to video. Anyone who frequently wears down drill bits is going to appreciate the savings this handy machine can offer. Using sharp bits instead of dull ones also increases the life of your drill, because sharper bits require less work to make the same hole.http://mistlondon.com/userfiles/cuisinart-em-100-espresso-machine-manual.xml

We only wish we'd found the Drill Doctor sooner. --Brian Trinen The point-style control handle allows for conventional point, split point, and masonry drill bit sharpening. The super-abrasive and long-lasting diamond wheel sharpens high-speed steel, cobalt, and carbide drill bits with a precalibrated drill bit length setting. A steel stop plate assures consistent and maintenance-free drill bit grind-depth control and alignment. You can sharpen ordinary standard drill bits into fast-cutting, self-centering, split-point drill bits or change the point angle to meet your specific needs (118 or 135 degrees).To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

BJM 5.0 out of 5 stars I usually wind up buying a whole pack (10) of the most popular sizes I use and set them aside after they get dull. I have several different drill sharpeners; you know the type one would use with a grinder. Gotta tell ya.I am now one happy camper when it comes to sharpening my old dull bits. It works just like the provided video shows, not just once but each and every time. Anyone who can't sharpen a bit properly with the Drill Doctor probably shouldn't be handling a power tool in the first place. I mean it is virtually moron proof. Loosely calculating the number of useless drill bits I have accumulated over the years I figure this tool will more than pay for itself. Looking for the right tool to sharpen your drill bits?.Buy the Drill Doctor, I promise you will never look back. Oh by the way, a little background on me. I am a retired General Contractor and an active hobbyist. I own 6 cordless drills, 3 corded drills, and 2 drill presses (what can I say I have a weakness for good tools!http://obraz-tlt.ru/userfiles/cuisinart-em-100-manual.xml

) so I guess it would be fair to say I have had some experience working with drills and drill bits.At first, I sharpened about 50 135 degree cobalt bits, which were dull. I tried each of them in a piece of wood (for testing purposes) and they drilled like butter. However, I got to a job site and used some of them in metal and they did not drill well at all. I then realized I had not sharpened them well enough. I find it works better when you use 6 to 8 more than the recommeneded rotations when shapening the bits. This thing is great. It takes a little practice and I now keep a piece of thin gauge metal or aluminun next to my work bench to test each bit after sharpening. It does one well to read and follow the directions. I am just sorry that I have thrown away so many expensive cobalt bits over the years. Also, I had a problem when I went to reverse the diamond wheel. The wrench that was supplied with my drill doctor would not fit and it broke the plastic piece underneath the wheel. I called drill doctor and they sent a UPS pick up order at no charge and they they also sent me a brand new drill doctor. I expected for them to blame me and give me a hard time. Boy was I surprised at the outstanding customer service at this company. I love this thing and its one of my favorite tools.I did my whole index box of drills in one sitting.couldn't put it away!I've ruined bits with it by trying to sharpen them, and instead get wrong angles on them, and end up grinding way down. The chucks are somewhat flimsy, alignment is difficult, and results are inconsistant. It is one of the few tools I've ever bought that I would never use again. It would be better to simply buy new drill bits- I do now.Figuring the cost of new drill bits that I saved, I have literally already paid for the tool. This is a great addition to any shop that has frequent use for SHARP drill bits, and I am pleased with the ease of use and setup.

I recommend this sharpener to anyone who wants to save money and time.Never again! This tool is really simple to set up and use. I hate to think about the time I've wasted using dull bits. It takes just seconds to touch up a bit. My friends now ask me to sharpen their bits. I wish I had had a Drill Doctor ten years ago.It is fast to setup and use so you'll use it often, which is a good thing as a tool is only as good as its cutting edge. It does take two hands to operate; one to move the tool bit holder and the other to anchor the tool itself, but not big deal. Recommended.Will pay for itself in drills you won't need to replace.Sorry, we failed to record your vote. Please try again At the time when I ordered it, is was not available at our local tool stores. I suspect that the model DD750X would for some be a better choice, because of its capability of sharpening larger drill bits. Apparently the DD500X model can be upgraded to a 750X by purchasing the larger bit holder. I do recommend this product.Sorry, we failed to record your vote.

As a machinist, I have been sharpening twist drills for over 45 years, and they look pretty good. Not really important in wood, but it makes a big difference in metal, especially when drilling a hole to be tapped. If you follow the directions in the Drill Doctor videos, you can't go wrong.

Forget about the reviews from idiots that either don't read directions or just can't follow directions. With a SLIGHT downward pressure and a constant clockwise twist, the motor just hums along and gradually produces fantastic results. You can't rush the job by applying force. It is imperative that you make an even number of passes. I have paid for the 500X after just one week of sharpening broken bits I had given up on. I think the 700 series has features that the average person will never use. After sharpening just three big bits, the 500X optional chuck will have paid for itself.After reading and following the manufacturer's directions TO THE LETTER, the Drill Doctor completely destroyed 5 of my bits to the point that they are completely useless. I went over and over the directions, YouTube videos and online help to make sure that I was not doing something wrong but I was doing everything correctly. Thank God Amazon has a great return policy. I'll just go back to hand sharpening on my grinder. Please try again later. From the United StatesAs a machinist, I have been sharpening twist drills for over 45 years, and they look pretty good.

Drilon 5.0 out of 5 stars A normal sane mechanic would drill them out nice and slow using lots of lubrication to try and not dull the bits. Now I just go full blast and take out tons of material quickly, dull the bit fast, resharpen, and repeat. It's suprisingly faster and has less fatigue on your hands. This sharpens bits sharper than how they come out of the box and can even repair broken bits, depending on how they broke. Huge time saver and money saver.Please try again later. Please try again later. Mike K 5.0 out of 5 stars In my profession I use a lot of drill bits and after a while it can get quite expensive having to buy new ones to replace the broken or dulled one. Over all this product is awesome. It’s going to save me a lot of money that’s for sure. Haven’t tried a masonary bit yet.Please try again later. Please try again later. Jeff Folden 5.0 out of 5 stars It didn't lose power or make a mistake. As many others have said, read the manual and watch the video before using it. The video shows the real product and the alignment marks that the manual can't quite show. A couple of things I learned to make it easier to use, first the manual says to count the number of turns on the chuck. I discovered that it is easier to listen to the grinding wheel and when it makes very little noise on a full rotation, the bit is even on both cutting edges. Second, if you have some bits like mine you may have to align and sharpen 3 or 4 times to get the proper edge. This is not a fault of the machine, just sharpening bits on a bench grinder. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a quality bit sharpener that is easy to use and does a great job.Please try again later. Please try again later. Nevada Woodchuck Top Contributor: Woodworking 5.0 out of 5 stars I decided to get the Drill Doctor rather than replace a lot of bits. The instructions are clear and direct, and the machine itself is very easy to use, just follow the instructions.

I keep it handy, and sharpen bits as I use them (rather than doing a bunch in one session). I didn't realize how dull many of my bits had become, but the vast majority were. I could definitely tell the difference after sharpening the first one, and it cut through some hard maple without any forcing. I use the 118 degree setting for my bits, but wanted to be able to have the 135 degree option for drilling in tool quality metal for making lathe tools. All in all, I would recommend the Drill Doctor for anybody trying to decide which way to go, especially if they have a wood shop.Please try again later. Please try again later. Stephen Larsen 5.0 out of 5 stars Eight months ago I screwed deck boards to my trailer frame (to enclose it on the front and sides). That was the last staw for me. I spent a lot of time this winter (an indoor winter in Michigan this year) sharpening all of my bits (close to 400)--wood and metal. Some thoughts. 1. Yes, there is a learning curve. I read the directions, and then I read them again. The first few bits I sharpened were done with the manual open. 2. Mine came with a DVD--I watched it at least 3 times. 3. Ya, in the first few months I ruined a dozen or so bits, and had a few that did not sharpen well. 4. The more you use this sharpener, and get the technique down, the better the job it does, and I've gotten pretty fast and good with this thing.Please try again later.

Despite some other reviewers comments, the instruction manual is comprehensive, easy to understand and fully explains the operation of the Drill Doctor. I had no trouble setting up for 118 or 135 degree point angles. It took about 1 hour and 15 mins in total. After, they all were sharp, exactly to specification and cut through wood and steel like they were brand new. I've always tried to hand grind my drills or bought new. While they were fairly sharp and drilled OK after my hand grinding, they certainly looked hand-ground and weren't like a new drill bit with a well-defined chisel edge, relief angle, even cutting edges and a perfect point angle. With a couple minutes work in the Drill Doctor, I have perfect bits. Points to note: - The 135 deg point angle setting is the one notch to the right of the 12 o'clock positioned 118 degree notch in the alignment port. The other 10 deg notches are to fine tune the chisel edge and relief angles, which 99 times out of a 100, you won't need to adjust. - Make sure the spring steel jaws in the alignment port snap into the drill at its narrowest point across the width of the flutes. Rotate the drill bit as required to make this happen. This ensures the correct angular position of the bit in the chuck for grinding. - After finger snugging the bit in the chuck in the alignment port, remove it and hand tighten. That way the drill doesn't move from its perfect alignment for grinding. - Keep rotating the chuck in the grinding port with light pressure down and keeping the chuck against the cam pin, grinding until the grinding sounds stop occurring. The bit at that point is fully ground. - Eventually the grinding wheel will wear down. After doing all my 34 drills, I could feel that the roughness of the grinding wheel was less that the other unused end, but it was still easily capable of grinding bits. - Grinding dust does spill out onto the bench through the gaps around the transparent cover under the grinding wheel.

After all my bits, I had a tiny heap on the table, with more inside the machine. I cleaned the Drill Doctor before putting it away, per the instructions. - Don't mash the bit into wheel, especially for making the split point. Treat it gently and pulse it until the sound stops. I've now got a way to have sharp drill whenever I need them. I always had to make do or go buy yet another drill bit. The Drill Doctor is not a cheap tool, but it is well-made and sturdy. Once you have it, you can really appreciate its value. No regrets at all. I will never need to buy bits again until I've worm them down to an unusable length and by then, that will have paid back the cost of the Drill Doctor many times over!Please try again later.

They also just wear down over time, becoming dull as well as brittle. Construction teams and craftsmen alike just roll the costs of new bits into the production costs of a project. They also save you the time it takes to purchase new bits and keeping your drill bits sharp adds to the overall quality of your finished product. Additional Features 100-Grit Rough Diamond Cutting Wheel Left Hand Chuck Replacement Parts Some Alternatives 1. Drill Doctor 350X Review 2. TOOLSTORM Multi-Function Electric Knife Sharpener Review 3. Tormek T-8 Review 4. Mechanical Alternatives Review Every wheel is rated for approximately 200-uses before it requires replacement. You can purchase the 100-grit option separately. Their design helps guarantee that your bits will hold up for many sharpening sessions without losing quality or durability. They can also re-sharpen the split point bits that are starting to go dull. With either the DD750X or the DD500X you can create the bit you need even when they aren’t locally available. Both have strengths and weaknesses, and while we recommend the Drill Doctor DD750X over the Drill Doctor DD500X, it’s worth looking at both options to determine which one is best for you and your workshop.

They are suitable for all but the densest materials. 135-degree bits are a good choice, however, for metal projects and other high-density tasks. The ability to add a split-tip to 135-degree bits also makes them more useful for a wider variety of tasks. It’s cutting wheel can be set at any angle between 115 degrees and 140 degrees, which allows you to use and sharpen non-standard bits. While this is undoubtedly an advanced function, it is critical for anyone who wants to save money on replacement costs for non-standard drill bits. You don’t need to trade out chucks to go up or down in size, both sharpeners have a wide range of bits they can sharpen with a single chuck. In fact, DrillDoctor offers a.However, it is an additional purchase. Purchasing an additional chuck to operate it takes you a good portion of the way to the price of DD750X. Believe it or not, drill sharpeners are also a tool with a sizable learning curve. That is one advantage of being a less flexible tool. The fewer things a tool can do, the fewer things you have to learn to make it do. It’s also more likely to be used if the learning curve is an issue simply because it’s easier to get used to and there is less reading required. The Drill Doctor DD750X is a more complicated, and therefore more intimidating, machine. If you want a transport bag for the Drill Doctor DD500X you need to buy it separately. Fortunately, these accessories are compatible with both machines. However, if you need something a little rougher you can get the 100-grit wheel and trade it out with the 180-grit option just like you were replacing it. But, you may find other uses for this rougher option. However, it’s simple two-step process really can’t be beaten for ease of use. It makes up for this by having other sharpening options. The DrillDoctor’s standard power cord is 6ft long, the ToolStorm comes with a 6.6ft cord, exactly 2 meters.

Having that guarantee in hand also helps to justify the higher price point on this system vs some of the others. If you’re interested in a hand-operated system look for something that also uses a diamond cutting wheel and other durable materials. Categories.
