The Drill Doctor

drill_doctor.jpgIf you’re like us and you never throw anything away, then you’ve probably got a few coffee cans of old drill bits stashed on some shelf in the workshop. If that’s the case, then it might be worthwhile to invest in a Drill Doctor. The Drill Doctor is a bench top drill sharpening device and it looks like it turns the tedious task of bit sharpening into an easy two step process. From time to time, we go through and sharpen our bits with an angle grinder, but the results are on the pathetic side and never really last that long. According to their website, the Drill Doctor is capable of making any drill bit (even broken ones), as good or better than they were the day the came out of the package.

We’d go into detail about how it does it, but if you’re interested, it would be easier to go straight to the source and check out the Drill Doctor movie.

We’ve been hearing about this tool for a while and are still trying to figure out if it’s worth it or not. It looks cool from the website, but we don’t know anyone who has ever used one. The website has all sorts of testimonials and just about everyone on the Amazon comment boards likes it, so it looks like it would be worth checking out.

The Drill Doctor comes in a number of models, some designed to only handle smaller bits and others capable of dealing with larger bits and masonry ones. The smallest model, which looks good for the DIYer, accepts bits from 3/32” to 1/2 and costs about $50 at Amazon.com. The larger models get up in the $130 range.
