The work is not as great as it appears, however it is modifiable to be adequate with some effort
The product was hard to use as received. I don't know what the average success rates are for homeowners. Even still, with some work it could be decent (5 stars? A ) fixture can be obtained. It is very difficult to operate thumb screws since they are very tiny. The use of steel on steel clamps for a fixture does not appeal to me. The two new lock screws I made will have large 3/4" heads and be made in brass. With the new locking system, securing your property is simple, easy, My next task was making new lateral adjusting nuts, the originals were very smooth and slippery, for even with the "knurling" they still were marginal. It would also be better if the locking surfaces were improved. It actually allowed us to increase the size of the nuts to . The new aluminum nuts have better knurling and the locking nut can be increased This is the "900". It is now fairly easy to make fine adjustments. In connection with the function, drills can be sharpened with a bit of care if they are handled carefully. 25/64" (I took a broken piece. In the picture it can be seen that the web is quite thick, as it is formed by a broken drill. The fixture results may need to be grinded again in addition to relief grinding, but I wanted to test only with the results. There is no apparent difference between the diameters. As a test, I've used some Aluminum 6160. A 750 rpm drill machine was used. Neither a punch mark nor a center drill is present. Both cutting edges of the drilling seem to have left equal chips. This resulted in an oversize hole ") for the first step Despite this, 200" quickly settled in, and the rest of the depth was unable to penetrate. In this case, the nominal is greater than 001". Although I did not test steel, I imagine the drill would work fine if it was stepped up.
When all is said and done, it is not too bad for a $25 fixture and a couple of hours of work. Here are a few observations, your mileage may vary. I am satisfied with the finished product. This is Mark.

An Idea Worth Sharing The investment seems worth it, but is it worth it? The drill bits that I intend to sharpen will be ground with this device
My drill bits go through like vitamins do to a 60-year-old man (me). As far as I am concerned, this sharpener is great for sharpening bits, which makes sense since it has no other purpose in life. I used to sharpen my bits freehand because I wasn't sure how to do it. I can still see with my hand, but I cannot see as well as I used to. The mounting and setup process Getting the up and down right was a bit challenging, but once I had my second go, I had it. The one I mounted on my grinder was mounted on the side (don't hate me, I know it's not a good idea). While I tried mounting it on the front of my Craftsman grinder, it did not work well. Furthermore, I would have have had to take the sharpen apart when I needed the grinder for another purpose. Multiple tasks are at the top of my list This task was not one of my tasks in the shop, so mounting and removing it would have been a problem. Because the side mount allows me to leave it while I work on other projects, I don't need to move it. Unfortunately, instructions are not clear, so you need a little handyman talent to go along with it. Once you have it mounted and set up, you can sharpen a bit in under 2 minutes and know exactly how the angle and edge should be. believe it makes sense to spend money on this, but if you only sharpen a few bits a month, just buy a new bit and you will save money on You can buy several cheap bits for the same price, if you buy cheap bits. You will be disappointed with the quality of cheap parts. 5 angles can be set on the sharpening jig to match 99 percent of the bit types commonly found in many homeowners' toolboxes. CSK, 880, 680, 590, 490, and 590 are also available to you.

Learning the ropes can be a bit challenging
My belt grinder is set up to use it with the 2x72 sanding belt. In order to achieve the correct overhang, it is crucial to set it correctly A half-inch drill bit has a diameter of half the drill's. It takes a little bit of getting used to. However, once you've mastered it, you'll see how easy it is As far as sharpening drill bits is concerned, it is quite doable. The first time you learn it requires a bit of setting up, sometimes it is easier to just do it by hand. With practice you'll become more proficient.

Sharpens drills with the D4144 drill sharpener
Drill sharpeners like this ones really work, I have sharpened most of my old dull bits with aluminum oxide wheels on a grinder. During my research, I came across many sharpeners that cost much more, but I decided to buy this one at a good price. I modified the screws holding the bit and depth rod with knurled knobs to be more comfortable to hold. The product is good.

You've handled it like a pro! For years, I tried sharpening bits with a drill doctor but I could not make it work smooth
So I mounted up the last bit I had sharpened with it (which was terrible), sharpened it and it worked! I am very pleased with how well it works! I am very satisfied with the product!.

The sharpener is nice for a cheap price
It is a great sharpener once it is set up, especially for larger bits that most quick sharpeners cannot handle. It is convenient to adjust bits for harder materials with the adjustments.
It is also nice to read this book again When you have sharpened each angle a dozen times using your hand and eye, it's time for angle-setting. I'm getting tired of looking at my eyes. He is an old man.

Neither the bit nor the color can be aligned
You will not receive There's more to it than you think. There is no way for you to install it at the same level as It is possible that either one has to be adjusted in height. You have to remove the safety cover from the grinder in order A way to align the bit does not exist. There is no purpose for the alignment piece that's there.
While I do try to use it to align the bit, I get nothing but useless results.
It is not very easy.

This drill bit makes it easier to use As far as I know, it does work, but not on smaller drills in my experience
In general, it works well on drills 1/4" and larger, but for smaller drills, it's better to just buy new ones than to use this product to sharpen them.
