A SelectSmart.com Machinery & Tools Selector by the Drill Doctor, created January 2000.
According to a study by the Professional Tool Manufacturing LLC, more than 90% of do-it-yourselfers are unaware that dull drill bits can be re-sharpened. Paradoxically, many of the same do-it-yourselfers stockpile their old worn drill bits. However, people are beginning to become familiar with the concept of drill bit sharpening thanks to simple and affordable sharpeners, such as the Drill Doctor, which re-sharpen drill bits reliably and, in many cases, better than new. Owners cite the convenience of always having sharp drills available as the top benefit for owning a drill bit sharpener. Disclaimer.
