Best drill sharpener that’s easy to use


I would like to think they can learn. I think I have just about persuaded my father not to rotate the drill around its axis while it is against the grinder, but old habits die hard.


I have one of these

It looks to be very similar in design to the Drill Doctor, but it’s a hell of a lot cheaper. I find it very easy to use, but as they say ‘horses for courses’, I previously had a Proxon which was incredibly difficult to set up, by comparison the Sealey one is, as I said, very easy.



I have one and don't get on with it. It might be me though but I did it exactly like the instruction book and YouTube said to and still no luck.

Some drills have a non standard flute spiral, my 350x does not do my dorma bits very well, there the ones with gold colour rather than black, the flue/spiral is i guess more aggressive at removing swaff faster. that means the drill doctor sharpens it all at the wrong angles no matter what you do with it.

I got a drill doctor and get on very well with it. For me the trick is to keep turning and cutting until it's virtually stopped taking anything off. If you just give it a few revolutions it cuts the tip down but not the metal behind so the tip is no longer the highest point


I have the Drill Doctor and it took me a few attempts but I now have all my drill sharpened and as said you need to keep turning until it stop taking material off.
