Designed for the professional or busy home workshop, this Drill Doctor will keep drill bits in perfect working order. Capable of sharpening high speed steel, carbide, cobalt, titanium nitride coated and masonry bits, this machine can sharpen both standard 118° and high performance 135° angles. An extra function on this machine is its ability to sharpen self centering split point bits and even convert standard drills to split point ones.
The specially designed alignment system ensures that correct bit geometry is maintained and the bit holding chuck has extra long jaws for an extra secure grip and to prevent smaller drills twisting during the sharpening process. A patented dual cam system on the chuck ensures the contours of the drill tip are followed precisely for accurate sharpening with the minimum amount of metal removed.
The DD500X will sharpen bits of diameter 3/32" up to 1/2" and this capacity can be further extended with the addition of the optional chuck giving a sharpening capacity of up to 3/4" in diameter. A diamond abrasive wheel rotates at 15,000 rpm making sharpening fast and efficient and is easy to replace when required. The industrial grade plastic body is double insulated and impact resistant for greater durability.
This machine is fantastic, easy to use and provides very sharp drill bits.

Machine arrived today. I had to pay more attention to the instruction book than I usually do with new machines but I test sharpened one drill bit and it turned out great, I had about 18 assorted drill bits in my spares box which luckily I had not got around to throwing out, so I got through these in no time at all and all are now usable again. Once you grasp the technique it does its work quite rapidly. I was going to buy a cheap machine off Amazon but I am glad I changed my mind and went for this one

I have to say I was amazed by the amount of power this little tool kicks out. Not only that, it doesn't state this in the description but split point drills can be sharpened using the drill doctor 500. I have yet to try this but, my advise would be to have a good read of the manual, there is more to this product than the website lets on.

Never noticed how much cash I wasted on buying and replacing drills until I started to use this machine. One bit now lasts at least 10 times as long as it used to and that adds up to a lot of dosh.
