        Thanks for that link, Bob. I’ll check those guys out too.

        At this point, and because I find myself working with stainless a good bit, I generally don’t buy anything other than cobalt steel drill bits these days.

              Local fastener shop sells Norseman brand. Most of my twist drills are from them. I’ve been eyeballing drill hog brand. They seem to have some really good prices.

                I have a set of their Black and Gold bits for everyday drilling, they seem to be OK. I always use drill paste on cutting tools so I can't say for sure how long they would stay sharp without it.

                    I found the best way to shapen bits on my old style drill doctor is to place the lightest possible downward pressure on the sharpening wheel and let the wheel do the work.

                      Light pressure, okay, but lightest possible? The abrasive wheel needs enough pressure to cut, or it just rubs and gets hot. I'm thinking that's what you meant, though.

                        You mean a 7" RA Grinder gently clamped in a pipe vise ain't the way to go any more?
                        Sure, it's a little rough on bits under ¼" but it works well above that diameter.

                          Yeah that was it, bad explaining on my part, thanks for correcting me.

                            It's too big and too chancy for us-uns who want to make perfectly round and exact dimensional sized holes.

                              How about usin this 8" with LED lighting on the 1" wide wheels?

                              Gotta drive 6 miles to use the Derex, and I gotta take a bucket of bits to make that trip worth the gas.

                              You want precision learn what drill bushings are and how to use them.
