Just for additional info, for brad point and forstner bits, I have
been successful so far using a medium and fine diamond sharpening
cards. They work fast and produce a great edge on carbide router bits
and turning chisles as well.
I have a drill doctor. My parents got it for me for a birthday present.
Now I would not be without it. No it doesn't do brad or forstner bits,
that's okay. It keeps my carbon steel bits incredibly sharp. Better than
new in fact! I sharpened everything. Wow!

Sounds like a lot of support for the doctor. Can anyone explain to me how
it can grind the relief, I've always been curious about that. I've never
seen one in action, and can't comprehend from the pictures how they would
work. Seems to me it uses a pencil sharpener approach, and there is no
relief. I'd be mucho grateful to anyone who can set me straight.
Thanks for the reply! That helps some, but still having trouble visualizing
grinding the relief. IME sharpening drill bits, the grinding angle changes
in addition to following the relief. But if you guys say it gets it, I'll
accept that and move on with my life.
I see said the blind man as he picked up his hammer and saw. Very cool, and
copies the motion well. Thanks for the education, I've been puzzled by that
for longer than I care to admit.
A tip of the hat, and on to the next mystery of life.
