When I Google this topic I get a variety of sharpening tips most using
"diamond paddles" which I've found at Rockler and other sites for a
reasonable price ($14.99 for 3 grits). I'm wondering if you can
really sharpen carbide bits with these. Has anybody tried? If so,
how'd you do?

I get my better (+$50) bits professionally sharpened for ~ $10. My
local Woodcraft can send them out, or I can get them to CT Saw or
If the cost of sending them out and getting them back is less than a new
bit, do that. Otherwise, just buy a new bit. I've never had any luck
(patience?) to succeed to any measurable degree with diamond paddles.
