There is a big difference between and blunt and a sharp drill bit. It also turns out that using a drill bit sharpener, rather than an angle grinder, to sharpen a blunt bit is quite a different experience. So, after much research, I’ve bought a Sealey drill bit sharpener SMS2008. I’ve no prior experience, but after some use, I think it’s good enough to share what I found.
I actually really like this tool. There is something strangely satisfying about sharpening a good handful of bits in one sitting. It won’t save me any money versus the cost of buying new bits, but it will mean I’m not trying to use blunt bits when I shouldn’t. The drill bit sharpener will also save me from running out of drill bits at critical times.
After about a month of using the Sealey SMS2008 drill bit sharpener, I’m very glad I bought it. It’s fairly easy to use and compact enough that I can throw it in a cupboard and drag it out quickly enough. Sharpening the bits does become a bit addictive after a while.
I’m a little embarrassed to post this Sealey SMS2008 drill bit sharpener review. The voice-over audio quality is not the greatest. I’ve tried a few different methods to correct it with only a little improvement. Some new tricks have been learned that I can apply to the next video.
