For years, professional craftspeople have asked “how can I sharpen my own drill bits?” Tormek, a leader in tool sharpening for more than 40 years, has responded with this exceptional DBS-22 Drill Bit Sharpening jig. For use with all Tormek sharpening systems (T-7, T-4, T-3, and Supergrind 2000), it allows you to keep your drill bits sharp and ready to work. The four-facet grind this jig produces is worth discussing, as we feel it’s infinitely superior to the common split-point grind other systems produce. The symmetrical four-facet grinding increases bit life, and allows the freshly sharpened bits to be self-centering, making your work a lot easier. Think about it – no pilot holes or punches needed for precision. Plus, a four-facet grind produces a bit that utilizes less torque and generates less heat (70% less heat) than a conventional bit. Another important aspect is this jig is part of a complete water-cooled sharpening system that will make your entire shop’s worth of tools finely honed, while taking less metal off the tools and bits, increasing longevity. You can buy a stand-alone “drill bit only” machine (like Drill Doctor) that produces the inferior split-point grind, or you can have a professional-grade Tormek system with interchangeable jigs like the DBS-22. For people who love good tools and the exceptional work they produce, the choice is clear.
Keep your drill bits sharp with the help of the DBS-22 drill bit sharpening attachment from Tormek. This attachment is designed to be used with either of Tormek's signature tool-sharpening systems, the T-7 or the T-3. Sharpen any bit between 1/8 inch and 7/8 inch in diameter, and create a four-facet point for exceptional drilling performance and longer bit life. The DBS-22 can be adjusted to a variety of angles depending on the style of your bit.
Highly Adjustable and Compatible with Different Bits The DBS-22 attachment can hold drill bits that measure anywhere from 1/8 inch to 7/8 inch in diameter. It can be set at any angle between 90 degrees and 150 degrees, and the optimal clearance angle can be set to 7 degrees, 9 degrees, 11 degrees, or 14 degrees, depending on the bit size and material.
