Sure do: a bench grinder and sharpening attchment. I have a Drill Doctor (forgot the model), but it's a POS. Paid about $160 for it too. I have put on a better point on a drill by hand with 4" angle grinder. Really.

Thanks for the headsup. In my "should toss but you never know" drawer I have at least five sharpeners, and was looking for the DrillDoctor model that does bits bigger than half-inch, but now I won't.

I don't have the patience any more. For small ones I have a low-cost case of replacement bits, ten each of most sizes. My big ones I bring to a pro as needed.

I don't know if they are still made or not, but my Father gave me a Black and Decker sharpener probably twenty years ago. They have did the world a favor if they stopped making them, it barley had enough power to spin the stone let alone sharpen anything, even less than a total POS. I just eyeball them on a fine stone on the bench grinder and get along fine.

I got a Drill Doctor maybe six or more years ago. It works fine for bits above 1/8 inch. For that size and smaller, I just buy the cheap bits in bulk - from Harbor Freight. When they get dull, I just toss'em

That said, I've noticed a change in Drill Doctor appearance - and presumably design. Perhaps this later version is what disappointed EarthWorks.

My wife gave me a Drill Doctor about 5 years ago that was just over $100. Think at that time was the only model Lowes sold. For over 1/8" is does fine IF you follow each step. Bought larger chuck for it to do 3/4". Have used it very little. I did have a simple attachement for bench grinder that I really liked. In moving lost part of it. Wheel on the grinder was the issue, needed a top quality one.

Greg, you are 100% correct. I bought mine I believe in 2001. Mine had thin, spring-metal jaws inside the collar that just couldn't get and keep the bit in the position it needed. It's a bluish-grey model with orange printing.

Now I'm looking for an attachment to sharpen bits on my bench grinder but so far I had no luck finding one. I've tried harbor freight, sears hardware, ace, rural king and northern tool. The only one I've found is at Grainger and I'm not sure it's what I think it is cause I can't see how it would attach to my grinder

Country; I've never owned one of that style myself, but my Father had one that was bolted to the bench next to the grinder that was also bolted down. Frank.
