Tormek DBS-22 Drill Bit Sharpener
The complex geometry of a drill bit point makes it very hard to free hand sharpen it correctly. The Drill Bit Sharpening Attachment DBS-22 makes it possible to sharpen drill bits on your Tormek Water Cooled Sharpening System with the highest precision. You create a 4-facet point which gives the ideal cutting performance. The optimal point and clearance angle can be set according to each drilling requirement in regards to drill size and material. You can restore completely worn drills as well as broken drills to a perfect shape.Unlike conventional drill bit sharpeners, Tormek sharpens with water cooling which is gentle on the steel. Overheating of the steel is usually not noticeable, but the consequences are that the drill will dull rapidly and may even break. By working with the laws of physics and cooling the edge continuously, the risk that the steel becomes overheated and loses its hardness or gets micro cracks is eliminated.With a 4-facet sharpening the chisel edge gets a point instead of being almost flat as on many drills.
