...new from Multi-Sharp
This clever device from Multi-Sharp allows you to accurately grind correct tip angles and restore sharp-as-new cutting edges on HSS, centre-point wood, flat wood and masonry, including SDS-Plus on 3-13mm diameter drill bits.
The grinding jig has all the angles for correct tip geometry built in. It positions each type of bit over the wheels to give the correct tip and relief angles, and a unique cam action ensures correct tip rake and chisel edge.
The Drill Bit Sharpener extends drill bit life for years, and saves money as a result. The high quality aluminium oxide and silicon carbide wheels sharpen at least 150 HSS/wood bits and 75 masonry/SDS-Plus bits based on a 6.5mm diameter size – replacement wheels are available.
In terms of sharpening capability the jig re-edges and re-points a whole range of small tools, including carbide-tipped ones, making them easier to use while extending tool life. It is also useful as a mini bench grinder.
The tool fits any domestic power drill including cordless versions and is also supplied with full step-by-step instructions. Please note that this product is sent out in a strong plain box, which doubles up as useful storage for the product parts. Priced at £16.95 (plus £4 P&P)
