Basic Machine Technology: Sharpening Drill Bits By Hand Or The Drill Press

Basic Machine Technology: Sharpening Drill Bits by Hand or the Drill Press is part seven of the Basic Machine Technology 10-part training series.

The course teaches students two methods of grinding twist drills. The first method, hand grinding, is performed on a pedestal grinder with the machinist doing all the manipulations by hand. The second method, drill point grinding, is performed the same way but with a drill grinder. Since every machine shop does not have a precision drill point grinder, students need to know how to perform drilling techniques using both methods.

The course covers:

  • Safety
  • Drill bit descriptions and sizes
  • Tip angles
  • Hand grinding
  • Drill point grinding machines
  • Checking accuracy.
