    Same as what everyone else is saying, its one of those things youd want to learn if you have half an interest in what youre doing.

    When I started my apprenticeship, our tafe teacher made us make a quick angle template which we used for drill bits, welding prep and a whole range of stuff, maybe make one and go crazy.

    There are all kinds of complicated jigs and gadgets out there for sharpening drill bits. But the fact is, twist drill bits are actually quite easy to sharpen by hand. And if you mess up, the worst that can happen is that you grind away a few millimeter of drill until you get it right.
