Drill Doctor 750X Review
1. Type of Materials DD750X can sharpen
While purchasing drill bits the first question comes into our mind that is the drill bit sharpener able to sharpen the material of my drill bit? Obviously, it is a major question to be learned before purchasing a drill bit sharpener. And, here is the answer.
The DD750X is an industrial grade sharpening tool that can sharpen the majority of your drill bits. So, you do not have to be worried about the metal of your drill bits, even if it is higher-end metal the DD750X can sharpen it.
Generally, drill bits are made of HSS (high-speed steel), masonry bits, carbide, and Titanium Nitride-Coated steel and DD750X is able to cover all of these types of materials without any problem.
2. The range of Drill Size DD750X can Cover
Then the most important parameter that comes after the material type is the size range covered by the sharpener.
You can sharpen bits range from 3/32 inches and 3/4 inches using DD750X and I would like to inform you that almost all bits that are commonly found in the market or used by professionals or personal purpose fall in this range.
Moreover, DD750X is designed with an adjustable setting system that allows you to make back-cut slices to sharpen the tips of your drill more effectively.
3. Customized Point Angle
DD750X covers a large range of angle. During sharpening your drill bit you can set DD750X at any angle ranging from 115° to 140°. For ensuring added durability cast aluminum point angle shuttle has been included in this drill bit sharpener.
4. Voltage Motor
DD750X uses a motor of 115 voltages. So, it is also important to check whether the power system used in your shop matches with this range or not.
In Australia, the voltage requirement is 230V. So, if you are living in Australia you have to use a step-down transformer to use DD750X drill bit sharpener.
5. Diamond Wheel
A diamond-studded wheel is included in DD750X. You can sharpen and shape any tip smoothly like butter using this. The initial wheel generally lasts at least 200 sharpening or more than this.
After crossing this large range you need to replace the initial wheel with the diamond-studded wheel that can sharpen 118 through 140-degree point angle.
Since DD750X is a compact and lightweight product you can carry it wherever you want without any hassle.
DD750X is a high-quality product that lasts for a long time. So, once you purchase it you just need to change the wheel after crossing the sharpening limit. But, the machine provides good service for a long time if you maintain it properly on a regular basis.
