Why DBS-22 Drill Bit Sharpening Attachment?
- Sharpens a four-facet point that drills more efficiently and lasts longer.
- Sharpens drill bits with outstanding precision.
- Extends drill bit service life more than four times over compared to traditional S-tip drill bits.
- Works best with Tormek T-8, as well as older models.
Four-facet point that lasts longer
The patented DBS-22 Drill Bit Sharpening Attachment is used to create a four-facet point that provides great cutting characteristics as the cross-cut of the drill bit is pointed instead of being almost flat, as on many other drill bits. A four-facet point won’t wander and requires significantly less drilling pressure compared to a conventional cone point drill.
A precision-sharpened four-facet point also reduces heat build-up, giving a very long service life for the drill bit. Independent tests show that drill bits sharpened using Tormek equipment last more than four times longer than new conventional drill bits¹.
¹ Uddeholm Tooling AB, 2010. In the test, 15 mm (0.59″) deep holes were drilled in a hardened steel using a 6 mm (0.24″) drill bit. At a speed of 1326 rpm and 0.15 mm (0.006″) feed per revolution, the drill bits sharpened using the Tormek equipment lasted for 327 holes on average, while the new S-tip drill bits lasted for 72 holes.
