Definetly the Drill Doc 750 would be the way to go....I got my drill press straigtened out, thanks to the advice of the forum :{_}: ....I reset the belts to 340 rpm and noticed that chuck was slipping but the belts were not...The reverse threaded nut that drives the pulley that drives the chuck, had loosened up and so after tightening I used the step drill bit and punched a couple 5/8 holes into 3/8 steel...( Had to flip the steel over, but it worked out)...Thanks...Back to the Drill Doc, it's on Amazon for 134 with free shipping...I went to TSC and bought a 5/8 drill bit ( cause all my others were dull :lol: and that alone is 15.00...I'll be ordering it ...Now if they could just make one that stops me from breaking the little fellows... :lol: PS The hardest steel I've encountered, and I used bed frames to reenforce my Danco C3, is the 12 ga framing for the metal building I erected....Holy smoke...I had to pre drill the holes for the self taping screws to put the siding on...Should handle a good snow load.... :lol:Thanks all... :thanx:( One more thing I diidn't use the self tapping after trying a few :lol: )

Dave:

On the storage trailer project Leo wanted self tapping. I ended up visiting my favourite fastener supply house and Dana set me up with self drilling 2-1/2" hex heads. Boy do I ever like them self drilling screws. Saves on drill bits :big smile:

Like my drill dr really well. If ya got at well dressed grinding wheel and a 59 degree drill gauge, I'm sure there are you tube vids or some good articles on sharpening it your self.

I'd like to say Thank You to the owners, moderators, and sponsors of this forum. :thanx: :||):
For not only putting time and money into a tractor forum, but also having it open enough to also encompass topics like this one.

I now know why my drill press has pulleys and belts on the top and how to avoid using my drill doctor so often. :oops:

Thanks Again for supporting such an educational venture.

Dave, My Drill Doctor has gauges on the side to determine the different angles (115 and 135* or whatever they are). I would bet yours does too.

The more blunt the point, the sooner the lips are involved in full cutting action. I sharpen all of mine to115 degrees. The average person will not notice any difference between 115 and 135. IMHO. Grump

Hmmmmmm, I called my machinist BIL and he told me most all drill bits are 135 at least at Ball where he works. and drawing on his experience.....So this morning I used the 135 and the ones I sharpened cut great...Now either I'm getting the hang of it or 135 is the key for metal...I'll be researching, till I get it... :lol:(cobalt seems to be a key word in 135 bits) ....Hey at least he's sending me a drill bit gauge... :lol:

Dime store protractor, make your own drill bit angle gauges. Sheet metal cut out or simply trace the desired angles on a file folder type paper.
I have an excuse. CRS.
