Just wanted to thank you for posting that knife/scissor sharpener a couple weeks ago. NOT....
After seeing your post and researching that tool a little and being a big tool junkie I bought one. Pretty cool tool actually.

Try not to post any more tool pictures or videos for a couple months please.  ;D

Now when I hold a bobbin winding party I can also have a scissor sharpening party at the same time. Still waiting for June and Bobbin to volunteer as waitresses for us. :)

I just use a stone for my scissors.  Still learning how to hone a great edge, but I'm getting better.  My grandpa was a carpenter and boatbuilder and never owned an electric tool in his life.  In fact, he made most of his own tools.  I recall him sitting at his stone wheel, spinning it with a treadle contraption, sharpening his tools.  It looked a lot like this...

Fine edges were done by hand, of course, using a whetstone.

Send the bill to Hammer. He's the one that got everybody (including me) stirred up over at Carrs.

Sofa I got the Drill Dr.  Paid for itself in the first hour I got it home, went through all my dull and broken bits and sharpened them up good as new.  Now it's one of those tools I wonder how I ever got by without.

There were a number of people at Carr's who have bought this little gem and used them to sharpen knives, scissors and button dies.  I've probably already sharpened 30 knives and get them done in less than a minute each.  I'd consider the Drill Dr., but most of my drill bits won't work with it (forstner, brad point, bullet point, spade, etc.)

Always wanted a drill doctor but wondered if they really worked. Now I know. Now which one should I get. They have a large model selection and the prices very greatly.

The one that sharpens spade and twist looks interesting.
There cannot be a crisis next week. My schedule is already full.

Check out Northern's prices:

They're a few bucks higher, but they have free shipping.
If my drilling needs are simple, is the $60 one all I need?
I mainly just pre-drill holes before adding screws for frame repair.
Occasionally drilling out a broken rivet or bolt. Usually 7/16" and below.
I'm thinking the $60 one would suit my needs. Right?

Sofadoc,
You need to look into one of these: http://www.amazon.com/QUICK-CHANGE-COUNTERSINK-DRILL-SNAPPY/dp/B000XXZME8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1328824160&sr=8-1

I picked up one a year ago at a wood show.   Made in USA, hardened where it needs to be and oversize set screws that don't slip.   I almost always use #8 screws for my "glue and screw" repairs, but countersink and pilot hole with a #10 bit.   This allows the screw to slip and suck the attached piece down tight.

I think Woodcraft also carries them.

I have a set of those, not that brand but similar. For puting in snaps into fiberglass. The countersink reams out the gel coat and prevents it chipping. Very handy.
