  • Step Drills

    I'm a big fan of step-drills. I've never been able to sharpen them properly. Does anyone know?

    I FOUND THAT A DREMEL TOOL WITH A GREEN WHEEL, SILICON CARBIDE WHEEL WORKS GREAT. JUST USE THE FRONT OF THE WHEEL. OPPOSITE THE MANDREL. RUN IT FLAT AGAINST THE INSIDE LIP. YOU'LL NOTICE THAT THIS IS THE FLAT SURFACE. DON'T TOUCH THE OUTSIDE STEPS. ALSO A GRINDING WHEEL TO SHARPEN A CHAINSAW WORKS GREAT ON REAMER BLADES. ONLY TAKES A SECOND TO TOUCH UP THE REAMER.

      I have a 1200X diamond hone that I use for router bits and it does a great job on steps as well. I use the method plumber rick describes - hone flat surface only

        Plumber Rick,

        Thanks for the reply. Certainly makes sense, I'll try it.

          I am not sure about sharpening them DOG,as I can ream 1000's of 1/2-3/4-1 cuts before they show signs of wear,it has made it's money saved in time spent reaming back 100 fold,I just buy a new one

                    Hi Joey,

                    Thank you for the invitation to join. Maybe one day? I just may get bored enough in this relationship because all Adam's spare time is spent on the Forum...Can any of you women out there relate?

                      Mellie is it really you? Or are you messing with me Adam?

                      We can relate that's why we joined the forum!

                        Re: Step Drills

                        Exactly...

                        I don't mind if rob is on the forum..cause i'am too..i don't reply on the plumbing issues but on the non tool things...and only cause i'm not working but suppose to be studying..kidding..i'm really studying..

                        If i was working i might mind if rob is ALL THE TIME on the forum instead of spending time with me..I dont see adam on the forum regulary at all..except today

                            So the last two subjects, step drills and drain cleaning machines went female all of a sudden

                            Josh, we need a womens section, so they can post there

                              Yes Joey It's really me. I want to take Adam out to dinner for his Birthday but he doesn't want to do anything because he say's it's too hot. Personally I think he's perfectly happy just to sit at home and play on the Forum. For me I get bored seeing him sit in front of his computer all nite!

                              When do I get any attention?
