Does anyone recognize this drill sharpening jig

Post by SteveM » Wed May 15, 2019 10:40 am

Found this partial drill sharpening jig.

Looks like the ones sold by Craftsman, but a nice machined part and not a cheap casting.

There's a scale on the side to adjust the radius, and the scale goes up to about 3/4".

The clamp has an insert for the smaller drill sizes, which is removed for the laregr sizes.

It's missing some parts, notably a stand.

Anyone recognize this?

I'd like to find some pictures of a complete one to see if I can make the rest of the parts. An instruction manual would be nice, too.

That definitely looks nicer than the craftsman version, and even some of the "better" ones out there. I'll be watching to see if anybody knows!

The funny thing is that the other half was probably bolted to the workbench by the grinder and was thrown out by someone cleaning up the workshop.

If it's like the craftsman version, it was just a place for what you have to pivot.

Maybe this will help figure out what parts you need to make.

OK, that gives me a good idea of where to go with this.

Slightly different mechanism, but the same principles.

A google image search appears to have found it.

It's a drill sharpening jig from either a Deckel S0 or one of the chinese made copies.

That link is James Long's adventures in buying, rebuilding, improving and using one of those imports.
