A flexible drill bit, also known as a bellhanger bit, will cut easily, provided it's kept sharp. In fact, a properly sharpened bit will practically pull itself through the wood. A sharp drill bit cuts the wood fibers, while a dull one tears them. Before using any drill bit, please read this Disclaimer! Using a dull bit means using extra pressure to get it to cut.
This causes friction, heating the bit up. Metal wears faster when it is heated, which will make an already-dull bit even duller. Pushing harder on the drill will also cause a long drill bit to bend, causing it to drill the hole off course. It should actually remain almost perfectly straight throughout any drilling operation. The shaft is thin and flexible because:. Drill using light pressure, and with the drill motor set to a higher speed.
There are several ways to sharpen drill bits, but the two most common are a drill bit sharpenerand a bench grinder. Be careful! Drill bits have sharp edges, and sharpening them will create sparks and cause them to become very hot. Always wear eye protection and gloves while sharpening or drilling. Drill bit sharpening tools come in lots of styles, but they all have some way to guide the bit into a sharpening stone at the correct angle.
This regrinds the cutting edge as closely as possible to its original bevel, and will give the longest useful life for the bit. This is great, but sometimes not practical. The ready-made drill bit sharpeners are accurate, but they can be slow. It can take quite a while to grind off enough steel to create a fresh cutting edge. A regular 6- or 8-inch bench grinder is a quick method to sharpen drill bits. First, we need to grind a new, sharp cutting edge. This will allow the bit to cut efficiently, with less effort and less heat generated.
