USING A DRILL POINT GAGE
The method for sharpening in the cutting edges of a drill
is to do one lip at a time. Each lip must have the same
length and have the same angle in relation to the axis of
the drill. Set the sliding head securely on the rule at the

vertically against the rule so that the drill lip contacts the
59 degree angle of the sliding head. Hold up to light;
correct angle is obtained when no light is seen between
