Once you figure out how to use this, it does a fairly good job of sharpening bits. I don't think it splits the bit very effectively, but I'm sure that the more I sharpen, the better I will get. The directions are a bit confusing in the book, and the DVD helps explain a little better.

Very compact with tool self storage. Good directions and easy to use. Good instructional videos. One of my better selections.

Simple to use, read/follow the instructions and you will never have to suffer dull drill bits again. I really like this tool.

A little time consuming, but absolutely well worth the investment. I paid for my drill sharpener with my first use after sharpening all my dull drill bits. I would recommend the 500X any any novice or professional tradesman.

This Drill Doctor does the job it is intend to do, the process is not as user friendly as I would have hope for. Having to rotate the drill to be sharpened, as many as 20 times is not very convenient and too time consuming. I would have preferred a sharpener where as the user would insert the drill and the sharpener would completely sharpen the drill without any further involvement by the user. However, I still would recommend this model since no other is available.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JohnD Drill Doctor, Tax Calculation Lacking
The Drill Doctor is a good solid product that I use often. I ordered it through Home Depot and paid through my credit card. When I got the CC statement I noticed there was a difference of $2.31 between the invoice and CC bill and the difference was the tax I paid. I notified HD and asked why they "estimate" taxes on the invoice. They responded with how glad they are that I'm a customer and how customer service is a priority and so on. I'm curious since everyone else I order through seems to have the software to calculate actual tax for my location (Phoenix).

The Drill Doctor 500 was as I expected. It sharpened my bits to where I can make good use of them again. The instructions booklet was pretty good however there are reviews on YouTube that explained how to use and setup the Drill Doctor very well. As far as sharpening bits, the Drill Doctor gets you "90% there" but then I found that if I used a hand sharpener, such as one from DMT, that really got me the edge I needed. Overall I'm quite happy with the Drill Doctor.
