  • Home made DAREX DRILL SHARPENER

    One of my machining buddies scored a used Darex drill sharpener on E Bay a few weeks ago with some extra parts. So I bought them from him. The Drill setter 0- 1/2 inch collet and the sharpening attachment.
    I borrowed the point splitter of the one at work 2 week ends ago . Brought it home measured and drew up a set of plans and set in to make all the parts for the point splitter attachment.
    In the mean time my other Buddie Bill Pace got some Darex parts of E-Bay and some extra attachments for one two. So I set in to find some nice little grinders to use . Found some Ryobi at Home Depot for$ 39.00 et in to design a plate to mount all this on and make it look some what factory built. Got mine finished to day Bill should have his finished next week. It works great and looks good . Hope Yall like it I do and the Darex is hard to beat for keeping your drill sharp. I alsi have a Lisle and a home SDR sharpener. and have used all kinds over the years ,but the Darex isthe fasted to use and does a great job when set up right.

    I can't quite see the details.
    Would you please post a full set of measured drawings for the parts you made so I can see what you did there on the point splitter?

            Will try to get by Lanes in next day or so and maybe the 2 of us can get those plans up...I know I can do it from my puter, so hopefully I can get them in Lanes. He DOES have some quite nice drawings made up, --- I question how they will transfer to the site here and then out to a printer, the print is quite small, --- sure worth a try.

            And, yes, that splitter is worthy of a larger pix of it...its..its.. well, its a thing of beauty, ---I'm surprised he didnt include the "DAREX" that is cast in the side of the original!!

            I made some progress on mine today ... will be identical to Lanes. Spent a pleasurable afternoon yesterday looking over his shoulder assembling that thing, ----with it pouring down rain and cold outside, and us in a warm, well equipped shop, makin chips and shootin the breeze, couldnt get much better.....

              Yippur.... I've been contemplating that type project to replace my abysmal Drill Quack.

              Plans, or even a good set of hints on the relief cam action would be very much appreciated.

                Lane, just scan it and it comes out as a jpg. This is just something that was handy, this covered my whole scanner and I reduced it to 35%x35%

                  This is the drawings of the point splitter - some of the screw holes. The clamp band was purchased from Darex.

                      Spent some time with Lane again this afternoon, -- he was doing some fine tuning on the Darex and when got through, he popped a couple 3/8" drill bits in to check it out and WHOA! -- will that thing do a job on a drill bit!....and the splitter.........!!

                      While the splitter was off I grabbed a couple shots so you can get a better appreciation of this thing, --- he gets stuff out of the scrap box and makes things like this!! Note the little white dot on the knob....yep, he made that too!

                      Thankfully between the 2 of us we got the print figured out....

                          Wow. I was just kiddin' and they go & upload drawings & pics.
                          I'm in the same boat and have a Darex rig minus the point splitter, so although I was kidding I really will use it.

                          Thanks.
