Probably because they seem like all the other crap you see on late night infomercials.

Does the Drill Doctor really work? I never saw anything about it except on "Paid Programming".

Wouldn't the drill bit have to be heat treated again after it was resharpened?

We have one of these, and it works alright, not the greatest but will work in a pinch.

Ours works just fine. Keeps the bits re-usable and sharp.

If you want one, you dont have to stay up all night watching TV, waiting for the commercial to come on. You can buy them off of the shelf @ HD.

i tried one of the dewalt sets and i thought they were junk. they were made out of soft metal, i had a couple bend over on me.

ive got a set of skill bits that are decent, although i dont think theyve been out of the tool box for at least 6 months.
i normally just get them from fastenal a few at a time as i need them.

I've had luck with milwaukee's drill index kid picked it up at HD. comes in a nice red case that opens nicely. Bits seem to last a while.
