Tip & How-To about Air Tools & Compressors
I don't know about you but I am sick and tired of paying for drill bits that wear out afetr they are used a few times and then have to be re bought.
I refuse, and here is what i decided to do to keep the money in my pocket and not their's.
First I bought myself a nice little electric Sears bench grinder. then I read about sharpening the drill bits on the grinder, after quite a few experimental tries I now have the angle of gring down to a science and my drill bits are sharp and ready to go everyday all day.
Also I fond my chisels need sharpening and my straight blade screw drivers as well so I do them all, of course wearing protective clothing and safety eye googles.
How about preserving those expensive pneumatic hand tools you have, they get abused also, much more then you think.
even after you bleed out the water and moisture from you air compressor and air lines using a water seperator the air tools still need this very important item to keep it working right and ready everyday....it is called putting just a few drops of air tool iol into the air inlet side of the tools and running them with a rag placed over the exhaust ports catching the dirty spent oil coming out the end. Keeps them clean and well oiled for long life and durability.
