Today, I fixed an old Rockwell tool grinder, looking extremely similar
It had some cast iron pieces broken off, it was not a big deal to fix.
Anyway, now that I have it working -- I will put it on a VFD -- I
wonder what can I do with it.
I am aware that use #1 is to sharpen carbide and HSS lathe
cutters. That's quite obvious and seems easy.
What I wonder about is how to sharpen drills with it, if it is at all
possible. I have two bad carbide drills, for instance, and two
identical but unworn ones. They look easy to regrind, as the grinds
are completely flat. If I just do it by hand and the result "looks"
centered, will that be good enough?
For more regular drills with curvy shape of cutters, are there any
attachments or things that I can use to grind them on this grinder?
