No Brad, I don't want you to do anything but be accurate. You claimed it took 10 minutes to set up a Drill Dr. and that an average hand sharpened drill bit will drill to within a half a thou to a thou (you don't even mention using a drill gauge so it must be you have a calibrated eyeball). You dismiss the idea of drill grinders all together in fact. Then you go on to tell how you can tell the size a drill bit will drill by drilling down 75 thousandths and sticking a gauge pin in the hole. I have to assume you mean a pin gauge there. Well, that gauge will tell you what size that end of the hole is as far as you drilled it and no more. BTW- did you mean a vernier caliper or a dial micrometer caliper or an inside mike or maybe a digital caliper when you said you can measure the hole with a caliper?
How about just stepping down off the high horse and realizing there are a lot of people out there that benefit from items like the Drill Dr, various sharpening jigs and other useful tools? Dissing an item based on using it a couple times is a poor practice in my experience, especially if there are other people reporting good success with that item.
