Rick; get yourself a small 3-corner metal file and simply touch up before a rough out. during my slow times, i'll take a 1/2 dz bits to a sharpening shop, there's an old swedish buck that has saved me $$$$... (I just can't understand the dude....)

I have a sheet we give out at our apprenticeship school that shows how to do it. It's a copy of a copy of a copy so it's not crystal clear but I'd be glad to scan it and email you a .jpg of it. (sorry I have no access to a fax). Just give me an email address

Lately I've found sharpening the screw at the end of the auger with a Dremel works better than actually sharpening the blade. I use a very thin disc and sharpen the threads of the screw, for 5 minutes work it saves me $40.
