A Customer's Story







As most train enthusiasts have more than one interest beyond trains, so does the Motor Doctor.  If you are a woodworker or have a small model/machine shop, you know that an important part of having an efficient shop is sharp tools!   Specifically drills and planer/jointer knives.  If you are in need of keeping your expensive drill bits and planer/jointer  knives sharp look no further as the Doc can help.

The Doc can sharpen drill bits from 1/8 to 2-1/2 inches in diameter with a 118 degree point.  Also, the Doc can handle single edged planer/jointer knives up to 24 inches in length.  The equipment the Doc uses is commercial grinding equipment used by professionals.  So, if you need help getting sharp, drop the Doc an e-mail.

Oh...the Doc does brush/tree chipper blades up to 16" too (single edge)!
