Stay Sharp

Drill Doctor!

Uncle Jeff sent the Witchger boys a little present. After a short time a pile of old dull bits were ready to be used again. It even put a nice new tip on a broken bit! Thanks Jeff!

Time: 1 hour

Witch-gear: Drill Doctor!

Level of Difficulty: (What's with the saws?)

What We Learned: Sharping drill bits is easy. 118 degrees bits are the default on this machine. Be careful when trying to split the bits points.

S-10/Hyundai Door Handles

S-10/Hyundai Door Handles

The past weekend, Kevin replaced the broken driver’s-side door latch on his truck and we took apart the left rear doordoor on Steph and I’s Hyundai to replace the broken outside handle.

Time: 1 hour/each

Cost: $25/each

Witch-gear: Craftsman socket set, screwdrivers

Level of Difficulty: (What's with the saws?)

What I Learned: Buy your replacement door handles on eBay. I’ve replaced an outside door handle on the Hyundai before, and paid $70 for it at the dealer. I got the same part on eBay for $25.
