Welp!! After being told it would be delivered between 11/17 - 11/24, the smaller MR-13B arrived by DHL currier at 1:30 pm, today. Iā€™m in the process of getting ready for the trip to Kansas in the morning, but I had to try it out before I left. It work jut like the bigger MR-26A unit, the results were spectacular. The unit is about 1/3 the size and weight of the bigger unit. So dull drill bits in the 5/64ā€ to 1-1/16ā€ (2 mm - 26 mm) range, should no longer be an issue.

Got the larger one last night.....damn it is heavy.

Pried off the entrails of a wood box, and it looks like it's all there, and the motor
sounds quiet.

will try it later on.

Thank you again for the heads up, I have looked at them for years, but they were always much more expensive.

I got one of the drill doctors. It's mostly plastic, and works better than I can do it freehand. Of course, I cannot sharpen drills freehand at all. Once I've sharpened a dull drill, it definitely cuts better, and I really can't tell that the two edges are different lengths and it's wobbling and cutting oversize. I'm not doing precision work, so it doesn't matter if it's a bit off.
