Step 3  //  Drill Test and the Effects of incorrect grinding of the Drill Point
 

To test whether a drill has been properly sharpened,


drill a hole in soft material and observe the chip formation.
When properly sharpened, the chips will come out of the
flutes in curled spirals of equal length

Incorrect grinding causes the drill bit to run out of true, producing oversized and often, out-of-round holes.
This puts severe strain on the drill bit causing rapid wear and premature drill failure.
