    Drill & Lathe bit sharpener.

    This combination drill and bit sharpener, happened back in the 80's when I acquired a green wheel [5 bucks], had this motor from a commercial sewing machine and a drill sharpener from Sears [8 bucks].The bit sharpener was an after thought. Does a great job sharpening carbide bits, the drill sharpener does a decent job.

    The drill grinder is a "General 826" a similar model is sold by Amazon & Harbor Freight ,there is a very
    good demonstration by bretthl1 on youtube,"Review of the General 825 Drill Grinding Attachment".
    I have a"Darex" sharpener and the "General"is on par,the only thing it doesn't do is to relieve the web.

    The bit holder I have is a General (brand) drill grinding attachment sharpener number 825.It will sharpen bits 1/8" to 3/4" diameter. Lots of them on ebay.
