This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the wood badge in tool care.

For this BB, you will sharpen six spade drill bits.

How To Sharpen A Spade Drill Bit - by Old Sneelock's Workshop

Video description:
"Inexpensive and easy to find, Spade Bits are easy to sharpen also. Next time rather than tossing out the bit when it starts to cut slower, take a few minutes with a file and you’ll be back drilling in no time. "

To get certified for this BB, post photos or a two minute video of:

 - close up of the six dull forestner drill bits
 - mid-process with all sharpening equipment used for the forestner drill bits
 - close up of each of the edge of the six sharpened forestner drill bits
My previous laptop never exploded like that. Read this tiny ad while I sweep up the shards.
