A prototype drill grinder was designed and built based on a computer aided drill point geometry analysis. The new grinder controls all essential drill point grinding parameters. The new grinder was evaluated by grinding drills, measuring their point geometry parameters, and comparing these measurements with their expected values. The effects of five parameters, consisting of three grinding and two cutting condition parameters, on the drill thrust and torque are determined by an experiment using a two-level factorial design.
