Diamond Dresser Wheel The fastest, easiest way to dress a grinding wheel! Avoid all of the inaccuracies and difficulties of single point dressing tools! This nickel-plated dresser has long lasting, 46-grit diamond chips for fast resurfacing or shaping. Unlike single point dressing tools, it has a dressing surface area that is 1/2" wide and 1-3/4" long. Uniform reconditioning of your wheels is as simple as placing the dresser on your tool rest and contacting the wheel. No more frustration from futile attempts to accurately guide a single point, diamond tip across the face of your grinding wheel. Overall tool length is 4-5/8".

True the wheel by knocking abrasive particles from the wheel's surface and making the wheel concentric. This minimizes vibration and improves surface finish, eliminating the vibration of the out-of-balance wheel across the workpiece's surface.
Dislodge these abrasive particles, which also has the effect of exposing fresh abrasive from the wheel's surface. Each abrasive grain is a small cutting tool; a worn grain has its edges dulled and loses its effectiveness. Exposing the fresh grains is thus a sharpening process. Glazing of the wheel is evidence of rounded grains and is noticeable by a reflective surface on the spinning wheel.
Clean the wheel. If a workpiece is softer than the grade for which the wheel is designed, the abrasive particles will not be dislodged in time to present fresh, sharp grains. The wheel therefore appears to lose its edge especially as the pores between grains fill with fragments of the workpiece. The wheel is then said to be loaded and is one reason why the selection of wheel is extremely important.
