diamond wheel

I just looked at my Enco flier and it has 6"diamond plated grinding wheels
that fit my Horrible Fright carbide bench grinder. They are on sale for
83.99. My question is which one to get? They have 100 coarse, 150 med. and
220 fine. I use the carbide cutters on wood and phenolics so I have to make
a large change in the profile of the tool. It needs much greater angles. I
could do most of the grinding with a standard wheel and am going to use the
diamond for the sharpening. I can't afford all three so which one would be
the most useful?
As usual, thanks in advance,
Dick

The 220, if you can do most of the grinding on another wheel.
That is where I would go.

Ugh. Where is our grinder guru? I believe he told me that electro plated sucked. Better a resinous bond.

Thanks all. Harold e-mailed me and that's exactly what he told me - get the resinous. I need to find one of those on sale now.

Someone on the uk model engineering group was speaking of some asian import diamond wheels, suitable for carbide grinding, priced very low, $25 equivalent price range.
Ahhh!

More of the toll and cutter grinding sort of wheel, but the flat ones would work fairly well, and the price is better than the large plated wheel!
Dunno if anyone on this side of the pond has a stock of these or not.
The 6 inch diameter (150 mm, more or less) diameter ones that I have seen, had a layer of diamond that would have been maybe 1/16 or a bit less thick, on a deeper substrate. I don't suppose it would take a lot of abuse, to get through teh diamond layer, but with a light touch, they should last a long time.

I understand that his ISP dropped offering usenet news, and he is stuck *reading* (but not posting) through Google -- and he replies only via e-mail now.
Enjoy, DoN.

for those whose ISP no longer carries usenet news, there are inexpensive services - I use teranet, there are others - teranet has a one time $3 fee for setup for their "free" service, and they have a "premium" service you pay monthly for - but if you only read text news and eschew binaries, there is no reason for the more expensive service.
pretty much any service is better than google's because google requires a real email to post
