A few weeks ago I found some Lapidary tools at a tag sale, the price was right so I bought all 3 tools. One of the machines uses 6 wheels that are diamond faced.link above shows the newer version of what I have. Anyhow I decided to see how it would work on HSS and Carbide bits. Just a small test and it cut the tools very nice. I am not sure how well the wheels would hold up to the tool bits verses rock. It is nice having the water cooling the bit as you shape it and touching the wheel as you work is no big deal.
