Hey HM Folks!
I would like to set myself up to lightly reshape carbide tools, to the proper tip geometry, and hone them to a fine edge. I do believe that carbide serves some purposes and certain situations in the home shop.
Between a grinder wheel or a honing station of some kind, I would like to be able to make use of all this Carbide I have. (If this has already been covered here, please point me toward the thread
I have a 6 inch Baldor 500 Tool Grinder, and I thought I would set up one wheel to cut Carbide tools, and keep the other wheel for HSS.
Does anyone out there have experience sharpening carbide?
What do you guys do with your carbide? Diamond wheel? Hone?
If you use diamond, what grit you use?
Any wheels that have served you well?
Do you have any suggestions for vendors? I like McMaster, but $$$!!
McMaster has them for $160 to $200 D8 !!
After seeing Nelson's old post sharing Conrad Hoffman's page, I thought that a Diamond wheel (with ??? Grit?) would allow me to lightly reshape, and then I should hone the edge with a fixture like Conrad Hoffman (web page below)?
Is a Diamond wheel my best choice?
Questions questions questions!!!!
Thanks for your help guys!
