Product description

A wheel dressing stick made from carborundum (sliicon carbide). Sized 1 in. x 1 in. x 6 in. approx (150x25x25mm).

Used to dress the surface of a grinding wheel to flatten the surface, removing grooves caused by grinding repeatedly in the same spot, and exposing fresh (sharp) abrasive material of the wheel. This improves the performance of the wheel causing it to cut faster with less heat buildup. With careful use the dressing stick can be used to reduce the eccentricity which bedevils some grinders, causing vibration and tool bounce.

A popular modern equivalent is the T-Bar diamond dresser (ref: DSD), albeit at a higher price.
