Norton Grinding Wheel Dressing Stick
The Norton Grinding Wheel Dressing Stick
measures 1" x 1" x 6".
Silicon Carbide, Medium abrasive.
Dressing sticks are used for truing and dressing bench and pedestal
Holding the abrasive stick on the grinding wheel face while the wheel
turns will "true" the wheel back into round, producing a flat grinding
face. To clean or sharpen the wheel, move the dressing stick back and
forth across the grinding wheel face. Moving the stick quickly causes the
grinding wheel face to be rougher, which results in faster metal removal,
and rougher finishes on the workpiece. Moving the stick slowly causes the
grinding wheel face to be smoother, which results in less metal removed,
and finer surface finishes on the workpiece (primarily for dimensioning or
polishing of tools).
