Resurfacing diamond resin wheels.
« on: May 29, 2019, 07:16:18 PM »
Hi guys, does anyone resurface their diamond resin wheels and if so, is it difficult? Seems that soft wheels just dont last as long these days.

I have a thread on it somewhere, maybe search soft wheel refurbishment, I've been using it as repository of info for when I do mine again. I'll find it later if you don't.CheersMB

That's the clue they used and they had a way to slowly turn the belt until it's dry so it won't sag. Last night I was told the there's a web sight to figure how much diamond to use per belt size. It is Village Smithy, but couldn't find it. This is what I found that might help.
