Im still building my tool grinder, but I have enough bits to do a few trial grinds to make sure that all the various angles and such work ok.
I have an alloy bodied resin diamond wheel that I am using - you can see it in this photo:
I have had it for a while, and it’s been used on the previous iterations of this grinder.

I have never properly dressed the face of a cup wheel like that due to lack of the correct kit. What I do with mine is "Lap" the face on a criss/crossed cast iron lapping plate with a drop of paraffin. Worn faces can be restored quickly if not allowed to get to bad. No doubt people who used the correct method will be horrified.

Hi Dave there is an attachment to true diamond wheels. It is a small spindle with a soft grinding wheel which when brought in to contact with the wheel has an inbuilt brake to slow it and it trues the wheel.
