Tradesman Resin Bond Wheels for Bladesmiths , it pays to do your homework
We’ve learned a lot in the last three months
And this is what we know now
Resin bond wheels are sharp, Plated bond wheels are dull
Resin bond wheels never wear out , Plated bond wheels are fragile and wear out
This is a no brainer:
The abrasive particles in resin bond wheels are sharp and cut the steel instead of “plowing”
this results in a thinner which is easily removed.
In this test we used a :
100 grit diamond resin bond wheel for apex fabrication
2000 Grit Diamond wheel fore Edge prep (Finish grinding)
Composite wheel (40 durometer neoprene) Tormek Paste
Look at the second picture totally manageable burr can be taken off with a few strokes on a paddle strop
Third picture one light pass low rpm wheel to a micro burr.
Fourth Picture 3 super light passes each side burr is totally gone.
Best part: Resin bond wheels almost never wear out, 🙂
