Sticks & Stones
Help keep your diamond tools sharp and efficient with a diamond dressing stick and stones from HIS. If not frequently dressed, a diamond tool can glaze over and begin tearing instead of grinding, creating friction and possibly damaging the tool as well as the project you're working on. Help reduce these risks by keeping diamond tools properly dressed. Use a silicon carbide dressing stick in a coarse grit to help dress conventional vitrified wheels. Use silicon carbide dressing sticks in softer grades and fine grit sizes for helping to dress diamond wheels. An aluminum oxide dressing stick in any grit size can work well on diamond profile wheels. HIS stocks diamond dressing sticks in a broad scope of grits ranging from super fine to extra coarse. Abrasive sharpening stones are used to sharpen the edges of metal cutting tools and debur, clean, and smooth work-pieces or surfaces. Also known as a whetstone or water stone, a sharpening stone's shape determines its use, and its surface material and grit size determine the finish it provides. Slim sharpening files debur and chamfer hard-to-reach areas of machine parts and tools. Flat, rectangular sharpening stones hone sharp edges on chisels, knives, and razors.
