Dressing:
To dress the wheel, select a dressing stick one or two grit sizes finer than the abrasive In the diamond or CBN wheel. Turn off the coolant pump.

Turn on the machine and allow the grinding wheel to reach full RPM, and then turn off the spindle motor. Apply the dressing stick to the abrasive section on the wheel with medium to light pressure until the wheel stops rotating.

Repeat the above step until the dressing stick feels like it is being pulled or drawn into the wheel. This may need to be repeated up to four or five times depending on the condition of the wheel surface.

Warning:
DO NOT USE CLUSTER OR SINGLE POINT DIAMOND DRESSING TOOLS FOR TRUING DIAMOND OR CBN WHEELS.
