Don't Forget to Dress
3M offers a versatile line of dressing tools, each uniquely equipped to sharpen specific wheels. Ultimately, the dressing tool you select will be based on a variety of factors, including wheel size, mineral type and just how much buildup needs to be cleared from the wheel. 3M™ Diamond Non-Resettable Single Point Dressing Tool is a general-purpose dressing tool designed to tackle wheels with moderate to low removal rates.
The single-point design of this dressing tool looks like a pointed tip at the end of a steel shank. We engineered this dressing tool with a single point design for precise dressing capabilities. The diamond point enables the tool to tackle wheel faces, external radii and large internal radii on ceramic grain wheels and other difficult-to-dress wheels. Diamond mineral is one of the sharpest, most durable natural minerals, which is why we chose it for this wheel. Equipped to tackle a variety of substrates and hard-to-reach areas, 3M™ Diamond Non-Resettable Single Point Dressing Tool is a great multi-purpose accessory.

Help Wheels Live Longer
While truing is synonymous with profiling and helps restore the wheel's original shape, dressing sharpens its surface. Naturally, bond material and swarf build up on the wheel over time. Moreover, when a loaded wheel heats up, it can lead to glazing or smoothing of the wheel's textured face. These issues highlight the importance of dressing; it will help your wheel run as intended. Trued and dressed wheels have fresh cutting edges that grind quickly and evenly on metal surfaces, which increases throughput and improves quality.
In summary, truing and dressing are important maintenance processes required to keep expensive abrasive wheels cutting consistently. These applications help you extend the lifespan of your wheels and should be an integral part of any workshop that uses abrasive wheels regularly.
