- This coarse wheel gives an efficient steel removal and rapidly repairs a dull or damaged edge.
- The grit size is 360.
- You can sharpen all types of material, incl. steel, ceramic and carbide.
- Fits Tormek models T-8, T-7 and previous models with a 250 mm wheel diameter.
- 150ml Anti-corrosion concentrate is included with every Diamond Wheel.
- Always use the concentrate in the water when sharpening with water to prevent rust on the grinding wheel. Add 10ml of concentrate to 250ml of water.
- Tormek’s Diamond Wheels are constructed with a precision machined steel frame. The frame is coated with a single layer of diamond grit that is electrolytically anchored with nickel.
- *Tormek recommend always using water when sharpening with the diamond wheel, as it prolongs the life of the wheel and provides a finer surface. It is also possible to sharpen without water.
- Grit: 360
- Stone Diameter: 250mm
- Max RPM: 150 rpm
- Weight: 4.1Kg
The Diamond Wheel’s structure
- Tormek’s Diamond Wheels are constructed with a precision machined steel frame.
- The frame is coated with a single layer of diamond grit that is electrolytically anchored with nickel.
- When the coated abrasives are touched by the filings of metal from your tool, they will reach the steel frame through the pores that occur in the nickel coating and exposing the steel core.
- Therefore, always use the ACC-150 Anti-Corrosion Concentrate in the water when sharpening with water to prevent rust on the grinding wheel.
- Add 10 ml of concentrate to 250 ml water (~4%).
- Always use water when sharpening with the Diamond Wheel, as it prolongs the life of the wheel and provides a finer surface.
- It is also possible to sharpen without water.
Important when using:
- Always apply a low pressure when sharpening. Apply a very low pressure when sharpening with a new diamond wheel. The diamond grits on a new diamond wheel are very sharp and sensitive to high pressure.
- At first usage, the diamond surface will seem aggressive, so you should expect to feel and hear that some diamond grits stand out. After a short break-in period, the diamond crystals will stabilize to a uniform level to give a finer surface. This process normally takes 2–5 sharpenings.
- Do NOT use the TT-50 Turning Tool on the Diamond Wheel. There is no need to true the wheel
