Diamond Wheel For Sharpening Tungsten?

Postby rahtreelimbs » Sun Feb 11, 2018 12:03 pm

Can the same diamond wheel be used for sharpening tungsten used on aluminum and carbon/stainless steel?

I do it all the time. As long as you mean sharpening tungsten only and your not grinding aluminum and steel with the same diamond wheel.

Depends. Most times it’s fine. But if your doing med grade or high purity then your taking a chance. But that’s seriously high end stuff.
I have more questions than answers
