    Grinder wheel dressing tools

    Hi All

    Can anyone advise me on a decent grinding wheel dressing tool.

    I have a delta 8 inch that came with a small t piece type wheel dresser but when i use it the 80 grit wheel is left with groves. It is not exactly a quality device.

    So I am looking for others that people have used and proven worthwhile. Note I can search the web too but thats not what i am after here.

    Thanks
    cheers

    What!? You want responses from people with actual experience? Where is the fun in that?

    this is a ball bearing unit designed to flatten the face, it uses a coarse grit stone.

    this is a home made "t" stick made with a diamond segment from a core bit, i use it to rough shape wheel profiles.

    Rob, I have the 'T' shaped dresser, and I move it from side to side as I lightly apply it to the spinning wheel. That seems to handle the 'groove' problem for me.

    If you're looking for the top end of the scale, Oneway's Wolverine wheel dresser is right up there.

    Thank you all for the direction. Larry looked up Alexs thread and sure enough he has the same T type Vaughn mentions and the same one that i have. I think I will give mine a little hammer treatment in the high spot area. Its one that seems to have been made on the cheap and the "diamond" (if I believe that) chips are all sorts of sizes and there are a few that stick right out.

    Thanks for the oneway pointer Vaughn, just not in my budget right now. Thanks Todd as usual you have all the down to earth tips.
    cheers
