    Lightbulb Plans for a diamond wheel dressing fixture?

    I'm a retired job-shop owner & tool-maker. Now I have a home shop in my garage.

    I just acquired a carbide tool grinder and I need to dress the wheels. One wheel is aluminum oxide; the other is a diamond wheel. I have a miter fence, with which I can guide a wheel dressing fixture. (I'm surprised that I can't find a ready-made diamond wheel dressing fixture from industrial suppliers like MSC, Travers and numerous others. All they have are fixtures for surface grinders.) I have designed a fixture and I have all the parts I need to make the tool. But before I start making chips, I wonder if anyone has plans for one. Maybe your design is better than mine. I'm happy to pay for plans (or even a complete fixture) if any are available.

    Also, maybe I just haven't checked enough suppliers. Maybe I've missed a less well-known supplier that stocks diamond dressing fixtures for carbide grinders. If anyone has information on such a supplier, I'd appreciate hearing from you.

    Thanks!

    Hey yo Doug!

    Any progress with those photos you offered of your grinder dressing fixture? I'm just about ready to begin working on my own design, but I'd love to see yours for inspiration and ideas.

    Thanks again!

    Sam
