Use the Course 260 grit wheel to shape tools and repair bad fractures. Use the Fine 600 grit wheel to smooth surfaces and create sharp edges. Use the Extra Fine 1200 grit wheel to polish surfaces, make heels and create razor-sharp edges. Works on both High Speed Steel and Carbide Gravers. For creating mirror-polished surfaces, consider using Graver Polishing Film for High Speed Steel or Carbides.
These 5 inch / 125 mm diamond wheels work on all major powered hones designed for 5 inch diamond wheels for shaping and sharpening gravers for jewelers and hand engravers. They can also be used without a hone.
These disks are 1mm thick steel electroplated with diamond dust and a ½ inch / 12.75mm arbor hole.
Be sure to attach the wheel to the hone with the manufacturer’s recommended locking bolts. Users may need to use washers for spacers with locking bolts for units that normally accept ½ inch thick wheels.
Use extreme caution when used with powered hones, especially at speeds over 750 rpm. Edges are sharp and can easily cut hands, especially at high speeds.
When used with powered hones, friction will create heat quickly, especially at high speeds. Be careful when shaping and sharpening gravers to avoid burns.
Use proper dust collection and/or safety masks when grinding with powered hones. Inhaling or ingesting metallic dust, especially carbide dust, can cause injury or death at high and/or prolonged exposure levels.

Couldn't be more pleased with these diamond disks! They can be used with or without a power hone. Unlike other diamond disks I have used before, these are sturdy enough to be used with out a "master lap" for support. Combine these with the HSS and Carbide polishing pads and you have a complete sharpening system for less than the cost of one standard diamond wheel.
