Question Grinding Wheel Selection

Which green wheel grit is best to touch up carbide boring bar tips? So far I've seen 60, 80, 100.

Default Re: Grinding Wheel Selection

I use a 80 and keep it nicely dressed.Often with carbide it chips away and you need to remove a fair bit of material to get it back to shape.I use a hard stone or a wet stone for a final polish to the cutting edge.
