Bench Grinder Diamond Dresser Part 2

As I explain in the video, The lathe operations required to make the body of the dresser are more difficult than are probably needed, but it was a fun exercise in maintaining concentricity between features. The milling operations were strait forward and quick to complete. After initial testing I was pleasantly surprised to find that the dresser works even better than I originally anticipated. It yields a nice round wheel, as well as a face parallel to the front of the rest allowing grinding fixtures to be set-up quickly and accurately. It also does an exceptional job of opening up the wheel, thus allowing for a more aggressive cut to be taken while still producing very little heat.
