    Default Gun drill sharpening...

    Can anyone help me pick out the best dresser for this wheel? Also can you break the wheel number down for me?
    The company i work for bought a "Hyper Tool" universal gun drill sharpening fixture. It came with a cup-type grinding wheel GF-950-DW-180
    Gun drill sharpening is new to us.

    Off the thread topic but...

    Type in some text, select the text with the mouse, then press the insert link button and add your url. Then the link will show as the text you typed. Without that, it defaults to the title text in the web page:-

    Are you sure that the fixture came with a wheel GF-950-DW-180?

    According to standard designation
    Accurate Diamond Tool Corporation
    it is not the proper shape of the wheel.

    180 stands for the grit size, which is suitable for rough grinding. It your want to make just a hole, it is OK. However, if you want to make a fine hole (surface finish, shape, straightness, etc.), you may consider using a finer grit. It also depends on the carbide grade of your gundrills, coolant type and its clearness and many other parameters of the whole gundrilling system. Note also that the holding of the drill in the Hyper tool fixture is far from perfect.

    Default gun drill fixture

    While working in the toolroom for our company I ground gundrills up to 3 inch
    and as small as a magnifying glass would permit me to measure.

    2 setups were used, the simpler one being a tilt and roll fixture. The gundrills were ground on old cinci tool grinder. Norton 120 CBN cup wheel was used, carefull not to get it too hot. as we did not use coolant. We never dressed the wheel with anything but a stick that matched the wheel grit size.

    The second fixture was a rotary head tilt/roll with a collet holding the drill head with in the fixture.

    This wasn't the latest or greatest setup but it has worked for over 30 years for us.


    We had specialized angles for our material ( engineered copper, aluminum and be alloys.
