    I have use clusters and they seem to work fine ..Seems with them not being place dead center or in the same radial turn makes them find a new facet...not sure why but they do work well.

    With setting a single point diamond on the/a spot location, perhaps with using a spacer to the long table stop one can easily see the wheel loss part to part, or for a given amount of stock taken so to gauge the wheel breakdown this to aid getting nearer to finish size with fewer measuring’s takes. Also using a spotter to spark-on near size can save much grinding time. I would place a tab of masking tape on a spotter with a sharpie X so seeing the wheel hit I would be about .0035 off the part finish height. The time to dress to cool the part and come in for finish with taking tickle to grease pencil mark on that same spotter would make size .0002 or so close with not taking any measure.

    OT: hAS ANYONE TRIED THE BARGAIN SINGLE POINT DIAMONDS OFFERED ON eBAY?

    Does anyone have a diamond holding block they like, one that can be used down low on the face of the wheel, or up higher to dress the sides?

    I like a bar dresser about 1" x 1 1/2 x 3 1/2 long with a 3/8 diamond hole at 15* angle and set screw in the 1" and 1 1/2” side.
    It can set on the chuck or be double clamped to a block. with having a screw hole, it can be screwed to an angle plate having a few screw threads holes. also, it can set on an angle plate bar so to hand-slide to grind an angle. Simple home made of CRS is good/ok.

    I have used the Eagle Rock swing-arm dresser with success…but don’t own one.

    clusters are handy when useing the full face in a plunge situation

    such as a 20 inch centerless with a stacked set of wheels that dosnt have a

    recyp head

    saves a lot of polishing

    have seen 2 inch bar clusters

    they have fully adjustable mounts and are a bitch to get setup properly

    have seen some spectacular wrecks from folks that leave everything loose and

    try to float clusters in

    in conventional step over surface grinding you dont grind with the full face just the

    leading edge that is breaking down
