Just for fun

Audio 1 (mp3 |6|KB)

In the lesson Selecting the tooling, we looked at a 'Diamond selection table' from a Husqvarna operator's manual.

Although the recommendations provided in the table are specific to the grinding machine covered by that operator's manual, they do provide a good general guide to the tooling used for various applications.

Below are some excerpts from that table. See if you can remember what the suggested bonds, grit sizes and set-ups were for the various applications.

Select your answer from the drop-down list in each cell. When you've finished, see how you went by clicking 'Check your answers'.
